    The next issue is really going to decide if this is a good series or a mediocre one. This is all setup, and the setup is good enough to bait the hook and get my interest. Now we have to see if they can keep it going. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza May 19, 2011

    This is a fine addition to the "Star Wars" brand under the Dark Horse stable. With Jinn's fate prescribed in "The Phantom Menace," Allie is able to give the character a chance to live a little, to breathe, and to show us why he is such a lauded Jedi. Read Full Review

    This series and arc is off to a good start. If you have been clamoring for more comic books set before the Clone Wars then you will not be disappointed. This book contains action, tension, confrontation and a good plot opening, which add up to an entertaining read. I definitely recommend checking this book out. Read Full Review

    There's some potential for this to be a worthwhile read, but it all depends on whether Allie can make me invest in Xanatos' struggle. At this point it's sheer curiosity that will keep me around to discover where these events lead. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 24, 2011

    This new series from writer Scott Allie and artist Mahmud Asrar will focus on Qui-Gon Jinn's years working on the Outer Rim long before he would take on a padawan named Obi-Wan Kenobi. The first issue sets up the characters and situations which will play an integral part in the first five-issue story arc, but it doesn't do much more than that. I also found Asrar's art a bit sloppy in places. The close-ups of each character are very detailed and you can tell why he was chosen for the project, but the larger shots seem rushed and a little blurry. Hit-and-Miss. Read Full Review
