Creative Team: Writer: Jeremy Barlow Illustrator: Juan Frigeri MAUL EXTRAVAGANZA If you’re fan of the Star Wars character of Darth Maul, this is a TPB that you must have! Not only features a storyarc from the CGI Animated TV series Clone Wars, that due the bought of Disney of Lucasfilms, the said animated series was abrubtly concluded with still at least four storyarcs already written and/or development, therefore, this comic book miniseries is totally of the new Expanded Universe Canon… …but also, you have a complete art gallery of the comic book covers (including variants) that were published orinally by Dark Horse Comics, in which Darth Maul appears. MAUL, GODFATHER People thought that have watched the first and last of Darth Maul on Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace… …but thankfully the quite awesome CGI Animated TV series Clone Wars presented the return of your favorite Zabrak, rising up from a fearful madness, replacing his lost legs (and waist) with cybernetic equivalents, being found by his brother Savage Opress, clashing once again with Obi-Wan Kenobi in lightsaber duel, taking control of Mandalore, and uniting his own criminal organization, “The Shadow Collective” with combined forces of Black Sun, Pyke Syndicate, the Hutt Cartel and Mandalorian warriors (and the secret counsel of Mother Talzin, the Nightsister Queen Witch of Dathomir)… …leading to an epic confrontation with his past master, Darth Sidious… …but hardly Maul’s story ended there, but due that Clone Wars couldn’t be entirely finished, Maul’s saga was still yet to be further developed… …imprisoned, but still having the loyalty of the various factions of the Shadow Collective, Darth Maul will take his personal vendetta against Darth Sidious employing his criminal organization to challenge the Separatist Army commanded by Darth Tyranus and General Grievous… …with the Jedi Order and the Republic Clone Army, right in the middle of the effervescent conflict.

    I had fun reading this story. Should Maul have been resurrected or saved from death? No. But once you accept that he was saved and has metal legs, then the story is good. This takes place after his part in the Clone Wars cartoon, which was a great cartoon. It was so much better than the movies and it explores the universe in a way nothing else has. Maul is trying to kill the emperor and take over the Galaxy himself. He faces off against Dooku and gets the upper hand as well. I wonder if the last I had fun reading this story.

It's Lucas's last chance to put things into Cannon now that Disney owns it. I thought this was fun and pure Star Wars. I like these graphic novels.

    I LOVED THIS. Mother Talzin is another one of my favorite characters in Star Wars. She rivaled Sidious and you'll never convince me otherwise. I LOVED THIS. Mother Talzin is another one of my favorite characters in Star Wars. She rivaled Sidious and you'll never convince me otherwise.

    For those of you that have watched the animated series The Clone Wars: This takes place after the epic episode where Darth Maul and his brother Savage Opress have joined the Black Sun criminal organization with the remnants of the Mandalorians. Just when it looked like Maul would regin supreme, along came Darth Sidious and killed Savage and defeated Maul. The episode ended with Sidious taking Maul away. This is the comic series that answers what ever happened to Darth Maul. I will not give away For those of you that have watched the animated series The Clone Wars: This takes place after the epic episode where Darth Maul and his brother Savage Opress have joined the Black Sun criminal organization with the remnants of the Mandalorians. Just when it looked like Maul would regin supreme, along came Darth Sidious and killed Savage and defeated Maul. The episode ended with Sidious taking Maul away. This is the comic series that answers what ever happened to Darth Maul. I will not give away spoilers- but this is a damn good comic. The individual issue covers are GORGEOUS and artowrk is beautiful. But, it is all about the story. We have Darth Maul, Gen. Grevious, Count Dooku, Nightmother Talzeen and Darth Sidious in an epic fight. Oh yeah the Jedi are involved as well, though peripherally. I am a huge fan of Sidious and loved to see him getting down and dirty. I would say more- but again this one is a great read for a Star Wars fan, so no spoilers. Great fights and an ending to a story that was in the Clone Wars cartoons but never really wrapped up. The whole Dooku-Maul-Nightmother and Dark Lord of the Sith story plays out here.

