So, as weird as it sounded to have Star Wars stories set 35,000 years before the movies, I actually really, really loved Into the Void, the Dawn of the Jedi novel. This comic series doesn't have the same weird, pagan, hyperviolent, often edging into horror tone as that novel, however. The Jedi don't really seem that different from the Jedi in the movies, which is probably a good thing for the casual fan. But if they aren't going to be radically different, why go back tens of thousands of years? The story isn't bad, however, and the characters are pretty good. I like the three main characters, who are all Jedi students; they're very different in personality and yet thrown together by circumstances and I liked the way they stayed true to their own characters and threw sparks off of each other. And this book ends with a nice tease from a very mysterious character that I'm genuinely curious about. This isn't as good as the novel by a long way, but I'm still interested in seeing where the series goes. It's good enough. Recommended if you're interested. 3 stars.
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.
