3.0 out of 5 stars Okay but not great Dec 11 2011
By Brandon
Format:Paperback
I found the artwork not as great as I had expected and the storyline to be a bit weak compared to the old republic novels. Also, it took me about 30 minutes to read through the entire graphic novel so for your money, its not a great investment.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring. June 7 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was simply a boring story. Sure it gives a lot of lore information but the general story feels rushed, the characters insipid and they even come up with character development that never had a start so doesn't make any sense. I was very disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Again, disappointed. Oct. 25 2011
Format:Paperback
I am a sucker for Star Wars, so even though I disliked the first trade paperback in this series, I decided to buy the second as well. MISTAKE!

Much like the first one, the art is boring, the story is boring, and... You guessed it, the characters are boring.

The Old Republic could be amazing. It has potential dripping out of every pore. Instead we get heaps and heaps of boring.

2.0 out of 5 stars A let down from volume 1 Aug. 14 2011
By Brendan Flood - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In anticipation of the upcoming Old Republic MMO, I figured I'd check out some of the story surrounding the game. I really enjoyed The Old Republic, Volume 1, since it was told from the point of view of an up and coming sith in the empire. The artwork was quite satisfying and the story captivated my attention long enough that I finished it in one sitting. Volume 2, however, was quite different. The artwork felt too rough and unfinished for my taste and the story just wasn't as good as the first one.

In this volume readers get the history of the treaty of Coroscant and the attack on said planet by the sith. The overall story was interesting, but the dialog in the comic was forced, contrived, and bland. I didn't feel any real connection with any character since there are so many in the comic and they switch between them so often you aren't quite sure who is doing the talking. There was a poorly done romance thrown in with no rhyme or reason, and when key characters were killed the characters seemed to do little more than shrug.

The only reason I didn't rate this a 1 star was there was a helpful summary of characters and events at the end of the graphic novel. It too wasn't terrific, but it helped serve as a cheatsheet of the key players in this time in the Star Wars universe. I'd only recommend picking this up if you are really looking to get every bit of lore you can before the game and can't find it at a library. Do pick up Volume 1, however, it is quite good. I am hoping Volume 3 will be up to the same quality as 1.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected. Oct. 31 2011
By Some Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am one of those rare Star Wars fans who will not be buying the upcoming Old Republic game. However I am an avid fan of the Old Republic mythos and jump on every opportunity to learn more about Jedi and Sith of old. When the first comic in this series came out I bought it right away and loved it. The artwork was quite good and the story itself was very insightful. It is always a treat to see things from a darker persepctive.
I preordered Threat of Peace and assumed it would be as good as Blood of the Empire but I was mistaken. First off I'll say that the artwork was downright terrible. It had a very raw and unfinished feel and mangled the character's faces on several occassions. When I got the comic I was expecting a front row seat to the Sacking of Coruscant through the eyes of the Jedi or Republic soldiers. I don't think there are more than ten pages about the sacking and those pages don't offer much anyway. If you really want in on that event then read Decieved which is a good novel about Darth Malgus who is much more interesting than Angral (featured in the comic).
All in all this comic was a huge let down and not worth the money I paid. Actually the last few pages contain a cool character/world/event list that should interest people looking to buy the game.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Aug. 2 2011
By Mitch Hamilton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There was a drastic drop-off of quality in both art and story from Volume 1 to Volume 2 of this series.

Very disappointing.

1.0 out of 5 stars A mess June 17 2011
By Sphinx - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Simply put, this comic's worst problem is the complete lack of pacing. There is nothing being worked toward, nor do you ever have time to get a grasp for the characters. The comic prefers to simply smack you in the face with action scenes that have overly cheesy dialogue.

The art style is quite disappointing. Half the time it's impossible to see the expression on a character's face. The other half, the expression is either strange and inhuman or completely at odds with how the character actually seems to be feeling.

For the same story at the beginning but told far better, simply watch the cinematic trailer "Deceived."

For an Old Republic comic that's actually decent to pretty good, read Blood of the Empire.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bad art, confusing story, bad representation of SWTOR Aug. 6 2013
By K. Truett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
So I'm a huge fan of SWTOR and have tried hard to gather support for the game. I saw this for my Kindle and decided to try it out after reading the first volume of the SWTOR comics (which was great).

First of all I'm not sure who the artist is, but I feel like they never even looked at how the characters they were representing have already been portrayed. The book has several major characters from the SWTOR game in it (Sateele Shan, Master Orgus, Braden from the BH story, Nox from the Smuggler storyline, Darth Baras) and almost none of them look how they appear in the game. I get that there can be some differences, but these issues are major. So major in fact I didn't recognize who was who. Best example is Sateele Shan. She's probably the most established character as far as looks go from SWTOR next to Malgus and for some reason they decided to give her long braided, red hair in this edition. You have a flagship character that has an established look and they totally go in another direction. Why exactly?

Then you have Master Orgus. In the Jedi Knight story he plays a major role and has a certain look to him. In this story he's a fat bald guy. The only characters that get a pass in my book are Braden and the Sith, since Baras is just a lord at this point (plus Sith change all the time).

Anyways the story doesn't make a lot of sense and feels like it's jammed into the lore of the game just to be a filler. The artwork is bad and I swear the characters are hard to follow because they're never consistently drawn.

Big disappointment, deleted off my Kindle when I was done.