    I've been restricted from accessing this coveted work for a long time, but now that Marvel has reissued it, I finally got a chance to pick up a copy, read it, and now review it. This comic, much like Christie Golden's novel Dark Disciple, is based on unproduced scripts for a series of episodes that would have been part of the television show had it not been cancelled. It was written by Jeremy Barlow while the star wars license was still under the banner of Dark Horse Comics, and was almost consid I've been restricted from accessing this coveted work for a long time, but now that Marvel has reissued it, I finally got a chance to pick up a copy, read it, and now review it. This comic, much like Christie Golden's novel Dark Disciple, is based on unproduced scripts for a series of episodes that would have been part of the television show had it not been cancelled. It was written by Jeremy Barlow while the star wars license was still under the banner of Dark Horse Comics, and was almost considered non-canon because of that. Lucasfilm reversed the decision because it was based on a storyline that WOULD have been canon had it been aired as part of the TV show. Hence, when the original expanded universe was scrapped from continuity in 2014, this comic joined the 2008 Clone Wars animated movie and TV series as the only surviving star wars content aside from the original 6 films that still mattered going forward. For a long time, this comic was absurdly expensive because it had a limited print run, so it took until late november of this year for me to find a copy when Marvel's reissue of the run made it more accessible. And after a long wait, it didn't disappoint. THE STORY: After Darth Maul's defeat in what in my opinion is the best episode to ever air on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, "The Lawless", Darth Sidious has imprisoned him on Stygeon Prime. After Maul escapes the prison, Sidious and Count Dooku hatch a plan to use him in order to draw out the entity who they see as the true threat: Mother Talzin. Maul regroups with his underworld empire known as the Shadow Collective, and goes to war with the separatists in the hopes of getting to Dooku and especially Sidious to exact his revenge. From there we get a story filled with intrigue, deception, counterdeception, and action. THE BAD: My only problem, and it is fairly minor, is the pacing. I just think the comic moved to fast. While the action was great, I would have liked to see less focus on that and more on the fascinating elements surrounding it- the story and the characters. I feel like the comic doesn't give us a chance to rest from the nonstop action and provide us with some character moments where they mattered. While the characters and story were actually fairly strong, they could have been stronger. Perhaps this is a consequence of being constrained to a comic book format, but I've also seen some other star wars comics like "Lando" or "Tales of the Jedi: Redemption" successfully pull off more of a balance. What the comic DOES have is great, but there are some small things missing. THE GOOD: For what it is, Jeremy Barlow did a great job with what he was working with. The story is epic in the best of ways. It works great as a self contained arc but also as a continuation from previous storylines from The Clone Wars show- not just the 4-episode arc from season 5 detailing Darth Maul's return, but the episodes from seasons 3 and 4 that focus on the Nightsisters and their dynamic with the separatists and the sith. From the perspective of the republic characters that make an appearance like Obi Wan, Mace Windu, and Master Tiplee, the comic does a stellar job building on events that happened to them earlier in the show, such as the Clone Conspiracy arc and the standalone episode addressing Sify Dyas in season 6. Finally, from the point of view of someone who was extremely late to reading this, it works well as a bridge for Maul's character between The Clone Wars and Rebels, and I also loved seeing all the locations from Rebels that showed up in this comic first. The characters are excellent too. Everyone remains consistent with their characterizations in the Clone Wars TV series, whether they be regulars like Dooku, General Grievous, Obi Wan, and especially Maul himself, but also more minor players like Talzin. The characters that are either new or just get more of a spotlight in this comic than they did in the show like the leaders of the Black Sun and the Pikes, or the death watch, end up being fairly compelling as well. The artwork is great, with good looking backgrounds, extremely detailed character designs, and fantastic looking action sequences. This is a comic I would not have a problem going through again in terms of visuals. THE CONCLUSION: While I think Son of Dathomir missed its chance to be a truly masterful storyline because it didn't get to be produced as episodes for the TV show, Jeremy Barlow's comic book adaptation of the story arc was well worth holding on too for Lucasfilm's new canon. The story works as a compelling standalone and a continuation from other plot threads from the TV show, the characters are well written, and the visuals are pleasing to the eye. I'm surprised Marvel waited this long to reissue a storyline that is this significant to certain areas of the new continuity, but I am beyond happy that they finally did so in order to let more people experience it.

