Graphic Novel Review: Star Wars Old Republic Vol. 3: The Lost Suns by Alexander Freed

Read for: Graphic Novel Challenge
Synopsis: "One of the Republic's elite spies, Theron Shan, embarks on an assignment to uncover dark secrets that could shatter the fragile peace with the Sith and plunge the galaxy back into war An old Jedi, Ngani Zho - once Theron's mentor, and formerly thought lost in Sith territory - has returned, quite a bit more peculiar than before he left. Unfortunately, he''s the only one who can guide Theron on his mission. Quickly, Theron's hands are full with Zho, a troublesome thief, and the Sith who never should have let that old Jedi return to the Republic."

My Review: I have had to really push through this short series of graphic novels. I am a fan of Star Wars but this series was just not for me. The storyline seems a little jumbled and needs more filling out. This was the best of out of the three volumes but it still feels disconnected. I did enjoy the cast of characters, a nice variety and each with a full personality. The artwork was also a high point. I am sad to say I am glad this series is over, I had high hopes for it but it sadly fell short, maybe it is best to stick with the novels and movies (at least for me, I need a little more world and plot development).
My Rating: Unfortunately, I am giving up on Star Wars Graphic Novels (at least characters and storylines I am unfamiliar with) since they just don't have the world building and cohesive storyline I need to enjoy them.  I give this one a rating of Two Paws.


  1. Well, that's a shame. Too bad they didn't have a good plot.

    1. I think a story this epic needs a longer issue, there was just too much missing in the plot and storyline.
