Star Wars - The Old Republic #1 (Comic)

With the end of the Star Wars: Legacy comics upon us, Dark Horse Comics has once again taken us back to the Old Republic era with Star Wars: The Old Republic.
With events taking place three hundred years after Knights of the Old Republic, we get to once again see how the Jedi and Sith wage their galaxy wide war.
Since it's only a single issue into the series we can't really determine how much anyone is truly going to enjoy it; however, the first issue did leave us hoping that transition from one scenario to another will become a lot smoother.
There was a lot of jumping from place to place and if you get distracted for a second you may forget where exactly you are. Too many characters were introduced in this single issue, and other than learning that the Sith will be Sith and Jedi Padawans still need to learn patience, we didn't really get to know any of them.
But keeping in mind that this series is also based off the upcoming video game from Bio-Ware and even has some novels due out as well, we can only hope all these things will help round out the story of the Old Republic.
