Connor | Darth Maul - Death Sentence (Spoilers)


Hi, my name is Connor and I'm a geek. I'm a huge fan of Star Wars, various animated series and computers. My love for Star Wars is astronomical, and that's evident in the fact that I have read all of the expanded universe material (Boo to Disney for decannonising it!). I even have Storm Trooper cushions in my living room and they look awesome bloody awesome!

So when Elyse and I were asked if we wanted to review something from Speedy Hen I jumped at the chance. You see Speedy Hen sell books, Dvd's, CDS and graphic comics! Yep I’m a sucker for a magazine type book with cartoons in them. I find I easily get drawn in by the imagery and the story and in times of high stress, (which is pretty common with us people juggling lifes many problems) it’s sometimes good to revert back to your inner child, you know, as a form of stress relief.

What did I pick?

I picked the graphic novel "Darth Maul: Death Sentence" which is made up of a 4 part comic miniseries by the same name.



What is it about?

This graphic novel follows the exploits of Darth Maul and his brother, Savage Opress and how one insanely rich mining magnate's bounty has put a hold on their rampage through the Outer Rim worlds.  How will they over come this roadblock? And will they be able to continue on their path of destruction?

If you aren't up to date with the whole Star Wars story then you will probably be asking yourself "Wait I thought he was killed in the Phantom Menace?" Well, he survived that horrible hemicorporectomy that Obi Wan Kenobi performed on him and he is now fully kitted out with a prosthetic lower half! He looks even more bad ass now than he did before.

This graphics novel is a follow up to the events in season 4, of the animated TV show Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and after the events in Star Wars: The Clone Wars - The Sith Hunters. In short, it's between the Star Wars: Episode II and Episode III movies.

Would I recommend?

If you are a fan of all things Star Wars, then by all means pick it up and check it out. If you have only seen the movies, then you might want to look in to some of the expanded media. Overall, the art work is great, the story is great and the cover art will draw you in!

Even if you aren't into Star Wars, you may well find something on the Speedy Hen website that takes your fancy. Like I said before, their array of titles is very expansive and finding something that you enjoy should not be a problem!
