Je n'aime pas dans les vieux films américains quand les conducteurs ne regardent pas la route. Et de ratage en ratage, on s'habitue à ne jamais dépasser le stade du brouillon. La vie n'est que l'interminable répétition d'une représentation qui n'aura jamais lieu.

*So, this section of Part Four of Jedi vs. Sith comes directly before the section on Sith Weapons that we looked at last time.

*Palpatine introduces this section with a brief paragraph about Naga Sadow and then Sadow speaks for about half a page. 

*Okay, you know how I said Komok-Da was badass?  Well, Komok-Da ain’t got nothin’ on Naga Sadow.  Check out this intro:

*Ask me of my heritage and I shall tell you.  Ask me of my ambitions and you shall know them.  Ask me for my hand in battle and I shall likely lend you both.  But ask me the secrets of Sith alchemy and I would ask you for three measures of blood: one from a person you love, one from a person you hate and one from yourself.

*A little later, he says: “If you . . . are merely a spy or pretender to Sith knowledge, may my words reach out to tear your eyes and tongue from your head and may you drown in your loved one’s blood while your enemies look upon your wretched form and laugh.”

*You know, this is way better than those FBI warnings on videos.

*So, then Sadow tells us what we can do with Sith alchemy, but then Palpatine breaks in to comment that Sadow was far too generous with his knowledge.  Palpatine, unlike Sadow, isn’t about to share all his secrets.

*Thus we actually find out nothing about Sith alchemy in this section.  Is that lame or brilliant?  I say brilliant; this section is really just an excuse to write in Sadow’s pompous, grandiose voice and it works really well.  Only about three fourths of a page all together, but fun.

*** out of **** stars.

*Next time, our first comic series and the very first review I wrote in this series, some five years ago; Next time, The Golden Age of the Sith!
