    Star Wars Legends Project #73 Background Republic Emissaries to Malastare was released in 6 issues from December 1999 to May 2000 The trade paperback came out in September of 2001 It was written by Timothy Truman and drawn by Tom Lyle Jan Duursema and John Nadeau Truman wrote a number of issues in the Republic series as well as a ton of Conan comics among a variety of other work Lyle did the first four issues of this storyline his only Star Wars work He is best known for his work with DC on Starman and Robin and for his work with Marvel on Spider Man Duursema in addition to working on most of the issues of Republic including part of 4 in this run also drew almost the entirety of the Legacy series and all of the Dawn of the Jedi series and various other things She has also drawn for a number of different DC and Marvel series particularly X Men Nadeau did the 5th and 6th issues of this series He also drew for 4 of the Rogue Suadron storylines and various other things Almost all of his comic work has been Star Wars Emissaries to Malastare is set not long after Star Wars Outlander Star Wars my review 32 years before the Battle of Yavin Ki Adi Mundi still features heavily along with his new padawan the Tusken A'Sharad Hett However partway through Jedi Master Mace Windu takes center stage Along for the ride are Adi Gallia Even Piell Plo Koon Yaddle and Depa Billaba The story also features several of the podracers from the Boonta Eve Classic in The Phantom Menace most notably Sebulba introduces uinlan Vos and reintroduces the Devaronian scoundrel Vilmarh Grahrk Most of the story takes place on Malastare and Nar ShaddaaSummary After a long and bitter struggle the terrorists of the Red Iaro have suggested an interest in making peace with the rulers of Lannik home planet of Jedi Master Even Piell The Gran Protectorate has offered Malastare as a neutral ground for the peace talks and newly elected Chancellor Palpatine has asked that the Jedi Council preside over the sensitive proceedings The Jedi arrive to find the planet crowded with fans anxious to attend a major podrace and soon suspect that the Gran as usual have ulterior motives that could threaten the offer of peace and maybe the Jedi themselvesReview Well this story started off promisingly enough with some great interaction between Ki and A'Sharad as they continue his training at the Jedi Temple and even a pretty fun cameo from new padawan Anakin Skywalker when the topic of podracing first comes up It takes awhile to really get going and there's some general weirdness but I did not expect the slow painful slide into absurdity that happened in the final halfThat wouldn't really matter if I liked the characters There are a lot a lot of characters in this story that I really want to like but I feel like I'm doing all of the work Maybe it's because there are just too many of them but again the Jedi end up feeling bland and flat and kind of annoying with their dime store philosophizing Tossing in some out of character uips every few pages just isn't enough to dilute that or make them fun I still really like A'Sharad as a character and he's probably the best character here but he's not very important to the main goings on of this particular story and so he's only really developed so far I hope to see of him soonUnfortunately since the really lousy stuff happens close to the end I don't want to go into a huge amount of detail about it There's a lot of nonsensical stuff happening some of which is outright self contradictory within the story itself A few of these things are entertaining enough that it's not a big deal Like when the Jedi fly through the middle of the ongoing podrace and end up tangling with Sebulba But there are some real head scratchers here too like why the Jedi diplomats are so incredibly bad at diplomacy And why did the Jedi send one lone Knight to stop an army of Tusken Raiders in the last story but they send half of the council to handle peace negotiations in neutral territory here? I do make some effort not to think too hard about these things although I resent it but it's just impossible not to notice some thingsWhere the whole thing really slides into incoherence though is when it pivots in probably the clumsiest transition I've ever seen into a totally different story for the last 2 issues while trying to pretend like it's really a continuation of the previous story even though it leaves that whole business completely dangling to follow up on an obvious red herring And then the same thing happens at the conclusion of that arc too The Jedi seem to think they've resolved something or figured things out when it's totally obvious they haven't done anything of the kind they still have no idea what's going on and the real bad guys that they were after are still very much around Even the bad guys they catch the apparently don't bother to deal with It's baffling and really annoyingD

    Pretty dull stuff Incoherent wishy wash mess with no sense of focus or dialogue Some nice art in the pod race seuences but never really got my pulse racing The only part I liked was the foreshadowing of uinlan Vos in future storylines and that was about one page Extra star because the art is of a decent uality Timothy Truman just doesn't have the heart for Star Wars it seems

