Annihilation (Star Wars Legends)
Blood of the Empire (The Old Republic Vol 1)
I'll start with the usual "I haven't played any of the games" disclaimer. I found this to be a pretty decent if unremarkable tale that offered no real surprises, because it features Sith being...well, Sith. Teneb Kel is the standard copy-and-paste Sith. I was happy to see him succeed, however.
Threat of Peace (The Old Republic Vol 2)
What a mess! Disjointed to the point of being confusing... never lingering long enough in one place for me to connect to any of the characters (or give a damn about them)... I really wish I could claw back the time I lost while reading this TPB and it wasn't even that long!
Also, why the heck did the artist literally draw the Sydney Harbour Bridge into the background of one panel? It was horribly jarring.
The Lost Suns (The Old Republic Vol 3)
This is the first TPB of the series that actually gave me a real sense of the setting used in the video games - and the first competently executed story (the previous TPBs...yikes). I became quite fond of Theron Shan and his companions while reading these pages. I'm not sad that I finished a lacklustre series, but at least it ended on a strong note.
