Star Wars: Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir (graphic novel) - Paul's Review

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads

Star Wars: Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir
Author: Jeremy Barlow
Artist: Juan Frigeri 
Publication Year: 2014

Synopsis: Getting cut in half by Obi-Wan Kenobi and being rejected by his former Sith master Darth Sidious isn't going to defeat Darth Maul. In fact, it only makes him mad enough to take on the galaxy--with an army of Mandalorians!

After forming the Shadow Collective--a criminal organization composed of the Hutts, Black Sun, the Mandalorians, and the fearsome Nightbrothers--Maul wages war against Darth Sidious and his generals, Count Dooku and General Grievous! 

Adapted from unproduced screenplays for Season 6 of The Clone Wars television show, this is the final chapter planned for Darth Maul's saga!


Review: I have really taken advantage of this new revamp of the Star Wars expanded universe. This comic was one of the first published media in the new canon. This graphic novel is based off of unproduced scripts from the 6th season of The Clone Wars

Darth Maul starts this story escaping from Sidious and Dooku with the help of his Death Watch friends. General Grevious and more of Maul's Shadow Collective allies make appearances in this book. 

I really enjoyed this book. It felt just like the tv show. I'm looking forward to more books following the storylines that were left open. I can't wait for Dark Disciple

I give this graphic novel a 5/5! A must read for all Star Wars fans, especially those of the animated series.
