Looks great on the nook color. Loved the story and its good in length with great artwork. Worth a buy.

Story: A, Art: B- The story took awhile to start making sense, maybe 1/4 of the book, but by the end it wrapped up nicely while still leaving room for a series to take place. Character backstory was good, but their introduction was not clear. The art was teasonably well done, but stilted and stiff for much of it. Also some of the characters could have been more creatively named.

First comic I have purchased on the nook tablet and wow it looks better than expected. The story is awesome and I want more, just wish it lasted longer, I was expecting more pages.

Eh, it was okay. Had some good moments but was overall a disjointed read. Just okay.

This is an absolutely amazing comic for all ages! Set in the Old Republic era, this is the tale of a young Sith assasin on a mission. Does he suceed? Does he fail? What does he encounter? Find out in this amazing graphic novel by Dark Horse! The art in this comic is amazing. The characters, the planets, the action, the worlds, they're all just drawn, inked, and colored perfectly! The layouts were interesting. Some of the pages had very few or no panels. I really like the interesing layouts in this comic. The story is great. It has action, suspense, and drama. Thank goodness it's not just one of those comics that's constant fighting, just like in an action movie. There's actually a story to this. Overall, it's a great read. And, they sell ot on NOOK, which makes it even better. I can easily navigate through the book, I can zoom in and out, and the picture is amazing, with clear text and vibrant color. This was a great comic book that I really enjoyed. I'm glad that there is more to the series after this. GET THIS COMIC!!!!

So I never buy a book without checking it out a bit to see if i like it . How is it that Nook previews never show you any of the substance of a book or comic and youre expected to buy it?
