THE CLONE WARS: RETURN OF THE SON OF DATHOMIR!
Last seen being electrified by the overwhelming powers of his former master, Darth Sidious, the resurrected Darth Maul disappointingly failed to have an onscreen conclusion to his arc in THE CLONE WARS animated series, though a story involving rescue by the Mandalorians, but ultimately a pawn of the Sith to eradicate Mother Talzin of Dathomir, was in the stages of production before the axe fell. That epic script- Son of Dathomir- has thankfully now been adapted into a new four-issue comic series from DARK HORSE, so far receiving some very positive critical notices.
Here's hoping more unmade TCW stories (like the planned Wookiee arc, the return of Ahsoka and the Cad Bane/Boba Fett team-up, as seen here: To Fans of Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Thank You | Star Wars Blog | Star Wars Blog) get to novel or comic book form in the not too distant future...
Look for a review of the complete Son of Dathomir series on AFICIONADO in the not too distant future.