Fans who wonder what would happen if Maul met General Grievous or Darth Sidious confronting Mother Talzin will like this book. There wasn't much character development as this collection concentrated on the action. This was an enjoyable read but it would have been better served if it had actually ended up airing on the television series. I would have liked to see the action sequences on my television. As of the overall story arc this collection didn't end up adding anything to it and isn't a vital piece to the story.

    As someone who’s just recently begun to finally catch up with “The Clone Wars,” it’s been a real treat to not only be able to experience certain stories that I’ve heard about for literally YEARS now, but also getting to dig into the assorted comics and novels that were released as a means of expanding and deepening the narratives set forth in the show. “Darth Maul – Son of Dathomir” is one such story, and boy howdie, is it a marvel – in fact, I think there’s an argument to be made that it’s amon As someone who’s just recently begun to finally catch up with “The Clone Wars,” it’s been a real treat to not only be able to experience certain stories that I’ve heard about for literally YEARS now, but also getting to dig into the assorted comics and novels that were released as a means of expanding and deepening the narratives set forth in the show. “Darth Maul – Son of Dathomir” is one such story, and boy howdie, is it a marvel – in fact, I think there’s an argument to be made that it’s among the very best chapters from this particular era of “Star Wars.” Skillfully taking the narrative threads left in “The Clone Wars” and building upon – and in some cases, outright concluding - them, writer Jeremy Barlow and artist Juan Frigeri weave a tale that’s every bit as interesting and emotionally engaging as the best of “The Clone Wars” episodes – and in some ways, even more so. Factor in the fact that “Son of Dathomir” also happens to be an integral chapter of Darth Maul’s story – filler, this is not – and it’s not even an argument: if you’re a Star Wars fan, this is an absolute must-read.

    What an epic confrontation, I thought the artwork needed to step up a notch to earn my five stars, but this is an essential read for fans of the Clone Wars and Darth Maul.

    Darth Maul and his Shadow Collective are in disarray from Darth Sidious's actions. Maul's Mandalorians have a plan to save him. Maul's mother intends to help him eradicate Darth Sidious. Son of Danthomir wasn't as good as the previous comics because it got prequel gunk all over it. It has the disappointing General Grevious (who never received a decent introduction to the film series), Count Dooku, and the Droid armies. It just is less fun thinking about what Maul might have been when I have to see Darth Maul and his Shadow Collective are in disarray from Darth Sidious's actions.

It just is less fun thinking about what Maul might have been when I have to see all that garbage. I now realize this comics and it's predecessor directly tie into the Clone Wars TV show. I imagine the creators didn't want the two series storylines to go to waste so it was utilized in comic form. 2.5 out of 5 stars

    The main plot here is surprisingly epic, as Maul slices through several of the major groups in the pre-Revenge of the Sith galactic power balance. The Black Sun and a large group of Mandalorians are under Maul's direction as he tries to end the Clone Wars by beheading both factions (and taking his revenge on Darth Sidious). He manages to connect Dooku and Grievous and other powerful parties and all of this leads to some rather massive battles as all of the groups' strategies collide.

He manages to connect Dooku and Grievous and other powerful parties and all of this leads to some rather massive battles as all of the groups' strategies collide. It's ultimately a cascade of plays and counter-plays that has some surprising twists but ultimately plays out the way it has to because of where it lays in the greater Star Wars Universe. Still, I was pleasantly surprised with the level of conflict and combat on display - this would have made a good Clone Wars mini-series. The back-up stories taken from Star Wars Tales 7-9 aren't nearly as strong, and kind of rubbed me the wrong way (but miniature versions of characters often do). And then it ends with what seems like every comic book cover that had ever featured Maul included to pad out the page count. The main story is worth a read; the rest doesn't serve much purpose.

