Review: Star Wars Dawn of the Jedi #1

Star Wars Dawn of the Jedi is an excellent comic. There is mystery, tragedy, suspense and a sense of adventure. As the title implies, we get to know the beginnings of the Jedi and The Sith. The answer to a long sought mystery in the star wars universe will finally be answered and we get the best seats in the house. I imagine that all of dark horses comics are cannon? Then this rates, very high in the importance scale if you are a big fan like me.

I like how the story flowed.  It is an origin story that is not boring. The pacing used by veteran scribe John ostrander (who, I'm really happy is working regularly in comics again) is outstanding. It's fast paced and gives you the facts straight in quick succession.

The art is on equal terms with the story. Jann Duursema should be more of a superstar considering how long she has been around. Her designs, are incredible and not contrived. Her action and direction, flawless. She should be more famous than she is now as far as I'm concerned.

This joint effort from Ostrander and Duursema is worth all the money you pay for it. I, for one, cannot wait for the next instalment! Pick it up since it reveals very important info for Star Wars fans!
