    This was an okay graphic novel I liked the artwork and story concept but there were certain things that were off However, being this is based off of a novel, some of the responsibility falls there so my rating will be a bit generous.The storyline for Xesh shows such promise and also between Hawk and Lok The Jedi Je daii are still in the baby steps of understanding the force and learning and the don t even have lightsabers yet In fact, young Xesh has the first these Je daii recall seeing No This was an okay graphic novel I liked the artwork and story concept but there were certain things that were off However, being this is based off of a novel, some of the responsibility falls there so my rating will be a bit generous.The storyline for Xesh shows such promise and also between Hawk and Lok The Jedi Je daii are still in the baby steps of understanding the force and learning and the don t even have lightsabers yet In fact, young Xesh has the first these Je daii recall seeing Now, I am not exactly sure when in the timeline this takes place but with the ships they had, it doesn t seem right I mean, we have a Sith race Je daii who were not on the side of good When everything kick started they were on their own world still The Je daii from Dathomir also didn t add up from other books I have read, but I suppose history may have been lost and forgotten on both sides Perhaps is it just me, but with the other Star Wars books I have read, this doesn t seem to fall in line, but being this is based on a novel, I blame that authorDid he read other novels before writing his own Also, why is there a sandworm from Dune in Star Wars I am fine with large worms, but draw them in a new way, don t take the same exact worm from another world At this point, I can t help but wonder how well either side did their research.What I did find very interesting were the Force powered ships and how the force sabers can only be used by those channeling the force thus far, they only know how this works in anger The Je daii arebasic here,about balance Not so black and white, good and bad which I though to be neat This idea crops up throughout the Star Wars timeline but not too often This book also focuses on self discover and honesty I really did enjoy seeing how the characters grow, mature and come to terms with things through out the book.Overall, not bad, but not superb A good story on it s own but yet ownstoryline that seems a bit detached for the overall timeline of Star Wars

deeper into the story and it doesn t just feel like the beginning of a tale I was admittedly disappointed by the fact that we don t getinformation from Xesh about what life is like for the Force Hounds brought up by the Rakatan Infinite Empire I ve a feeling it s a deliciously chilling experience, so I m hoping for that to come out at some point Telling that story would also really round out the characters of Xesh and Trill as well as, I feel, making the Rakata an even darker threat thus enhancing the story overall I feel like the Rakata are being done pretty well Like I said in my review of Volume 1, in KOTOR they were awesome and fearsome from that ancient, long disappeared evil perspective but here they feelsinister by far And for some reason their appearance creeps me out, even though it never did in KOTOR Disappointingly their culture and background is barely expanded upon here only a holocron of an advanced and distant race called the Kwa lays the bare bones of the history behind it out for us In itself it dangles some fascinating hints about ancient history in this universe, but I need , dammit I feel like we need to seeof the Infinite Empire here We need to seeof their culture and background in order to understand their brutal nature better and really crank up the tension and threat level on this bad boy The holocron telling us but we underestimated their inherent evilness isn t good enough We need to see just how sick these puppies are in order to be truly repulsed.I continue to be fascinated by this series presentation of the early Je daii pursuing a path of balance, not of exclusively the light side Mainly because the whole light side versus dark side thing has always felt way too simplistic and dualistic to me, much as I adore Star Wars So I find myself really engaging with a Je daii Order that expounds ideas about the nature of the Force that as a fan I ve secretly held all along And the series makes good use of it here It s not just the Je daii in this volume who are actively trying to pursue this balance, but there are big question marks over Xesh and Daegen Lok They re totally ambiguous, and whilst I didn t exactly like Daegen Lok I found myself drawn in to trying to figure out his angle Is he evil Good but wrongfully condemned and turned bitter Just plain psycho Kind of a wild mix of all those things, I think The fallibility of the Je daii Council also fascinated me here This is a big theme in the KOTOR series and a plot I ve always found particularly fascinating as it always throws up interesting questions in any era should the Council be trusted absolutely Are they fallible Sidenote yes, is definitely my personal answer to that If so, should their judgment be trusted What if someone else has it right In this volume it s very much the Council versus Daegen Lok and Xesh and honestly it s difficult to wholeheartedly back the Council on this one, even though Daegen and Xesh come across as highly dubious here But I love dilemmas like this in my SW I generally adore anything that gives us complex, ambiguous, and fallible characters even to the point of being infuriating because I find myself appreciating the humanity of it What can I say Humanity is often utter absurdity, and I secretly relish it.Bit puzzled as to why no one figures out that Trill comes from the same place as Xesh She has the Aurebesh letter tattooed on her face just like him and her name is also a letter, you d think it d be kind of a giveaway But oh well And Shae Koda s pantaloons are still silly, but, you know I was hoping fordevelopment of Sek nos Rath and Tasha Ryo here Sek nos because of the Sith species being so little known, Tasha because of the interesting conflict in her personal life but our Journeyers take a back seat in the second volume I have struggled a little with remembering the names of people, planets, and locations here Normally I never have a problem with SW names, and I m generally good with weird names comes from a background studying other cultures through history , but occasionally I found myself flicking back and re reading a page to try and cement the names in my mind I think either the names have to bedistinctive, or the appearance of the characters does I have no problems remembering Xesh and Trill, but Shae, Sek nos, Tasha, Hawk, Rori, and the other Je daii were problematic for me But hey, it ends on a good cliffhanger.There are a few problems and a few disappointments here, but I m going to see this through to the end I m enjoying this, and I suck up SW ancient era, so I m engaged enough to want to read the last volume 7 out of 10

