Zayne Carrick and his crewmates Jarael, Slyssk, and the Mandalorian Rohlan investigate a pleasure cruise gone wrong!

Something horrible has happened aboard the Chancellor Fillorean; the former luxury ship now drifts aimlessly in a space nebula. Upon boarding the ghost ship, a host of asphyxiated passengers and two lone survivors -- a tiny alien and his fierce droid bodyguard -- are all that are found. Zayne and his friends must solve the mystery and find what has been causing the tragic and disturbing deaths -- before they also become victims.

    And I have to say, a decent set of pencils really makes all the difference with KOTOR. Even if I found the art to be technically proficient in past reviews, the general style of this series always strikes me as wrong. Star Wars needs a certain level of grit and realism in its visuals, otherwise it's not really Star Wars at all. Dean Zachary fulfills this need nicely. The characters are rendered in a far more realistic manner than usual. The heavy use of shadows works well with the issue's general sense of foreboding. All in all, I really hope to see more work from Zachary on this series. Issue #38 proves there's life o be had with KOTOR, but only when the various pieces work with in tandem and not against each other. Read Full Review
