Script by John Jackson Miller

Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: June 19, 2013
Cover Price: $18.99

The Fate of the Jedi novel series saw the revival of an ancient breed of Sith, from the days of the Lord Naga Sadow. This Lost Tribe of the Sith controlled the natives on the planet Kesh for centuries, until they finally found their way off planet, and into their old galaxy to face the Jedi Knights head on. Yet while the concept of the Lost Tribe of the Sith unfastens numerous possibilities for new stories set on the planet Kesh, the new Spiral trade paperback from Dark Horse instead delivers very little of unique value to the Expanded Universe.

It has been a few generations since the Sith Lords crash landed on Kesh, and the Tribe of the Sith have control of the main continent on the planet, populated by the native Keshiri. While the rulers work slowly and tediously for their eventual return to the stars and revenge on the galaxy, their underlings in this relatively new society strive for control and power of the Tribe itself.

One of the more intriguing additions to the Star Wars expanded universe of recent years has been the Star Wars: Knight Errant series, scripted by John Jackson Miller. Set several years before Darth Bane obliterated the Sith of the old, and established the infamous Rule Of Two, Knight Errant follows the solo efforts of young Jedi Knight Kerra Holt.

Far from the safety of the Republic, Holt becomes lost behind Sith lines. The Sith, having evolved from the era of Knights Of The Old Republic, have spread across an area of the galaxy dominated by family bloodlines consistently warring against each other’s offshoots. With several chief Sith Lords (few of which carry the Darth prefix) concerned with establishing and maintaining their own power, Kerra discovers that the innocent populace of the Sith dominated planets suffer under their rule, and focuses on remaining in the region to help as many innocents as possible.

Issue #5 Cover Price: $3.50

The concluding chapters of KOTOR: War completes the prospect of an escalating war between the Republic and the Mandalorians through the eyes of former Jedi, Zayne Carrick. The final two issues of the Star Wars series deliver a satisfying conclusion, which sadly smarts from some somewhat disjointed storytelling. Despite this, the concluding episodes fare much better than the initial episodes, indicating that it should make for some fair reading as a collected edition.

To set the stage, the Republic is deep into its crusade against the Mandalorians. Unwillingly drafted into armed forces representing his home world, ex-Jedi Zayne Carrick eventually finds himself captured by a group of Mandalorians lead by several disgruntled former Jedi Masters. Redubbing themselves as “The Mandalorian Knights,” they set their sights on prolonging the war against the Republic.

The Sith have a rich and tumultuous history within the framework of the Star Wars universe. From their beginnings on Korriban, to the rise of numerous Imperial threats against the Old Republic, to the Rule of Two that culminated in Palpatine’s rise to power, and beyond to Darth Krayt’s One Sith ascendency of the galaxy. Since Star Wars was released in 1977, Expanded Universe creative teams have enriched the tapestry of Sith history, and the current Knight Errant creates a new thread in this tapestry.

Set 30-odd years before Darth Bane extinguishes the old misguided Sith and institutes the Rule Of Two, Knight Errant focuses on a time where the Sith Empire is nothing more than a large galactic territory shattered by the greed and quest for control among bickering Sith Lords. The ruling Sith impose authoritarian regimes upon the people who populate their worlds, rich with propaganda and continually destroying the wills of the populace.

Knights Of The Old Republic: War continues with its next issue, bringing with it a little enlightenment into some of the new characters introduced in the debut publication. Along with some more depth into the culture of the Mandalorian Warriors, KOTOR: War strays rather from the traditional Revan/Malak and Jedi/Sith tome, and looks more into the impact of an ancient war on specific individuals.

Star War - Dark Horse

Star Wars fans rejoice! Dark Horse has just announced a new way to satisfy your Star Wars cravings.

Fan favorite author John Jackson Miller (Mass Effect: Redemption, Knights Of The Old Republic) has will be writing Star Wars: Knight Errant first as an ongoing comic series to be released later this year, and then next year as a novel to be published by Del Ray Books. The novel will be set in the same era and feature the same characters but following them in an all-new adventure.

Knight Errant will introduce us to Kerra Holt, a young Jedi who’s about to realize that her role in the galaxy is far more important, and vastly different than she could have ever imagined. The series and novel will be set one thousand years before Episode I, in the “Dark Age of the Republic.” This pivotal time in the history of Star Wars has been largely unexplored, until now.