    I might have to pass on the rest of this series, even though I m trying to stay caught up with the goings on in Star Wars these days This series is just far too boring, coupled with the fact that it doesn t even seem to honor its own premise As I mentioned in my review of volume 1, Dawn of the Jedi is meant to take place 36,000 years before A New Hope For people who have read other Star Wars ancient history, this is an additional 31,000 years earlier than Golden Age of the Sith, which was p I might have to pass on the rest of this series, even though I m trying to stay caught up with the goings on in Star Wars these days This series is just far too boring, coupled with the fact that it doesn t even seem to honor its own premise As I mentioned in my review of volume 1, Dawn of the Jedi is meant to take place 36,000 years before A New Hope For people who have read other Star Wars ancient history, this is an additional 31,000 years earlier than Golden Age of the Sith, which was previously the oldest known Star Wars tale And yet, nothing is different The amount of creative room Ostrander should have to really delve into what a galaxy as technologically advanced and diversely populated as the one in Star Wars looked like tens of thousands of years earlier should be a fantastic premise Instead, we re treated to the same old same old.One thing that is repeatedly mentioned in the series set up is that hypserspace travel has not yet been invented Yet our heroes are able to pop around to seemingly any planet they want to in about 12 seconds Additionally, lightsabers supposedly haven t been invented, and some people use guns that shoot bullets But then other people use guns that shoot lasers that look identical to the blasters we ve seen 36,000 years from now And also lightsabers get invented right away, thanks to the fact that the planet where lightsaber crystals are harvested is apparently 12 feet away from the Je daii homeworld, and also one of the Je daii knows a guy who can just give him some So now there s gonna be like a million lightsabers, boink, just like that It s idiotic how hard Ostrander is squandering his premise I mean, people don t even dress differently It s like cloaks and boots were invented in Star Wars and everyone was like great, all done with clothes The only way this series could be anythe same would be if Luke Skywalker showed up.There are a couple of interesting tidbits here and there We learn in this volume that a race of Force wielding do gooders existed many years before the Je daii, and are the ones who used their technology to bring the Je daii together This is pretty cool to think about, but basically we are just taught this in a 2 page history lesson, rather than shown it in any active way Also, the situation in which we find out about this is incredibly contrived.I guess I m just having trouble taking this series seriously It s a great idea basically flushed down the same toilet every other run of the mill Star Wars story gets flushed down I ll see how I feel when volume 3 comes out, but I bet I m done with this

