    One thought on “Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi, Volume 1: Force Storm”

    1. If my research is correct, this is the earliest novel in the Star Wars timeline. However, I thought I had read the earliest in the timeline already and then discovered this one a few weeks ago. How long until I find another one that took place before this!?I enjoyed this one, it was okay. Not great, not bad, just okay. The art was not my favorite and I felt like the faces were a little off at times (I may be spoiled, though, because I have read some graphic novels lately with pretty great artwor [...]

    2. I was quite looking forwards to this series. I loved KOTOR, so believe me I got excited at the prospect of seeing the Rakatan Infinite Empire at its height, and throughout the Expanded Universe there have always been these snippets of information – a line here, a paragraph there – of the origins of the Jedi on Tython. Whilst I loved the original trilogy, the Expanded Universe has been somewhat hit and miss – and I say that as someone who avidly collected the EU books as a teen. There were [...]

    3. What the fuck was that?! This isn't even prequel-level storytelling, this is so much worse! A ton of useless and boring characters doing some random shit which is impossible to follow, and all of that is between pages upon pages of long, dry, 60's style narration, with equally terrible dialogue. And John Ostrander is considered one of the best writers of the old Star Wars EU comics? No way. This book is absolute garbage!The art was nice, but who cares — I would never recommend this incomprehen [...]

    4. I was very intrigued by the premise of this series. Set tens of thousands of years before A New Hope, the setup and series description indicates that this a story of the foundation of the Jedi and the discovery of the Force. This is meant to be a time before hyperspace travel, before lightsabers, before the Republic, etc. Also, John Ostrander has a knack for expanding the mythology of the Star Wars Universe without feeling boring or like he's teaching a history lesson. This had to be great, righ [...]

    5. I liked the first three issues better than the last two. The last one in particular was somewhat of a let-down. It's obvious that this is going to be a much longer series, but the conclusion was underwhelming and a littlering.My biggest problem happens to be personified in one character: Shae Koda.What the flying kriff is with her pants? Who thought it would be good to give her harem pants with the hip sides cut out so you can see her boy shorts? How are people ever going to give respect to comi [...]

    6. This super writing duo were bound to slip at some point. If this can be seen as a slip after the heights of Legacy, well, it still represents great comic writing that you can pick up and eat up in one session and fill completely satisfied with. My biggest gripe here was that Ostrander hasn't created a universe that I feel fundamentally interested in or thrown in any characters that really made me excited to know them more. It was, however, pretty cool to see the Infinite Empire that we've all he [...]

    7. I'm not a big Star Wars fan beyond the original three movies and Timothy Zahn's Thrawn books but this is a well drawn and reasonably interesting look at the origins of the Jedi.

    8. Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi is a bit of an ambitious idea for a comic book series from Dark Horse Comics and Lucasfilm. For years now, the various Star Wars “guides” have always included snippets about the civilizations that existed before the Old Republic, and the beginnings of the Jedi Order. It was always just a few pages or paragraphs, here or there, with tantalizing information.Now, with this series, these brief mentions are being expanded, and the story of the pre-cursors of the Republ [...]

    9. I'm a big Star Wars fan. I'm not cool enough to own my own lightsaber or have all the movies in collector's edition format or even have Star Wars bobbleheads, but I have loved the series ever since I was a little kid. I loved the idea of being a Jedi and bringing intergalactic peace. And you get a lightsaber! When I saw this comic on NetGalley, I jumped at the chance to read it. I devoured it in the course of one night and one morning, and I looooved it.It was fascinating to get to see the begin [...]

    10. Чуть ранее Into the Void впечатлила настолько, что было решено при первой же возможности познакомиться и с графической компонентой эры. И сейчас чувствую я себя примерно так же, как при просмотре Rebels после A New Dawn. Ощущение, что авторы комикса писали для детей, которым надо разжевы [...]

    11. The origins of the Force, and the modern Jedi are revealed here, although in a convoluted way. The story goes from an historical account, to a Master and his apprentices, then jumps across the galaxy to Tatooine, a familiar planet, although lush with life. Here, on a familiar-named planet, we encounter another race, enslaving the planet through the assistance of a hooded creature referred to as a "Force Hound". As the story bounces back and forth a bit, we get a glimpse of the possible origins o [...]

    12. The other week I picked up one of the Tales of the Jedi omnibuses from the library, on a whim, and it's got me fully drawn back into the Star Wars universe. As part of that I've decided to become more familiar with the era before the films, as it's something I've been mostly ignorant about. This volume, set 25,000 years before the saga of the Skywalkers, is about as far back as you can go.This volume is mostly just introduction, but at this point I almost feel like that's expected from a mainstr [...]

    13. I am typically a fan of Ostrander/Duursema comic team-ups. Unfortunately, this was a little bit of a mess. There were probably too many characters in too little space. Defining them relied a little too much upon archetype, so their personalities were often flat and the stakes--no matter how arbitrarily raised they became--never really increased the tension. Given the unique setting at the founding of the Jedi Order, it is understandable that a lot of exposition would be needed. But often, the ex [...]

    14. Surprisingly enough, this was the first comic book that I have ever read. I know that sounds crazy, but as a kid, I would pick one up and skim through it, but they never really interested me the way books do*. So, I needed a departure from the Napoleonic Wars and I came across this and my nephew loves Star Wars and I figured I would give it a shot as I am a Stars Wars fan myself. It was ok at best.Maybe it is the bad humor/corny dialogue (which, to be honest, is Star Wars humor/dialogue!)that go [...]

