Pretty dull stuff. Incoherent wishy-wash mess with no sense of focus or dialogue. Some nice art in the pod race sequences but never really got my pulse racing. The only part I liked was the foreshadowing of Quinlan Vos in future storylines and that was about one page. Extra star because the art is of a decent quality. Timothy Truman just doesn't have the heart for Star Wars it seems.

This TPB takes over where Outlander leaves off. Once again for fans of the Tusken Raiders will enjoy this. Also this gives a bit more depth to the period between Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones. Artwork is definitely an added bonus.

Des émissaires Jedi doivent être envoyés sur Malastare pour rétablir la paix entre différentes factions et pour mettre fin aux actes terroristes. Cependant, le règlement du conflit ne fait pas l'affaire de tous. En seconde partie, Mace Windu et Deepa Bilaba vont enquêter sur Nar Shaada pour trouver les gens qui font le trafique d'animaux pour en faire des bêtes d'attaque.

La première partie était vraiment ennuyante. Les missions de négociation en BD, c'est rarement gagnant. Cette partie en est vr

Very well written with great illustrations. It was nice to see some of the lesser known Jedi in action. I didn't realize some Jedi carried red sabers, so that was some cool new information for me.
The action and intrigue in this graphic novel were so good I was disappointed when it ended :) I'm looking forward to reading more about several of the characters. Depa Billaba and Quinlan Vos are two I really enjoyed seeing, although Quinlan's appearance was very brief. I'm also hoping to learn who the

Fun story featuring some newer Jedi: Mace Windu and a little bit of Yaddle, the Jedi whom shares a species with Yoda. These Jedi were brought in to broker peace between warring faction only to discover there was more than meets the eye.

After that was settled, the scene shifts to Nal Hutta, the moon of home planet of the Hutts. That was fun. It was an ok read. Nothing special but I always find it fun to read about the Star Wars Universe.

A bit boring and then nothing is really wrapped up. The Jedi Council is helping to negotiate a peace conference and the suddenly Mace Windu decides to leave for Nar Shadda. The only good thing about the comic is that it first introduced Quinlan Vos.

Recommends it for: avid Star Wars fans, those who want the whole "Republic" series
A decent story, marred by not-great art and flawed storytelling.

This is Book 3 of the Star Wars: Republic books; the first two books ("Prelude To Rebellion" and "Outlander") were significantly better and more solid in both art and storytelling.
