Amazon.de

In the "expanded universe" of Star Wars, Mara Jade has emerged as one of the more complex, satisfying creations in the extended SW Canon. The personal assassin of the Emperor, Jade is imbued with the Force, though not a Jedi, and "executes" her missions with fervent loyalty to the Empire. With Good and Evil so explicitly defined in the movies, Jade's "greyness" has a potential that this series explores well. Set in the immediate aftermath of "Return of The Jedi", the Emperor is dead, yet Jade has one final mission to complete: the assassination of The Black Nebula crime syndicate. With the galaxy in turmoil and facing a massive power struggle, she faces the prospect of being loyal only to herself and her imperial connections giving her a death sentence. Star Wars novel veterans Zahn and Stackpole perfectly provide Jade with an air of ruthless efficiency but with growing uncertainty of her position in a vastly expanded hierarchy. They also weave their tale within the events of Return of the Jedi,so there are fleeting appearances from Boba Fett and Jabba the Hutt. Ezquerra's gritty art is suited to the story's grimy setting on Tatooine's gangster enclaves, though purists might bemoan the lack of space-battles and hardware that informs Cam Kennedy's Star Wars work. This explores the depth and intrigue that is only hinted at in the films and, while there is plenty of light sabre play to keep the core faithful happy, this ensures that a galaxy full of adventures awaits this femme fatale of the Force. --Danny Graydon

Synopsis

From the most phenomenally successful sci-fi film series of all time, Star Wars, come all-new comic strip adventures, based on the characters and worlds created by George Lucas. Introduced in Zahn's own trilogy of books and laced skilfully into the tapestry of the first Star Wars movie trilogy, Mara Jade has become an integral and mysterious part of the Star Wars saga. Now, at last, her secrets are revealed! This epic adventure spans a time before and after the events in Return of the Jedi, as Mara Jade embarks on a mission of revenge, her target -- Luke Skywalker!

Nice to have a Mara story 2. Mai 2012
Von Enjolras - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Bibliothekseinband
I love Timothy Zahn's Star Wars work and Mara Jade was an inspired entry into the Star Wars universe. Despite that, we haven't seen too many good Mara Jade stories. Even the Mara Jade-centric novel Allegiance failed to give Mara much depth. Fortunately, I found "By the Emperor's Hand" on eBay for a cheap price and got to enjoy some real Mara Jade adventures.

In "By the Emperor's Hand", Mara Jade is tasked with taking out Black Nebula, a criminal organization like Black Sun. This adventure on its own is fun. However, what made this story worth reading - and what almost all Mara Jade stories since the Thrawn Trilogy have lacked - is character growth. This comic covers the period from the beginning of ROTJ to after the Emperor' death. We see Mara cope with the repercussions of Palpatine's death, as well as the repercussions of her own actions. Mara's sense of justice and righteousness come through as her mission against Black Nebula becomes personal. There's a particularly great scene in a cantina that perfectly encapsulates the character.

As much as I like the book, it's clear Timothy Zahn isn't a natural at writing comics. The story spends far too much time with Mara's thoughts, especially during the first third of the book. It would have been better had it focused more on dialogue or visual images. Still, this is well worth the read for Mara Jade fans.
