– Spoiler Review –

We have reached the end. Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir is part of the end of the Dark Horse era of Star Wars comics and this is its final issue. It’s also a look at Darth Maul’s possibly final arc from The Clone Wars and his fate, along with Mother Talzin’s, hangs in the balance as Darth Sidious descends upon his former apprentice and old confidante to settle things once and for all. It’s interesting to note that, while settling a number of hanging story threads, this series ends with almost as many questions as it had when it started. However, these questions, combined with #4 still being a great read, gives the Son of Dathomir series quite the send-off.

For Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir #2, it has payoffs in spades and even bigger setups than I could’ve possibly imagined. It definitely makes me wish even more so that these episodes of The Clone Wars got to be part of the ‘Lost Missions’ (Season 6), but I’m just immensely happy we’re seeing it in one form or another.

It’s still a bit of a shock that we originally left Maul separated in two pieces lying at the bottom of some seemingly endless shaft on Naboo to suddenly watching him wreak havoc on the galaxy in The Clone Wars. It was even more shocking when TCW was cancelled and somehow his fate continued to be up in the air. Thankfully, someone had the good sense to adapt his unaired/unproduced final arc in TCW into a limited comic series. And while the first issue isn’t grand, it is thrilling and certainly feels like an episode of the show. Continue reading “Canon Comic Review: Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir #1”
