Bullet Review:

After how epic Volume 6 was, this just couldn't even try to top it. We get some funny scenes, good character development (some insight into Jarael!), but it's not enough to equal its predecessor. Also, a shame how Jarael has become virtually the only woman in KOTOR, what with the numerous well-developed women earlier in the series - thankfully, the end of this volume hints at another woman in the sidelines.

Also, the art goes pretty much everywhere. Bong returns with his goofy style

John Jackson Miller on the script as ever, with Brian Ching, Bong Dazo, and Dean Zachary on the art work. The first story, Prophet Motive, is covered by Dazo, and sees Zayne and crew, returning after a well-earned holiday, taking on a Futures racket. This story definitely had a vibe of a more light-hearted, comical tale. The dialogue is a little less snappy, the antagonists a little less sharp. I can’t say I’m a big fan of this story. However I did like the setting and the basic idea – a remote

This volume features three stories that mark Zayne Carrick's first foray into the universe as a free man. This is a new starting point for this series and has sort of turned it into a Star Wars version of the show "Leverage." The characters are still compelling and new secrets start to come to light here.

My favorite story was the second, "Faithful Execution," which actually plays like an episode of "Firefly." The group decide to investigate a lost Luxury liner for loot and to unravel the mystery

Pretty much once I got to this graphic novel the series begins to degrade. Zayne Carrick and Gryph have cleared their names and are now free agents travelling the Republic looking for whatever adventure they might come across. Jareal and Rodan are still with them, as well as a silent robot named Ebee. However the stories simply did not have the same panash as the first few stories did.

The main story involves a sporting event that is very popu

Background: Knights of the Old Republic: Dueling Ambitions was first released in six issues from December 2008 until May 2009. The trade paperback was released in October that year. It was written by John Jackson Miller and pencilled by Brian Ching, Bong Dazo, and Dean Zachary. This is Zachary's lone Star Wars credit, but he has done a great deal of work for Malibu comics (I don't recognize any titles), as well as for DC (including Batman, Superboy, and Green Lante

Zayne Carrick est maintenant libéré de toutes les charges qui pesaient contre lui. Il est libre comme l'air et décide de rejoindre ses amis plutôt que l'Ordre Jedi. Il voyage à travers la galaxie en quête d'aventures et d'opportunité d'argent. Lors de ses voyages, il fait face à des criminels, un ancien Sith et des esclavagistes. On en apprend plus sur le passé trouble de son amie Jarael.

Jusqu'à présent, c'est le tome que j'ai le moins aimé de la série KOTOR. La première histoire était ennuyante

"The new adventures of Zayne Carrick as renegade Jedi, with startling revelations on Jarael's past. Not as intense as earlier volumes but nice."
RATING: 3 Out Of 5

Digamos que la primera mitad presentó una historia demasiado floja e intrascendente. Mientras su segunda mitad hace avanzar la historia hacia una historia que ya quisiera empezar a leer en las novelas. Raven. Lo bueno que voy a la par entre las historias del cómic y las novelas.

Zayne and co, now free try to do scams but end up helping people instead. There's 3 stories in this volume, and the race one is the best. It solves some problems and presents the characters in a new light. The last story asks more questions than it answers. A good read.

Short story collection following Zayne and his friends after the final events in Vindication.

Interesting stories - but almost all of them are mere background builders except the last one that seems to pave the way for the next multiple volume story line.

Até os esquemas do Marn são menos alucinados que os usuais até este ponto. É claramente uma trade a preparar a seguinte, com todo o prejuízo que daí advém.

where's that confounded bridge? The dialogue in these installments was atrocious. At least the art rebounded from last volume.

Disappointing start to a new story arc (or series of stories as I don't really see much of an arc yet).

Sometimes, commenting on comic volumes feels like commenting on a single chapter in a book.
