Star Wars: Darth Maul – Son of Dathomir TPB [2014]

The story takes place after the animated series Star Wars: Clone Wars. Darth Maul is captured by his master Darth Sidious. His imprisonment is short-lived as he is rescued by the Shadow Collective. This draws the attention of General Grievous who withers Maul’s army. It’s all a plan by Sidious to draw out the witch Mother Talzin, who was behind Darth Maul’s resurrection.

Talzin tells Maul to head to the Black Sun’s stronghold on Ord Mantell. Count Dooku and General Grievous soon follow and commence bombardment from space as the Nightbrothers arrive to aid Maul. With their help the tide has turned and both Dooku and Grievous are captured. The battle draws the attention of the Republic and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Both Dooku and Maul decide to join forces to fight off the Republic and quickly made their escape to Dathomir. Count Dooku is tortured to accept the spirit of Mother Talzin as General Grievous and Darth Sidious arrives on Dathomir. At full strength Mother Talzin becomes whole as she fights against Darth Sidious and Count Dooku before her fall before General Grievous

This is the final publication of a Darth Maul series by Dark Horse as the Star Wars license goes back to Marvel Comics. The publications of the Star Wars titles under Dark Horse will be labeled Star Wars Legends as the stories may or may not be true.
