And I love that I needed this title for a Comics activity in which the author was going to be and Amazon helped me recieve it three days after orderiing with no extra charges. Kevin J. Anderson, whom I meet in the comics activity is not only a great author but he is also a great man and humble human being. I ordered two of this graphic novels one for me and another for my daughter and Kevin J. sign both of them and I could send it to my daughter in time for her graduation.

In my humble opinion I think this is the best part of the Tales of the Jedi stories. While Kevin J. Anderson seems to be the only scriptwriter working on the script now we still see that his script is influenced by his earlier cooperation with fellow scriptwriter Tom Veitch on TOTJ and that he uses characters and places Veitch wrote into existence into the EU and that both of them contributed to fleshing out the expanded universe and giving other scriptwriters more material to work on when they wrote EU stories or made roleplaying games and video games.

What was once considered a golden era of the Jedi, following the destruction and scattering of the Sith Empire (Its remnants were retconned later to be in hiding an reorganized before returning in the TOR era) with the Sith seemingly ceasing to be a major threat and opposition to the Jedi with only isolated pockets of Sith cults to be contained on planets like Onderon and mostly having to deal with small wars and criminals, is abruptly ended with Exar Kun and Ulic Qel-Droma creating their own powerful Sith organization and starting a major war in the galaxies that would affect the galaxy and the Republic for years and setting the stage for new Sith organizations to rise.

One of the main highlights here are the introduction of the Mandalorians, a warrior organization who despite not able to use the Force are nonetheless are force to be reckoned with and that it sets the stage for further use of the Mandalorians in the EU by other scriptwriters like those working on the KOTOR era.

While critics may have a point that the story seems too rushed and chaotic, Veitch and Anderson can only do so much with a few issues and that other scriptwriters may exploit the plotholes in their work.

Hugh Fleming's cover art in TOTJ is still as impressive as earlier cover art I've seen from him while working on TOTJ.

This book is awesome and worth picking up before Disney denies all past EU history of Star Wars.

Lucas Books latched on to a brilliant concept for telling the stories from ancient Jedi lore. Instead of telling these stories in book form, which could be a bit much in terms of asking the fan base to learn and empathize with new characters, they contracted with Dark Horse Comics to tell these stories in graphic novel format. The series was called "Tales of the Jedi". "The Sith War" was the first of these graphic novels that I read and it is also one of most compelling, involved, and relevant tales of the old Jedi order. The time of the events in this story takes place some 4000 years before the original trilogy and the events and characters involved will have an impact in the modern Star Wars universe.

"The Sith War" focuses on the evil machinations of a corrupt Jedi named Exar Kun (who will play a major role in the "Jedi Academy Trilogy" books) who has become poisoned by the seductive dark side power of the Sith. Kun used his influence to corrupt a number of good Jedi with this power. One of these Jedi, named Ulic Qel-Droma, was so perverted by Kun's influence that he turned on his family, friends, and the entire Republic and was responsible for actions that thrust the galaxy into a devastating war. Qel-Droma is not an evil man, just a vulnerable man corrupted by the pure evil of Exar Kun. He comes to realize, to his horror, the consequences of his actions and tries to fight back at against Kun at great consequence to himself.

"The Sith War" provides a continuation of earlier "Tales of the Jedi" stories and answers many questions that readers may have from reading the current Star Wars novels. "The Sith War" is notable for showing the culmination of this bloody conflict, while also explaining what happened to Exar Kun. In addition, the warrior who was the inspiration for Boba Fett and the armor he wore is introduced here. A brilliant military strategist named Mandalore (the inspiration of Fett's Mandalorian Armor) allied himself with Kun and Qel-Droma in this war and fought valiantly. This graphic novel is one that the reader will go back to time and time again to read about the events of that war and to try and pick up on additional details they may have missed the first time around. It is definitely worth getting.
