The final days of the Clone Wars have come. As the Republic
and its Jedi order hurtle towards their tragic and unforeseeable
end, hope remains alive in those who refuse to forsake their
duty, and who would not see their beliefs perish, nor their
the cratered surface of Saleucami, the Dark Jedi Sora Bulq
has begun cloning an army of Morhukai assassins. Unwilling
to leave this grave new threat unchecked, the Republic soon
finds itself entrenched in a five-month siege. Now, time and
resources have run out, and it's up to Jedi Quinlan Vos and
Aayla Secure to infiltrate the Separatists base and defeat
Bulq before his plans are complete.
Last Siege, the Final Truth is the eighth volume in the
Clone Wars collection. To be honest, when you strip this
tale down to its bare bones there's very little that happens.
This collection concludes the saga of undercover Jedi Quinlan
Vos and... er... that's about all that happens.
that may sound like a complaint, but it's not. I was really
happy to see that author John Ostrander was allowed to flesh
out the final act in this segment of the Clone Wars
series. Sure everything that is revealed could have been told
in one issue instead of the six issues of Dark Horse's Star
Wars: Republic comic series it was originally published
in... but then all the subtleties, all the beauty of this
strip would not have been half as impressive if Ostrander
has wrapped everything up quickly.
"is he, isn't he?" question mark that hangs over
Quinlan Vos's real motives needed some breathing space in
order to make the final pages pay off as well as they do.
Even in the closing panels the reader is still not sure whether
he is working for the Dark Side, or is truly a loyal Jedi,
and it's this element that provides some very interesting
Wars fans will applaud the clever writing, as well as
the beautiful art work. And to be honest this is far more
than just another Star Wars collection - it's a work
of art that belongs in a gallery. Quite frankly amazing.