    Maul is back and he's not coming alone, he's accompanied by an acute mama's boy syndrome and a Mandalorian army! (I think this is how this book is summarized) I read this comic because it is one of the few "leyends" books that you can still call "canon", and why we are leaving? a cover with Darth Maul wielding the Dark Saber was reason enough to buy it, but it was a huge mistake... as they say out there, you should never judge a book by its cover... I'm not sure if the book is setted after Maul is back and he's not coming alone, he's accompanied by an acute mama's boy syndrome and a Mandalorian army!

I'm not sure if the book is setted after Episode I or after Episode II since I really don't know much about what happened to Maul after the confrontation with Qui Gon and Obi Wan…. I understand this comic was originally a script or something like that for Clone Wars and it's very obvious, it feels like a chapter in the series, but it doesn't work as a comic. If you are not a follower of the series or have not seen it, there are many things that you do not understand 100%.

The story here was unproduced, but written and adapted into this comic as a means to continue wrapping up some extra ds I the a story leading up to the conclusion of the Clone Wars resulting in Episode 3 and which is relevant to understanding Star Wars Rebels to a greater extent. I am currently reading through the canon timeline for Star Wars and this was my next stop after completing the Clone Wars animated series. Darth Maul is one of my favorite characters in Star Wars so this one was a series I was really excited to read. I definitely was not disappointed. This is not intended to be an origin story, so anyone thinking that will definitely be confused. This is the second comic about Maul in canon that I'm currently aware of and neither serves as an origin. This comic picks up after Sidious captures Maul, claiming to have plans where Maul will be useful to him in the future. We finally see how. One of the most compelling Hingis for me about Maul is his drive for revenge against all sides where he feels wronged. It's not a drive for power itself entirely but to regain his losses. He was once bloodthirsty just because but now he's bloodthirsty with full purpose, even if I don't entirely agree with the base need for revenge. Seriously though, after being cut in half and losing sanity, being left to die by everyone and dismissed by the master he served for most of his life, it's no wonder he's out to get Obi-Wan and Sidious with no regard to the actual politics of the Clone Wars he finds himself plotting in. The art was nice and the storyline did feel very much like The Clone Wars. The depth of storytelling plot connections, characterization, and battles between different parties are still as strong in comic form as they are in the animated series itself. This is definitely worth reading for Clone Wars fans looking for just a little more story and a little more closure. I think I would have enjoyed it regardless of if I had seen the show, but I definitely enjoy it all the more since I watched the entire series and wouldn't be as in the know about it as I am currently (ex: How is Maul even alive?). That is answered within the show but it's also lightly touched on here (very very lightly). Overall I really enjoyed this one and I would read it again. I'm definitely going to recommend this one to my other Clone Wars loving friends.

    So what happened to Maul after we last saw him in the Clone Wars tv series? This is your answer, sort of. I liked the little arc of Maul coming back when it was on Star Wars, granted he was not a favorite of mine but his little tale was interesting and it tied into the Mandalore which I was more invested in. So, how was this tale which was based off of an uncompleted episode of the clone wars? It was aight.

So, how was this tale which was based off of an uncompleted episode of the clone wars? It was aight. World: Let's talk about the world first, it is Clone Wars, if you are familiar with the show you will feel right at home, a lot of the locals and the world is simply taken out of the show, it feels like the show that's the best part of the world here. However, the art is terrible, okay it's not terrible terrible, but's just very mediocre and looks like a tie in book. The line work is basic and the coloring is just dull and bland, don't get me started on the framing (how can you make a lightsaber battle boring?). Yeah the setting is good, but the art is just, just look at it and look at the show and tell me you are not disappointed. Story: This was an unproduced episode for the show so the 4 issue structure feels like 4 episodes. They are framed the way the show is with little reveals per issue with a lot of action. That would seem like a plus, if you the art and pacing matched the show, the art is just not good and it really affects the story. The tale is fairly interesting and acts as a last act for the Tauzin and Maul story as they were never addressed before the show ended. However the ending much like the rest of the series did leave an opening for more which others would like but for me I think this character needed a proper full ending and yeah I don't need more of Maul. Characters: There is not a lot of character development in this series, sure there is the little reveal that everyone say a mile away but these characters are based off of the show and the writers really assumed you knew who they were when you picked up the book. They are familiar and act and feel the way they did on the show. As I said no big developments here, just playing their parts in this story. I liked the story cause it did bring back a bit of that nostalgia of watching the fantastic series, but the art, man it really did pull me out. Here's hoping the Marvel picking up the Star Wars series in comic book format will mean better artists. Onward to the next book!