    15. I was interested by the premise - a story about the origins of the Jedi and the earliest beginnings of the Star Wars universe. While this is all very interesting, it is actually only a very brief part of this story. The plot quickly changes into a fairly standard plot, which could have taken place at any point during the Star Wars timeline. I thought that was a little disappointing, especially as the start really sounded very interesting and promising. Nevertheless this comic is still quite enjo [...]

    16. Dawn of the Jedi by John Ostrander is possibly the closest you'll get to the earliest points of the Star Wars universe. To the very birth of the Jedi Order and all the stuff that follows with it. Except Y'know, it's a "Jed'ai" order. And the light side is a planet. And the dark side is a moon.The characters are bland, and the dialogue is extremely simplistic. But the story itself is fun, and the fights are good. Environments are interesting as well, but besides that there's not much to say. If y [...]

    17. Force Storm starts slow, solid character builsing, but otherwise dull. A couple issues in however, with Xhen(or whatever it's been a while) wrecking everyone and introducing the first ever lightsaber. Adding the Rakattans as a power and influential race gave the KOTOR need in me great pleasure. Basically it takes a while to start but is great once it gets going. Good characters, great and interesting plot, and awesome art.

    18. This is the story of the earliest time of the Jedi and Sith's. The story was pretty good and the art work was well done. The one thing that always seems to get me is how the technology is more advanced and they seem to have more power of the Darth Vadar. Wasn't he the chosen one? The one that had all the power?

    19. A different "feel" than other Star Wars comics I've read. I'm not quite sure how I fell about this story just yet. It's too early to feel any attachment to these new characters. It'll be interesting to see where Ostrander goes from here

    20. The art was awesome, the characters were cool, the story was fun. If you are a Star Wars fan, I'm sure you will appreciate and enjoy this as much as I did. I even bought a copy as a birthday present for my nephew. His parents named him Jedi =)

    21. This is a review for the whole series (3 volumes)What I liked most, I think, is that the creative team went with classic fantasy imagery (warrior women with swords on flying dragons, Conan, Red Sonja, that sort of thing) to tell a Star Wars story that takes place over 30,000 years before Yavin (since the Disney purchase, these stories would be considered legends as opposed to pseudo-canon like they were before). That aesthetic is about the only thing that gives the series and characters an "old" [...]

    22. I can’t even begin to explain what an utter failure Force Storm was and is. Minus Duursema’s fantastic artwork, there’s absolutely nothing to like about this, or really, the entire series. Confusing as hell plot line, boring exposition. A backstory that does nothing to further the mythos and history behind the Jedi and the vastness of the Star Wars franchise. I hated every second I spent reading this. Even worse this was penned by none other than mothereffing Jon Ostrander, perhaps one of [...]

    23. "Dawn of the Jedi" was surely an interesting reading, but not as immersive as I expected Perhaps because it was not exactly what I expected. Instead of focusing on the birth of the Jedi Order, it delivers a story about their ancestors, the Je'daii, but everything is reminiscent of the Sith-Jedi conflict, and as concepts such as the Balance in the Force are brought in, you have the feeling that you are reading events from the days of the Galactic Republic, not ~35000-23000 BBY.Still, the story is [...]

    24. Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi Volume One - Force Storm is a compilation of the first 5 comics in the Dawn of the Jedi comic series by Dark Horse Comics. I hadn’t read the comics before but was interested in reading them so jumped at a chance to review this book. I’ve been a fan of Star Wars for some time, though not to the extremes that some have gone. I enjoy the original trilogy, some of the video games, and appreciated the novels set in the era after Return of the Jedi.Spoilers BelowDawn of [...]

    25. DNF at 10%.The book Dawn of the Jedi was significantly better than this comic. For one, every female character is drawn the same way (luscious lips, boob windows, hourglass figure, etc) and for another the actual plot line just scattered. Every 2-3 pages you focus on another character which just makes everything confusing and sets up for poor character development imho. In any case, I'm bored and not planning on giving the series more of my time.

    26. This series seemed much better when I read it as single issues years ago. Now it seems kind of bland. Give credit to Disney/Marvel/Lucasfilm for all of the great new material coming out, I guess. Having said that, I hope this material and time period is explored again through either comics, novels, television or even the big screen.

    27. Just okay. The plot felt like it was over before it began, the characters were only as deep as the page was thick.

    28. Star Wars Legends Project #2Background: Dawn of the Jedi: Force Storm was released in five issues during the first half of 2012, with the trade paperback being released in December of 2012. It was written by John Ostrander and pencilled by Jan Duursema, who previously collaborated on the Star Wars: Legacy series of comics. In addition, Ostrander wrote a number of issues in the Star Wars: Republic series, among others, with a total of over a hundred Star Wars comic books to his credit. He is the [...]

    29. Star Wars's Dawn of Jedi began with a group of beings called Dai Bendo who attended a massive edifice known as the 'Tho Yor. They seek revelation and waited until the Tho Yor called to them. Soon the Tho Yor called to the people around the planetary system, offering guidance and wisdom to those who seek it. The Tho Yor acted as a space ship and lead toward the planet Thython where the people experience an energy similar to the calls they answered from the Tho Yor. Being attuned by the force, the [...]
