» » Star Wars Omnibus: Quinlan Vos - Jedi in Darkness
Collected here are the early tales of one of the Jedi Order's most beleaguered knights, Quinlan Vos. From his first appearance as a mind-wiped amnesiac to his triumphant passage to the rank of Jedi Master, few Jedi had more brushes with the powers of the dark side and the evil of the underworld than Quinlan Vos. This volume includes over 120 pages of story that have never been collected, plus the introduction of Jedi Aayla Secura - who made the jump from the pages of the comics to appearances in the films Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith.

This is a nice collection to add to any Star Wars fan's collection. Quinlan Via is a mysterious and unorthodox Jedi and this collection tells his story. Feedback:
1. This is a sizable collection at 500+ pages.
2. The story picks up mid-way thru Quinlan's Jedi career.
3. The stories are varied and shows ties to the prequel trilogy.
4. The art is solid and consistent.
5. You'll be fortunate to get this collection for a reasonable price as it seems pretty scarce.

The Grey Jedi gets his time in the sun and it's worth a read.

I love Quinlan Vos so freaking much that I named my daughter Quinlyn. This omnibus introduces us to the concept that would later become the "Gray Jedi," and if you're anything like me you've always wanted to see the Jedi get a little dirty or the Sith stop being such... Well, Sith. Buy it, used or new, you will not be disappointed.
The thing is sitting in my baby girl's room now so she can always remember her namesake.

Quinlan Vos is one of the best parts of the Star Wars Expanded Universe. His saga, which runs the course of the Star Wars: Republic comic and several of these omnibus volumes, was beautifully written and drawn by John Ostrander and Jan Duursema, and this omnibus is where that saga begins. It actually contains most all of Quinlan Vos's early appearances, all of which are great besides the dreadful "Infinity's End" (which you can skip over and lose nothing). The volume may be starting to get expensive, but it's definitely worth it.

First of all, I have to say that this is a great value. We're talking 500 + pages here, six story lines, 22 individual comic issues. The book itself is slightly smaller than an average trade paperback. It is put together well with quality paper, printing, etc.

Onto the stories themselves, this was a very enjoyable read. Each story has its own distinct flavor so the book is likely to please any reader with gems such as Infinity's End and The Stark Hyperspace War. There are, however, some stories that feel out of place, namely the Devaronian Version, which hardly features Quinlan at all. This story, however, has never before been reprinted so it's a mixed blessing.

Overall, definitely worth a purchase. Quinlan is a very interesting character and the stories, artwork, etc. are very well done.

This graphic novel, which is a collection of comics from the Star Wars: Republic series, is really fantastic. I gave it four stars not because it is not a good book, but because its material involving Quinlan Vos is not as good as it could have been.

This omnibus does cover his first encounters after losing his memory, and how he meets Aayla Secura for the first time, as well as Obi-Wan Kenobi. The stories that feature him are pretty good. However, he appears as only a minor character in several stories. That was my only disappointment with the Omnibus, and the reason for the four star rating instead of five.

More obscure Jedi are mentioned in this Omnibus, like Oppo Rancisis, Tholme, and even Tyvokka. If you're curious about the Stark Hyperspace Wars, this omnibus will answer most of your questions. It really is very good, but I was just hoping it would have more to do with Quinlan.

Either way, it is still a purchase I would make again if I had to. If you are, like me, a great Quin fan, then check out Star Wars: Clone Wars Volumes 4,6,8, and 9. They all have great stories about him.

After the first comic book in this series I had to read more, the more I read the more I was disappointed and all the wonderful ideas I had about this character just didnt pan out. Better off getting the darth bane or darth revan audiobooks, they are amazing.
