Star Wars Age of the Republic: Darth Maul #1

Star Wars Age of the Republic: Darth Maul #1 is a written by Jody Houser, drawn by Luke Ross and is a one shot featured in Marvel's Star Wars Age of the Republic series, with each comic featuring around a different Star Wars character from this time.

The comic is the follow-up to the Darth Maul mini-series by Cullen Bunn, which Ross also drew, featuring Darth Maul in the alleys of Coruscant on a mission from his master, Darth Sidious.

Upon completing the mission, Maul meets with his master, who is displeased at Maul's growing bloodlust and in order to teach him a lesson as to why he must control his anger, the two venture to the ancient Sith world of Malachor.

I can't go into more details without spoilers so I recommend you pick this up for yourself and read it as it is well written and drawn and also about one of the coolest characters in Star Wars. I like how the comic explores the role of Maul in Sidious’ scheme to take down the Republic and the relationship that Maul and his master share. It isn't a partnership as shown in the Phantom Menace but rather one of master and servant, with Maul playing the sometimes reluctant role of servant.

As it is a one-shot, it is rather fast paced and if you haven't read the predecessor mini-series, you will be a little lost on some of the references.

I'm going to give Darth Maul an A-

Guys thanks always for reading. Realize I'm slow getting these out which is why I'm making an effort to do more after such long breaks (got 2 out this week so I think I'm doing good). Make sure to stay tuned for the next review which will be another Star Wars Age of the Republic review only this time it will be feature not a Sith, but one of the more interesting Jedi to have lived in my opinion; Qui-Gon Jinn.
