    The creators have found the balance often lacking in most Star Wars products. They've managed to create a comic that reads as a dangerous tale of revenge, while maintaining an all-ages appropriate tone. Read Full Review

    This issue introduces you to the characters, throws the plot out there and gives you plenty of action to get you ready for the next issue. This is shaping up to be a terrific series. I can't wait for the next issue to drop. Read Full Review

    Death Sentence is yet another fun travel through the Star Wars universe provided by the good people at Dark Horse comics. While all of the Star Wars comics over the years have been pretty solid, it is even more rewarding to see a very good comic that is also set in the sometimes shaky realm of the prequels. Basically, if you are looking for a good read, I recommend Death Sentence to Star Wars and comic fans alike. Read Full Review

    Having steered away from the Star Wars comics, its a real treat to be reading them again and what better way than to start with a Darth Maul comic. I didnt even know he was still alive, but then again its a comic, characters always come back, even in Star Wars. From Dark Horse Comics. Read Full Review

    Darth Maul- Death Sentence 1 works hard to bring its various characters onto the game board with Maul and his brother discovering that some incredibly brave or hopelessly foolish individual has placed a bounty on their heads large enough that Maul feels he needs address the issue immediately. The book has a nice sense of action and humor though there is a sizable amount of exposition as well, not all of which feels compelling at this early juncture. With some fabulous Sith masters in play along with some Jedi the promise of even more action hangs in the air and this volume gives a bit of hope that there may be a good deal of material to serve as payoff ahead.

    In all, Death Sentence is a nice surprise for Darth Maul fans, and the first issue should particularly satisfy fans of the TV show until it finally returns in the fall. Read Full Review

    "Star Wars: Darth Maul -- Death Sentence" #1 is another strong debut from Dark Horse, showcasing yet another fan favorite character. As is the case for Boba Fett in the original trilogy, Darth Maul didn't have a great deal of screentime, but he caught the imagination of Star Wars fans and expanded universe creators. Now, returned to the battlefields during the height of the Clone Wars, Darth Maul has a chance to shine under the reddish glow of his lightsaber and the creative endeavors of Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo.

    The book is not perfect and really any time that the Maul brothers aren’t on the page you’ll probably get bored and wonder why you have to follow these unremarkable Jedi, but it was a fun read with great action. I’m definitely interested in seeing Darth fuck some more people up and really that would be the only reason I stopped back by… not for some bounty/mining bullshit. If you’re like me and have a hard time finding Star Wars comics that you enjoy then check this book out, it’s pretty good. Read Full Review