    So, I think I've finished my Darth Maul binge - and this is by far the best of the Maul stuff on the printed page (novels and graphic novels).

Created from unfinished plot arc material from the abbreviated sixth series of the Clone Wars CG TV series, Star Wars: Darth Maul - Son of Dathomir fills in some of the blanks between his defeat by Sidious on Mandalore, and his discovery by Ezra Bridger in the subterranean ruins on Malachor. First of all, the story is first-class, telling a more complex Maul tale that naturally is similar in tone and detail to how the character is portrayed in the TV show. All sorts of favourites from Star Wars lore make an appearance: Darth Sidious, Dooku, General Grievous, Mother Talzin, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Mace Windu and Aayla Secura, as well as the remains of Maul's Shadow Collective of Mandalorians (including a helmeted Gar Saxon), Black Sun Falleen and Pyke Syndicate members. The motivations of each are well portrayed, and everything fits together nicely. Secondly, although the dialogue can be clunky at times (and there is an awful lot of "Pew! Pew! Pew!" during the battles), it gets the job done, and any awkwardness is quickly forgotten as the plot moves forward at pace. Finally, the artwork is great - the characters really look like themselves, and it definitely gets the feel of that era of Star Wars just right. I found this graphic novel highly satisfying, and would recommend it to all Prequel-era Star Wars fans, especially those that were left hanging after the cancellation of The Clone Wars TV show.

    It's easy to recommend this story to any Star Wars fan, but also to anyone who enjoys fast-paced and epic battles, planning, subterfuge and a bit of magick on top. I can't help but wonder, since Sidious is fighting Maul, would the Jedi ally themselves with the latter against a common enemy? Foolish question, I know, but then again who is the greater threat?

Is 'the enemy of my enemy is my friend' something that could work here? Darth Sidious wants to be rid of Mother Talzin. Maul is already captured after having built the Shadow Collective, an organization Sidious saw as a threat to his plans, and his brother Savage Opress is dead. (view spoiler)[A couple of Mandalorian warriors break Maul out of Sidious's prison. Sidious sends General Grievous to attack Maul's base and make him think that he is the real target, not Mother Talzin whom he intends to thus draw out in the open. Maul gains the upper hand in the second battle, capturing Grievous and Dooku, with advice from Talzin. The final battle is on Dathomir. While Grievous's defeats Maul's forces, Sidious and Grievous go for Maul and the now-possessed Dooku. Talzin is not strong enough to resist Sidious, so she loses control of Dooku who rejoins Sidious and Grievous. Their combined attack defeats her. Maul barely escapes, but the Shadow Collective is disbanded. (hide spoiler)]

Maul's ideals are very interesting and I'll give the author credit for displaying Sidious' personality exceptionally (as in he doesn't care about Count Dooku - or anyone for that matter - at all). Grievous and Kenobi's appearances also offer consistence and rapture to the story. If you're looking for a good narrative faithful to the Star Wars universe - you have it here! I was already looking forward to read more of the Star Wars new cannon universe and I finish Darth Mauk: Son of Dathomir looking even more forward. Great start!

    Brilliant little book about Darth Maul after the last episode you see him in during the Clone Wars. Very exciting, at some points I had to stop myself for skimming the words as I was so excited to see what was coming up, some pretty strange parts where grevious and dooku were in the same room as that was never in the movies or clone wars(I think?). Good to see some familiar faces in here too. The only bad part wad the ending, I bought this book hoping to find out what happened after the clone wars Brilliant little book about Darth Maul after the last episode you see him in during the Clone Wars.

The only bad part wad the ending, I bought this book hoping to find out what happened after the clone wars but this makes it even more up for question with what happens to him. Not so much a cliff hanger but momore of a "I cant wait to read the next one to find out what happens! Oh, there isnt a next one.. Then.. What happens to him?", I guess it leaves it open for debate what happens to him and possibly more novels in the future?

