5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious sophomore effort Feb. 4 2008
By Daiho - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The first story arc of many comic books tends to be rather lifeless. The authors generally write them not as self-contained stories, but as a writer's guide establishing the major characters, settings, and situations that will carry on for years, if not decades.

The first volume of Dark Horse's KOTOR was as origin stories go fairly entertaining. Despite having the aroma and flavor of Lucas left-overs (a Jedi-centric story featuring a white teenage boy set in the midst of a galaxy-wide war populated with the same old species playing the same old roles), writer John Jackson Miller spiced things up with a couple of clever plot twists and great comic timing.

In this second volume, though, he hits his stride, delivering what has to be the funniest comic book of 2007, and certainly the funniest Star Wars comic ever. Forget Tag and Bink. Check out Del and Dob, the Ithorian brothers who woke up on the wrong side of the species. Assigned to track a likely contact of padawan fugitive Zayne Carrick, the pair set in motion a 2-chapter comedy of errors when they decide to take the initiative and capture their contact instead. Besides creating characters that are sure to be fan favorites, Miller also finds at last a voice for Gryph, a character that previously played only a role (the problem-solver who knows where to go and who to ask), but who comes into his own as a key player and comic sidekick in both stories of Flashpoint.

Miller in addition introduces two Mandalorians that will likely be appearing in future stories. The evil genius Demagol is rather crudely drawn. Outfitted in Mandalorian armor, we never see his face or learn much about him except that he is investigating the source of Jedi force abilities in order to neutralize or replicate such powers. And he enjoys experimenting on live subjects. He's prepared to have his way with Jarael when Zayne and the Mandalorian deserter Rohlan show up on the penal outpost of Flashpoint to launch an expertly crafted jailbreak. Less comic in tone than the story featuring the Ithorian brothers, Miller nevertheless manages to work in some great one-liners, like the farewell between the Jedi known as Squint - "May the Force be with you." - and Zayne - "Yeah, we'll see how that goes..."

And if that weren't enough for one volume, Miller also delivers a chapter of back-story on Lucien Draay, the leader and fixer for the murderous cabal of Jedi seers, those who hired the Ithorians and who want Zayne Carrick's head.

About the only disappointment in this volume, aside from the anemic villain Demagol, is the rotating stable of artists. I have since the Clone Wars been a fan of Brian Ching and enjoyed his work on Commencement, but in Flashpoint he delivers only two chapters out of six. And compared side-by-side with Dustin Weaver and Harvey Tolibao's pencils, I find Ching's work stiffer, less life-like, less animated.

My only other concern has to do with the KOTOR universe as a whole, which is being crafted partly by Miller, but which is also in part dictated by Lucas Arts, publisher of the two popular KOTOR video games. While reading these comics, what becomes increasingly apparent - and annoying - is that time and innovation move at a glacial pace in the SW universe. For over 4000 years Mandalorians wear the same basic armor design, hyperspace travel seems not to have improved, nor has hologram technology. Humans rely on droids that mimic human form in its crudest manufacture; their design, form and function change as little as their nomenclature. The same is true of ship form and function; space battles are waged like chess matches - powerful but unwieldy capital ships supported by smaller, maneuverable craft following set rules of engagement. Perhaps some future writer will take note of these trends and craft a story explaining how the constant wrangling of Jedi and Sith retarded technological and social progress in the Galaxy Far Far Away.

John Jackson Miller continues Knights of the Old Republic in volume two Flashpoint. Zayne and his crew are still trying to find a way to survive when they land on Vanquo to gather supplies. Then mandalorians arrive and after an attempt to flee, Jarael is captured. Although the rest of the crew makes it to their ship(the Last Resort) It's been hijacked by a mandalorian, Rohlan Dyre. After being acquainted to Rohlan, Zayne and his crew find themselves flying back to a small planet where the mandalorians are scientifically testing captured jedi. There are also two other chapters in the book. One shows the past of Master Lucien Draay and the other four members of their jedi council came to be. The last chapter concludes the book with a situation that reveals part of Luciens plan to capture Zayne, and this reunites Zayne with his father. This story is good, but I think I personally enjoyed the first volume just a little more. Although I also think the art in this book looks a little cleaner. I give this book 4.4/5 stars
5.0 out of 5 stars Must Own for any Star Wars fan Nov. 27 2013

I can't say enough about the Knights of the Old Republic Series. It is without a doubt, the best of all Star Wars graphic novels and is on par or better than anything by Marvel or DC has put out in the past 10 years.

Great 2nd effort for the series, and a MUST OWN for any Star Wars fan.
5.0 out of 5 stars Now this is Star Wars! March 19 2015
By Crystal Starr Light - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Zayne Carrick, Marn Heirogryph, Jarael, Camper, and Elbee continue their trek through the galaxy, trying to avoid Master Lucien and his counselors. This time around, the team encounters Mandalorians and plans a daring escape of someone close to their group - and then we learn a bit more about Master Lucien and his fellow Jedi.

This was fantastic. From the first page, I was hooked, and I could barely stop until the very end. I will go so far as to say, I think this was BETTER than volume 1 - which isn't a surprise, because everything has been set up, and characters get a chance to grow and explore.

One thing that stood out to me that I loved in particular: the Moomo Brothers, the Ithorians. In previous Star Wars media, Ithorians have been peaceloving and amicable, content to be on their world and absorb knowledge around them. But the Moomo Brothers are the exact opposite - they are HILARIOUSLY stupid (and somehow in that perfect comedy way without get stupid stupid), violent, and selfish. I am so very tired of the Star Wars trope of saying ALL aliens of Species X are "insert adjective here". Hutts being mobsters; Twi'Lek slave girls; Rodian morons. The list goes on. But here, I start to see a variety amongst the species, something I've been clamoring for since forever.

The art, the characters, the story - all top notch. We see a few new characters (Rohlan the Mandalorian, who somehow became one of my favorite characters) and then some cameos from the game. So keep your eyes open!

I really don't have much more to say (unless you want another 6 paragraphs of my gushing) other than I enjoyed this so much, and I am moving directly to volume 3!

4.0 out of 5 stars Story gets moving in second volume July 28 2012
By milp - Published on Amazon.com

I liked the KoTOR games and decided to pick up the comics. The back story behind the Mandalorian wars seemed interesting but they really took their time getting the plot moving. Things pick up here. I'm on the third volume now and the plot gets even richer. I was reluctant to continue reading these things at first but I think I'll go through with the series. I'm only giving it 4 stars because the companion character, Gryph, is just a little too cartoonish.

As far as the seller goes, they packaged the book well and secure. It arrived in a practically new condition. I will say that the shipping took a while. The item still arrived in the window of time allowed by amazon but it did take a couple of weeks for the book to get here. That might not be the seller's fault; it could be USPS's. Hard to say. I would still buy from them in the future because the comic arrived unscathed.
