Emissaries & Assassins (Star Wars Legends/Dark Horse Omnibus)
Whew. There was a lot of content in this omnibus. To start with, there were some Episode I-specific tales that I enjoyed, much to my surprise, especially given that one was a summary of events by Obi-Wan.
The bulk of this collection - making the middle section quite beefy - were stories involving the Jedi Council. This is where you'll get introduced to Legends icons A'Sharad Hett and Quinlan Vos (what a boss - and in my opinion, his retconned "appearance" in The Phantom Menace doesn't count as an intro). Unfortunately, while these stories were interesting, they weren't particularly compelling. Ki-Adi-Mundi... I've never seen that poor dude written well in any comic. As for the Dark Woman, I can't say I'm impressed. Maybe I'd actually like her if she was given more of a personality? Something beyond "my training methods are dark but totallllllyyy don't create Dark Jedi and Sith Lords"? lol
The good news is that the omnibus finished on a very strong note; the Jango Fett comic was exceptional and may be one the greatest visual stories I've ever encountered in the Legends canon. So if you were wondering, this is why my rating is still so high.
Alyce Caswell, when she isn't drinking her way through a giant pot of tea, can be found dabbling in multiple genres and writing forms. She has self-published several titles in her space opera family saga, which is divided into two series: The Galactic Pantheon and The Pantheon War. Her most recent book is The Shadow of the Gods.
