To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It was a good read especially if you played KOTOR. It’s a prequel to the game so you don’t really have to have played the game to enjoy it. You’ll appreciate the development of the characters from the game if you played it and if not enjoy some of the plot twists.
The Omnibus itself is quite nice. Arrived with no real damage other than the shrink wrap itself already being partially torn apart to the point that it was already almost opened for me. It's a great Omnibus and looks good on my shelf with my doctor Aphra omnibus.
Now as for the content itself. In my opinion it's easily some of the best storytelling and some of the best of the original expanded universe storyline. Won't go to heavily into spoilers but it follows a young Jedi and through their exploits and throughout the comic series you find out the original origins of Darth Revan along with Darth Malak and other iconic characters from Knights of the Old Republic.
This Omnibus collection consists of the original Knights of the Old Republic Omnibus collections of which there were three. They were re-released in the Marvel epic collection as volumes one through three which this Omnibus also consists of. So unless you're just a collector like I am, if you already have the 3 epic collection volumes that are out of print then you might be able to pass on this. That being said if you're a big Star Wars fan and you love Knights of the Old Republic like I do then I would highly suggest getting it especially if it's under $100.
A big thing to point out is that the stories in this collection were made long before the creation of the MMA video game. So nothing in that online video game is considered Canon to these Comics. These Comics were created back when only the first two Knights of the Old Republic games existed and these comics take place prior to the events roughly of the original Kotor game itself. Overall the art style is still great and the collection is in a great chronological order.
Make my review sure if you're a fan of Knights of the Old Republic whether it's the MMO or the original games, this is probably worth picking up. It's rich in Star Wars expanded universe content and it's easily superior to the new content that's come out in the last couple of years such as things like the high Republic. I would highly recommend this to my fellow Star Wars fans who love the extended universe as I do.
The series itself is fantastic, and has been around long enough that I’m not going to say more than yes, it’s worth reading it. Now onto the book itself, it’s well put together, sturdy and the pages have a nice feel. There’s minimal gutter loss and the spine is quality and looks like it should last for years and years with proper handling. My only issue (and honestly, it’s nitpicking) is I wish that the paper used was ever so slightly thicker stock.
Great for anyone who hasn't read the kotor comics before, but would've been nice to still include unseen unheard like the epic collections did. Some of the best starwars comics, and the tale will probably be in the next omni.
If you love Star Wars adventures with a lot of action, grit and excitement, this is the good stuff. Any KOTOR fans will want this book to really expand on their beloved galaxy of the Old Republic. Does a great job of playing into the games without relying on them to make the story work. Overall, pricy purchase, but expected for a 1000+ page graphic novel, weighs a ton, but worth its weight in gold!
One of the best Star Wars comics I've read, all 56 issues in one, giant harcover. I'd recommend this to any Star Wars fan, especially if they're a fan of the the Kotor games (as this ties into those with characters and locations).
The story is a lot of fun and I love the characters. Some of the art is fine, none of it is spectacular. A few of the early issues look pretty amateurish. Worth it for the twisting, often funny, epic story.