during the end of 2012 beginning of 2013 The trade paperback was released in July of 2013 It was written by John Ostrander and pencilled by Jan Duursema, the same team who produced the previous arc in the ongoing Dawn of the Jedi series Star Wars Dawn of the Jedi, Vol 1 Force Storm The first issue of the third arc, Force Wars will be released in November 2013 The Prisoner of Bogan begins approximately two months after the conclusion of Force Storm see my review here , approximately 25,000 years before the Battle of Yavin Most of the characters featured in Force Storm return, a few minor characters get aprominent role, and there are a few new heroes and one particularly notable new villain.Summary Xesh, former Force Hound of the Rakatan Infinite Empire, has lost much of his memory, but still retains his deep ties to the dark side of the Force Hoping that he can find balance, and despite the objections of the three young Journeyers who have befriended him, the Je daii masters exile him to Bogan, the dark moon of Tython, so he can meditate on the light embodied by its twin moon, Ashla While his new friends and their masters work to unlock the secrets of the Forcesaber, a powerful new weapon, Xesh discovers that he is not alone Daegen Lok, mad Je daii and the only member of the order to be permanently banished to Bogan, sees in Xesh a chance to set long dormant plans in motion And none of them is aware that Xesh s Rakata masters have dispatched a deadly agent to learn his fate and lead them to the planet he sought.Review The Prisoner of Bogan basically takes all of the problems from the first arc in the series, and compounds them There are several strong elements in this story, but it s working so very hard to set up what promises to be an epic conflict ahead, that it forgets to be compelling on its own There is a lot of exposition and set up in this conflict, and yes, consider me fully primed for Force War at this point, but that s no excuse for this to be a limp collection of loose threads.The main trouble is, the comic gets sidetracked in a couple of different ways from what ought to be its core plot, built around the title character Lok is a fascinating and almost sympathetic villain one who is clearly insane, and clearly doing evil, but who has also clearly been wronged, and is not wrong about everything His relationship with Hawk Ryo is one of the dramatic linch pins of the whole thing, and it is extremely effective His Force specialty is unique and scary.But I never felt that I fully understood his plan And yes, that s partially because he s crazy, but if he s crazy enough to have a plan that makes this little sense, I feel like his behavior in general ought to beerratic and less calculated And, after all of the work setting up and developing him as a character, I felt like he basically just fizzled out at the end, shunted unceremoniously aside to make way for the conflict they re really interested in getting to It made him seem like filler, and he deserved better than that.There s also a major subplot involving a holocron from an ancient alien race that just stuck out like a sore thumb It brought to the fore how little sense the whole origin of the Je daii flashback from the first arc really made, and it was a completely irrelevant distraction from everything else that happened in the story The whole sequence couldn t have beencontrived than it was Tasha Ryo, a mere journeyer is somehow randomly able to activate a holocron that a master has studied for ages with no success, just by touching it And it handily contains a recording that can do a plot dump to bring the Je daii conveniently up to speed in time for the Rakata invasion that is clearly coming up Clumsy And it buried Tasha, one of the three main heroes from the last arc, completely out of the action One other interesting character didn t get their full due in this comic was Trill, a minor character introduced only briefly in Force Storm She gets a much richer background story this time around, and the whole comic seems to be building her up to a major confrontation and display of her obviously considerable powers, but then it just never happens Onepiece of actual good material that they re saving for the next arc.Basically, while it definitely has its moments, and the art is a great as in the last comic, The Prisoner of Bogan feels like the laziest middle chapter ever, and is all thefrustrating when there are still several months to wait for the completion of the next series.C

    I enjoyed it slightly better than the previous instalment, it felt a bit less standard and the story was fleshed out a bitthough still not that memorable Once again the comic is quite entertaining and has nice artwork, but I feel this volume is mostly used as build up for the final volume It doesn t stand that great on its own This doesn t necessarily have to be a problem, but considering it s over 100 pages it could at the least already have a little bit of pay off Actual rating wou I enjoyed it slightly better than the previous instalment, it felt a bit less standard and the story was fleshed out a bitthough still not that memorable Once again the comic is quite entertaining and has nice artwork, but I feel this volume is mostly used as build up for the final volume It doesn t stand that great on its own This doesn t necessarily have to be a problem, but considering it s over 100 pages it could at the least already have a little bit of pay off Actual rating would again be 3.25 5 stars

    I am not sure if I liked it or not The overall story was a tad better then the first volume and the art work still good, but it seemed like much of the beginning and other parts were devoted to rehashing what was done in the 1st volume It was kind of like, well if you want to know what happened read the first one And it seemed a little overkill on the narrative You don t need to spell everything out.
