[Dark Disciple] [] Dark Disciple and Kindred Spirits
By Christie Golden
Reviews by Darth Kondorr, Poland

Dark Disciple:
What could be just some soulless tie-in novel set by the end of The Clone Wars, surprised me to be a true sequel to Filoni’s TV Show, offering adventures, emotions, contemplations on the nature of the force and a proper finale....

Kindred Spirits:
Golden [...] is very competent at capturing these characters [...] the story [...] is rather forgettable...read full review

[Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir] [] Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir
By Charles Soule, Marco Checchett et al.
Reviewed by Darth Kondorr, Poland

After a rather disappointing Obi-Wan and Anakin comic book, set shortly before Attack of the Clones, we get the first truly amazing entry in the new canon, that ironically is now the only "canon" entry from Dark Horse Comics. Now what you need to know, is that this is not a standalone story. It is possible to enjoy it on its own, but I really encourage you to watch The Clone Wars first. Well, the story is pretty simple, but anything that involves Sith on Sith on Mandalorians is instantly amazing. Reading this, I could hear Witwers twisted voice of Maul, the dark charismatic Dooku and the diabolic Grievous....read full review
