    All the Sith are in play and the Jedi don't have a clue what's going on. This is the perfect Star Wars premise carried out in fun fashion. Read Full Review

    Next issue is the end of this story arc, and it still seems like there are too many loose ends to tie up. But that's what happens when a show gets cancelled mid-production. Not everything can be nicely tied off. We just have to be content with what we can get, and I hope the end of this arc is as satisfying as the rest of it has been. Read Full Review

    The third issue of Son of Dathomir was the best yet, including a nice surprise when it comes to Darth Maul's history and many strong character moments. Read Full Review

    Star Wars Darth Maul: Son Of Dathomir #3 is an entertaining issue in the context of the series, and the inclusion of the Jedi makes the story slightly more complex and that works if it's connected to Sidious's original plan. However the focus on Count Dooku when the action started took away from the sequence for me as the matter was already decided before even started. Still, this series is enjoyable for what it is and since the plot has become more complex with the Jedi the potential story developments become more intriguing. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Jul 14, 2014

    There's really not much else to say about Star Wars: Darth Maul Son of Dathomir for this wrap up; the action is well drawn and engaging, everyone is afforded a fair amount of screen time, there's a solid balance between high stakes action and fighting, and a good job is done drawing in the series core focus of the secret war between Palpatine and Talzin. If I had to make a few complaints it'd be that the Jedis feel a little underpowered and clone trooper Cody could've used a bigger moment but in the end this is Darth Maul's story so the choices they made in that respect make sense. On the whole Star Wars: Darth Maul is just a very fun, very solid Star Wars comic, recommended. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis Jul 16, 2014

    Much of the credit for that goes to artist Juan Frigeri, who brilliantly brings each page to life. Let's hope that writer Jeremy Barlow can find more smart and inventive ways to give us those type of scenes as the series comes to a close. Read Full Review
