    Why are the villain issues in this series so much better than the hero installments? This story is an excellent tale of Dooku doing his Master's bidding and having to improvise. The visuals are also good, with me wishing they would join with the writer on a monthly series. For those craving Sith action and intrigue, this is a delightfully dark tale for you! Read Full Review

    Beyond my expectations, Jody Houser delivered a Count Dooku story that I actually liked. I struggled with the character in the films and the TV series " partially because of the terrible name that should never have been approved " but I like the concept of it and the whole Christopher Lee element. Those are brought to life with an engaging single-issue story in a way that some of the others haven't been able to achieve. Houser's script provides for a lot going on with great pacing while Ross just gives us an enticing look at Sullust, time with Jaz'kin, and a combat-fluid Dooku that looked badass. More, please.

    I came away from this issue respecting Count Dooku far more than I had prior. He's a silent but deadly sort of villain who is calculating, but also ruthless. The fact of the matter is I had no care for this character, but now I'll be digging into wiki's to learn much more. Read Full Review

    This book manages to deliver fans both exciting action and complex diplomatic negotiations, so, while it's not a must-read for all Star Wars fans, it will expand upon a formidable foe that will give you a new appreciation for his motivations in the prequel films. Read Full Review

    Count Dooku #1 is another fantastic one-shot in what has quickly become my favorite Star Wars series running. It's a little out of step with the other Sith and Jedi stories in Age of Republic and loses the theme, but it offers a glimpse of the Count as an agent of the Emperor " happy to highlight his deftness in diplomacy and double-crossing as much as his skill with a lightsaber.
