A mysterious man wakes up on a foreign planet, with no idea who he is, where he is from, or what he is doing there. All he knows is that everyone is trying to kill him. Enter Grahrk , devilish self-proclaimed Villie who is suspiciously eager to help him. With little choice but to accept the stranger’s offer, the two forge a tentative alliance in hopes of getting out alive. It is at this time the man is informed he is a Jedi, possibly gone rogue, a revelation that only leads to further, and more ominous questions – such as what has happened to the Padawan accompanying him?

Originally, I had no plans to read a comic. I have dabbled in the comic genre to the point that I have watched a few of the movies, and then nod my head in feigned agreement when friends discuss the actual series; So when my roommate suggested I read this particular comic, I was a bit skeptical. Never have I been more wrong. It was and is amazing! It had action, intrigue, betrayal, and humor. Really, what more could I ask for? The dialog was well written, the illustrations high quality, and being a story in the Star Wars universe, there is a great deal of diversity in the characters. My biggest disappointment while reading this is that my roommate does not have the second book in this story arc. I highly recommend reading this book, and give it a rating of 5 pages
