    This delivers everything one could want in a Star Wars adventure. If you like the Jedi, the Sith, bounty hunters, aliens, and lots of action, you're going to love this. The only thing that could make this better would be if Marvel were to state that all the talent were locked down for the next decade on this series. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Darth Maul does some good stuff as it gets moving along into the action but I'm still waiting for that killer moment where it feels like the journey is worth it. The last couple of pages here hint at it and gets us closer to it but it really needs to stick the landing in the next and final issue with Maul and Eldra. I do wish Bane and the others had better roles here but there's only so much space and I'm not sure Bunn quite has Bane's voice, for example. Luke Ross does some great stuff here overall in capturing so many different types of species that are moving about while making sure that Maul and Eldra are given the most attention in their action scenes. A solid issue that has me hopeful for a strong ending that may read better as a whole than in individual installments. Read Full Review

    Darth Maul #4 does an amazing job of setting up this mini-series' finale, with the fast pace and intense dialogue generating tremendous atmosphere throughout. The creative team also continue to tease a revolt from Maul's bounty hunter entourage, with the character development as a whole being a huge positive in this narrative. Read Full Review

    The book still lacks a bit of the fine-tuned, cinematic quality of Marvel's best Star Wars comics, but at least there's been a marked improvement over the early chapters. Read Full Review
