"Threat of Peace" unveils a galaxy on the brink of destruction three hundred years after the events of Knights of the Old Republic!

For decades, the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire have been at war-the Sith have gained control of the Outer Rim, but their efforts to penetrate the Core Worlds have so far been thwarted. Now, representatives from both sides attempt to negotiate a peace treaty-but deception by the Sith puts the Jedi in an unfortunate position.

The release of The Old Republic promises to be a Star Wars event of the highest order!

    Whatever the case, the issue simply doesn't do enough to make me care about the characters and the latest galactic conflict raging about. With the storyline already a third of the way over, I find myself wishing Chestney had selected one or two plotlines and focused on those exclusively. The promise is that this cast will factor into the events of the game, rewarding those who read the comic in due time. Perhaps that will allow me to look back more fondly on "The Threat of Peace" two years down the road. It does nothing for me at present. I'm disappointed to see a Star Wars comic that doesn't make even adequate use of its very promising setting, and I hope future Old Republic-related projects will fare better. Read Full Review

    The issue jumps all over the place and feels like it all by itself could have been several books. Lots of action but almost no characterization. Though it still is entertaining.