    It almost seems unfair for me to review this book, because only after reading about an issue and a half did I realize this is meant to be some kind of wrap-up from the Clone Wars TV series (which is why this is even still considered canon in the new, Disney-owned Star Wars Expanded Universe). It feels like about 3/4 of the story is missing here, and that's because, well, it is. There's very little setup explaining who anyone is or why they're doing anything they're doing.

The comic very clearly assumes you watched all of the Clone Wars before reading it, but without ever telling you that you should've done that. Honestly, this makes me wonder why they even bothered making it, since they're already limiting their audience, but whatever. I guess if I ever have time to watch the TV show I'll come back and give this another shot, but as it stands, it's pretty missable. Great art though!

    I have really taken advantage of this new revamp of the Star Wars expanded universe. This comic was one of the first published media in the new canon. This graphic novel is based off of unproduced scripts from the 6th season of The Clone Wars. Darth Maul starts this story escaping from Sidious and Dooku with the help of his Death Watch friends. General Grevious and more of Maul's Shadow Collective allies make appearances in this book. I really enjoyed this book. It felt just like the tv show.

A must read for all Star Wars fans, especially those of the animated series.

It was such a shame to see the show get cancelled. Luckily, the continuation of his arc was adapted into this comic mini-series. Darth Maul comes face to face with General Grievous and Count Dooku, and he does not fall for the ruse of the latter. The confrontations with them, however, are very brief. I was surprised to see that the story did not end with Maul's death, which makes me wonder if there are plans to Darth Maul had one of the best story arcs of the TV series Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

I would be very disappointed if no new content continued this thread. Hopefully this is a transition and not an ending. Sidious says that they have erased Maul's future, but I hope that there is more to see.

    I thought it did a great job with the story. They took an unaired story arc of The Clone Wars, and put it in comic. I thought it was a fast paced read, and had alot of twist and turns. I really like the art. My only problem was it left things open ended. Other than that, it was a pretty fun, and quick read. It's too bad The Clone Wars is cancelled, this would have been amazing seeing this animated. I thought it did a great job with the story.

    Clone Wars story telling at its best! I loved Star Wars Clone Wars and I was disappointed that it ended without wrapping up the story of some of the major characters. This book tells a tale that is revealing and interesting. It also provides some closure to the story of Darth Maul. Though it doesn't provide full closure, it's a great story that left me wanting some more. I look forward to additional stories. Clone Wars story telling at its best!

    This was kind of meh. Darth Maul is a character in Star Wars that I personally don't like and I didn't get to know him more in this comic. This is merely a continuation of his story from Clone Wars, lots of action but little substance. Good enough for a boring afternoon but not all that great. The art is kind of meh too.

    A great story from The Clone Wars. It gives Maul a lot of depth and leaves the reader with a promise of more to come. I thought the art could have been stronger in places.

    Great story and visuals. The greatest tragedy is that these episodes were never produced for TV. Fortunately, this series was a great way to bring fans this new addition to the Clone Wars storyline.

    I genuinely loved reading this comic. I haven't watched 'The Clone Wars', which the storyline of this comic was originally written for, so I wasn't entirely familiar with some of the background characters, but having seen 'Attack of the Clones' I was able to fully enjoy it nonetheless. Seeing Darth Maul go up against Palpatine, Dooku and Grevious was a bit of a 'nerd-gasm' moment and Maul's relationship with these characters, after being replaced by Dooku as Palpatine's apprentice was a lot of f I genuinely loved reading this comic.

The final scene with Maul's mother was a particular highlight and brought a real human side to Maul's character that I haven't seen before. I'll definitely be watching the series on Disney+ when it's launched.

    4-4.5 stars This was really good, it tells what happens to Darth Maul between season 6 of "The Clone Wars" (animated TV series) and season 7 that's coming out now. Unfortunately for Darth Maul, things don't go well for him in this story and he's down (but not out) at the end of this story. 4-4.5 stars This was really good, it tells what happens to Darth Maul between season 6 of "The Clone Wars" (animated TV series) and season 7 that's coming out now.
