Tired of your life sucking? This comic probably won't help (but it might):

This one was monumentally better than the end of Act I because:

1) It did not feel like it was put together at the last minute.

2) That Jedi not only owned that Sith, but did it effectively and his humor made me actually like him. Why can't the Jedi all be like that one? I certainly hope TOR-era Jedi are a major improvement from Great Sith War/KOTOR era Jedi because that is the only way I will even CONSIDER the vague possibility of choosing a Jedi/Republic class over being a Sith Lord.

Love it. Like battles of old time sword plays, books, stories. Great stuff.

"That's why I always carry two."

I could tell about the guy by story and dialogue that he was a battlemaster. Maybe not subtle, maybe too all eager for his own good to meet a challenge. Deceived the enemy with a trick up his sleeve. Hell yeah.

Yes, that one was marginally better than the last offerings. At least now we have a character in the story...

I like the comic and yet i dont... but it is a nice way of telling the story before the game.

Yawn!!!

I guess i'll have to echo that sentiment.

It's definately improving, but at a snail's pace. There's still something about them that's kind of... off-putting. The whole comic feels half-hearted, if that makes any sense.

That it does. It doesn't exactly leave us desperate to read next week's isue to see what happens next!

Thinking about it, it's probably something to do with them being free - Dark Horse may not feel as inclined to put in a complete effort when they'd probably rather focus on their commercial releases.

This issue is slightly better than the other things we've seen from it, but it's still not good.

That might be true for the art, but the comic's written by one of Bioware's senior writers, and it's in Dark Horse's best interest to make a promotional product a good one.

What's to expect, with three pages a week.
I know plenty of other webcomics that keep my attention at one or two pages a week

I guess I'm in the minority but I typically find these webcomics interesting. I did enjoy the latest offering too - the Jedi seems to skirt the gray edges. Perhaps I'm biased though, since I am totally enthralled by this era in general.

Much better then I expected after the terrible end of Act I.

Kind-of liked the armor the jedi had.
