Old Friends: Ulic Qel-Droma, Nomi Sunrider, Vima Sunrider, Tott Doneeta, Sylvar, Master Thon
Synopsis: After 10 years, Ulic Qel Droma is still running away from his past. He has hired the starpilot Hoggon to find him an abandoned world where he can live the last days of his life, alone, even without the company of the Force.
Meanwhile, Vima Sunrider is anxious to become a Jedi, but her mother is too busy to teach her, and after all these years, even Sylvar hasn't forgiven Ulic for slaying her life-mate. She and Tott Doneeta are trying to find a way to ease her inner pain.
Vima runs away from her mother to find Ulic - she wants him to teach her the Jedi Way. She lets Hoggon bring her to Ulic, who is hiding on the ice world Rhen Var. Ulic isn't pleased that Vima wants to be taught by him, but after a while, he starts training her. Nomi finds out about Vima and uses the Force to find her and ends up facing Ulic after all this time. Hoggon tells Sylvar where she can find Ulic and brings the vengeful Jedi to Rhen Var.
Review: BooooHoooo *cries* This is the sad story of the fallen Jedi Knight Ulic Qel-Droma and its a very good story too - not that original, but good. We see how sorry Ulic is for what he has done and the fact that he no longer has the Force only makes it worse for him. He has become a sad and broken man, until a little light called Vima Sunrider comes to him.
He trains her to become a Jedi and she makes Ulic feel more happy than he has been for 10 years. And then there's Hoggon, an annoying, fat little pilot who's obsessed with the Jedi. He brings Ulic (not knowing that he is Ulic Qel-Droma, the "Dark Jedi Criminal") to Rhen Var and in the end, betrays him. Aylvar and Tott Doneeta are trying to get the anger and hate out of Sylvar, the anger and hate towards Ulic, who killed her life mate, and his brother Cay.
And now...The Art! Excellent artwork!! Every panel is a painting, sometimes real simple paintings, but they are paintings! We don't get to see that real often. Ulic looks great, Vima looks great and all the others do too. Chris Gossett and Andrew Pepoy did a great job - the art fits the story completely.
This is an excellent comic, worthy of the "Tales of the Jedi" name. The art and the story are great. Have I convinced you to buy it yet??