  4. Julie Julie says:

    Once again they are playing musical artists and some are better than others The faces in particular can be inconsistent and inaccurate It was nice spreading the action to of the Jedi Council but overall the story was just okay I'm still amazed at how hard they are pushing the Jedi's ties to their homeworlds Also occasionally they will go for a joke I just can't believe they made First it was Ki Adi Mundi being worried about people making fun of his head and now it's Depa Billaba making a bald joke about Mace Windu Side note I love Depa Billaba Also why can't Mace Windu say the name of his home planet??It was odd that the main storyline wrapped up in 4 issues and then the last 2 were z completely different story I'm looking forward to the next story which focuses on uinlan Vos


  5. Lauren Kell Lauren Kell says:

    I'm confused as to why half of the Jedi Council was needed to help with these negotiations And the last two installments didn't even feel properly connected to the rest of the story line Plus like we even needed proof that the Jedi Order did absolutely fuck all to address slavery in the galaxy They came across at least two different sets of slaves in this arc alone that were just ignoredaccepted as business as usual rather than freed and helped to reintegrate All in all not a particularly impressive story arc

    EU Comics #3In this arc of Dark Horse's Star Wars the Jedi are off to Malastare The plot isn't the best but the art is great and it includes the very thing that introduced me to Star Wars in the first place podracingIt's fun to see Sebulba Aldar Beedo Teemto and all those characters I grew up with playing the video game In fact for me the Jedi story is probably the weakest part of this arc

    December 13 2019 When I set out to reread this series hoping to find a solid portrayal of what the Jedi actually did before the Clone Wars this was the main storyline I had in mind And it basically answered my uestion the Jedi go to Malastare to arbite a peace deal between a planetary monarchy and a rebel faction That's the sort of thing they normally do Except of course that's a pretty misleading depiction of what actually happens in this series Negotiation is here as it is in The Phantom Menace a mere fig leaf for going to a place and waiting for the bad guys to try to kill you thus revealing their criminal conspiracy doing some crazy acrobatics then arresting the leaders and likely murdering the henchmen This volume is no different than the previous two where every uestion of ethical or political complexity is preempted by the reveal that all of the uestionable forces in the story are in malicious cahoots No uestions are needed only uick enough reflexes to survive the dastardly plot and catch the bad guys It's such a shame Why throw away a perfectly good political storyline one that could challenge the Jedi in various ways? Even Piell's history with the Red Iaro and his opinions on the prince A'Sharad's blunt Tusken approach and the recent destruction of his community by a similar conspiracy Ki's experience protecting his homeworld from a similar conspiracy and what he learned from it it's all here Why aren't we using any of it?? Also there's the fairly off putting fact that the Jedi as outside arbiters simply accept the epithet terrorists for the Red Iaro before doing any of their own investigation into the situation In Star Wars you're really gonna act like you can take that for granted?Then there's the weird issue I noted before where the last two issues of 6 feel like a completely different arc I mean Republic is already on a sort of rolling POV shifting deal picking up characters and plot elements from one series and showing them from new angles in the next Why is this part of the same arc? Not that it makes a huge difference either way just strange That second arc also explicitly tells us that Jedi are basically undercover investigators empowered to enforce Republic law even outside Republic borders so that's interesting and again somewhat dubious I still have a soft spot for this and for Republic in general just because I love seeing the Jedi council hanging out as monks and friends They have a lovely vibe There are moments of downtime here before the action kicks in that are good and nice The problem is that they feel so disconnected from the story and thus become superficial in their own right while the story feels trite and tedious without their contribution August 21 2017 2 stars More bland schemes revealed too soon for the sake of an action scene Also oddly paced with only a four issue arc and then a two issue bit tacked on for Mace and Depa to track down some animal smugglers on Nar Shaddaa which in practice accomplishes nothing but creating a loose narrative torch passing to the next arc


  9. Shawn Fairweather Shawn Fairweather says:

    This TPB takes over where Outlander leaves off Once again for fans of the Tusken Raiders will enjoy this Also this gives a bit depth to the period between Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones Artwork is definitely an added bonus


  10. Ruth Ruth says:

    Very well written with great illustrations It was nice to see some of the lesser known Jedi in action I didn't realize some Jedi carried red sabers so that was some cool new information for meThe action and intrigue in this graphic novel were so good I was disappointed when it ended I'm looking forward to reading about several of the characters Depa Billaba and uinlan Vos are two I really enjoyed seeing although uinlan's appearance was very brief I'm also hoping to learn who the daughter of Aunuanna the Alewoman isOver all this is a fun action packed story and a must read for any true Star Wars fan
