    Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir is one of the better Star Wars comics released lately, if you can forgive the disappointing end. It would be fantastic if another series about Darth Maul came into existence, but it doesnt appear to be likely. I still wholeheartedly recommend reading the comic. Read Full Review

    Sadly, the issue ended much how one would expect with little surprise and the conflict is much shorter than expected. It's hard to create surprise in a self-contained story like this when we know what the outcome has to be. The story here is still enjoyable for The Clone Wars and Darth Maul fans, but don't expect big surprises from this last issue. Read Full Review

    Star Wars Darth Maul: Son Of Dathomir #4 ends with a satisfying series of events but unsurprising with all things considered. The plans from both sides were completely revealed and they were engrossing. The mercenaries working with Darth Maul were treated dismissively this issue in order to avoid addressing their involvement in a meaningful way, which wouldn't be the first time a matter was simplified. But since the battle between Darth Sidious and Mother Talzin would take center stage, and it would be electrifying, I'm glad the focus was on them and not the peripheral players. So if you've been enjoying this series as a continuation of the animated Clone Wars series or you're a fan of Darth Maul, you won't be disappointed with this issue. Read Full Review

    he third issue of Son of Dathomir remains the high point of this series, delivering the most exciting and intriguing elements. The finale is certainly cool though, while also ends with a bit of a "That's it?" feel, as it underlines that many of these characters and storylines were meant to continue in future episodes of The Clone Wars we'll never get. However, it's also a reminder of what a great world The Clone Wars was able to build up. Fingers crossed we'll get some more closure down the line, in a different Star Wars story... Read Full Review

    Closes out like a typical episode of the series with fun moments but key characters ready to battle again. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Lewis “Daft Vader” Campbell Aug 20, 2014

    This was a fittingly fun end to a very entertaining series. When there are so many Sith Lords plotting, fighting and killing together, one will never be bored. Moreover, a competent script and dazzling art have made it a visual pleasure. Read Full Review

    The very end was a little flat, but it should cause some speculation for what could possibly happen when Episode VII hits theaters next year. Read Full Review
