Knights of the Old Republic: Flashpoint is a solid step forward in the series. I enjoyed it just as much as the first installment. The plot takes a different turn than Commencement which was slightly more personal and character based to set up the plot. Flashpoint however takes a slightly different approach setting up the social/political situation as well as the distant threat of the Mandalorians.
Additionally I really enjoyed some of the artistic and storytelling choices made to link the series to the events of Tales of the Jedi. The dialogue makes numerous references to the Sith Wars and Exar Kun, and the art makes several references to the older series through some Mandalorian designs and certain aliens that were first seen in Tales of the Jedi. I also thought the writing was well done, especially the incorporation of humor. Some parts are genuinely funny, in or out of the Star Wars universe. And that’s not to mention the subtle but noticeable foreshadowing of Malak and the events of the video game, also named Knights of the Old Republic.
All in all, this is a quality graphic novel. The only possible complaint is that it’s not too clear what role the main characters will take. But other than that it’s a very enjoyable read and I look forward to the next installment.
