Star Wars: Darth Maul (comic) - Paul's REVIEW

Darth Maul (Star Wars)Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Goodreads

Title: Star Wars: Darth Maul

Writers: Cullen Bunn & Chris Eliopoulos
Artist: Luke Ross
Recent Release Date: September 5, 2017

Synopsis: Raised on hate, fear and anger...steeped in the ways of darkness...and trained to kill! Darth Maul's time as apprentice to Darth Sidious has long been cloaked in shadows - now at last his tale of revenge is revealed! It's a story of rage unleashed as Darth Maul prepares for his first encounter with the hated Jedi. But when a Jedi Padawan is captured by sinister forces, why is Maul so determined to find her? And what role will a band of bounty hunters, including Cad Bane and Aurra Sing, play? Get to know the galaxy's deadliest Zabrak like never before!


Review: This story is set before Episode I. There are so many connections to different Star Wars eras. I loved it! There are aliens from the prequels, the original trilogy, and even The Force Awakens. The crowd scenes feel even more Star Wars because of this. There are even characters featured from the animated shows. Cad Bane and Aurra Sing! 

The artwork in this graphic novel is beautiful. I love the imagery of red and blue representing good and evil as well as the skin colors and lightsabers of Darth Maul and his jedi combatant. 

I give this graphic novel a 5/5. I hope Marvel makes more comics set in this era.
