The newest issue in the Marvel Age of Republic series was released today. Following last week’s Qui-Gon Jinn issue, we get a story about the Sith Zabrak that ended that Jedi’s physical life: Darth Maul.
Age of Republic – Darth Maul #1 takes place prior to The Phantom Menace, serving as an epilogue to Cullen Bunn’s 2012 Darth Maul mini-series.
Maul, Sith apprentice to Darth Sidious, strains at his master’s leash anxiously waiting for his chance to destroy the Jedi Order. Sidious demands patience, waiting for his own secret plans to fall into place.
I won’t spoil the issue for you, but I truly loved seeing how disgusted Maul appeared when he found himself wearing Jedi robes.
Jody Houser writes a solid story, and Luke Ross brings Darth Maul to life in the same amazing manner he did in the Bunn series of yore.
