Last night I finished the Knight Errant series (the first comic arc, the novel, and then the remaining two comic arcs).

I had a lot of fun with this basically consequence-free era that John Jackson Miller was able to develop on his own. The crazy Sith were really cool. I just wish it had continued, and possibly melded in with the Darth Bane books.

Next I'm doing some New Canon comics, and then the Bane trilogy.

^ I forget most of the details, but I remember loving Knight Errant. I remember the Sith characters being very innovative. Weren't there children Sith who thought they were the only sentient beings in the galaxy?

Daiman thought he was the creator of the universe and the only sentient being in it. That all "life" in the Galaxy was actually something he imagined, and all complications in the universe a way of testing him (he fails at something because he made it difficult for himself).

The twins Quillan and Dromika impose their will directly on other people, and through telepathic transmitter beings directly control an entire planet.

Odion is physically hurt by the way the Force shines in others (it's too bright, essentially). He kills to seek relief, and has inspired suicidal death cults to do the same.

^ Oh, interesting. So I combined Daiman and Quillan & Dromika in my mind.

I just finished reading a swath of New Canon Star Wars comics. Namely:
    Vader Down crossover (Vader Down one-shot, Star Wars 13-14 and Darth Vader 13-15)
    Star Wars 15-25, Annual 2
    Darth Vader 16-25, Annual 1
    Chewbacca 1-5
    Obi-Wan and Anakin 1-5

In brief, the first Darth Vader series is a fantastic comic that everyone should read, the individual arcs of Star Wars are fun adventures, and Chewbacca was a fun romp. You don't need to read Obi-Wan and Anakin

The next thing I'm reading is the Darth Bane trilogy (plus the Jedi vs. Sith comic miniseries that also told the story of the Battle of Ruusan). I'm more than halfway through Darth Bane: Path of Destruction and I love it.

Just finished Darth Bane: Path of Destruction. Such a great Sith book! Next I'm doing Darth Bane: Rule of Two, but I'm hoping to quickly read the Jedi vs. Sith comics first.

The Darth Bane trilogy was fantastic. One of my favorites. Smile
