Before the outbreak of the Clone Wars, the Jedi were involved in another major battle: the Stark Hyperspace War. Smuggler and pirate Iaco Stark's "commerical combine" has disrupted the production of bacta, the most important healing agent in the galaxy. By cornering the market on bacta, Stark hopes to amass a fortune. But other forces within the Republic have aligned themselves with the Trade Federation, and are hoping to use Stark's aggression as an excuse for military build up. It's up to the members of the Jedi Council to untangle the many deceits and intrigues and bring the criminals to justice before the galaxy is plunged into war!

Es gibt im Expanded Universe vor Episode 1 nur wenige Konflikte die derart faszinierend sind, wie der Stark Hyperspave War. Als letzter größerer galaktischer Konflikt vor der Belagerung von Naboo und dem 10 Jahre später folgenden Ausbruch der Klonkriege nimmt er eine besonders prophetische Rolle ein, nämlich als Stein des Anstoßes für die militärische Aufrüstung der Handelsföderation und den Bestrebungen auch die Republik zu bewaffnen.

Der Pirat und Schmuggler Iaco Stark steht im Zentrum des Geschehens, denn durch ein unheilvolles Bündnis mit Kopfgeldjägern, Syndikaten und anderem Abschaum hat er ein massives Bündnis in den Outer Rim Territorien geschaffen, das nun die intergalaktischen Handelsrouten bedroht. Die Situation läuft jedoch aus dem Ruder als ein Einbruch der galaxisweiten Bacta-Produktion die Preise in die Höhe schnellen läst und das Stark-Handelskombinat immer mehr Schiffe der Handelsföderation angreift. Damit noch nicht genug verkaufen Stark und seine Schergen das Universalheilmittel auch noch erheblich günstiger als jede Konkurrenz und so wundert es niemanden dass Vizekönig Nute Gunray vor dem Senat ein härteres Durchgreifen gegen die "Verbrecher" fordert.

Eine Vorsprache die besonders bei den Militaristen unter der Führung von Senator Rainulph Tarkin auf hohe Resonanz stößt und einmal mehr die Aufstellung einer eigenen republikanischen Armee und Flotte gefordert wird, um solchen Krisen ein für allemal ein Ende zu bereiten. Senator Finis Valorum setzt jedoch einen anderen Plan durch, unter seinem Vorsitz und mit Gunray als Vertreter der Handelsföderation will ein Gipfeltreffen mit Stark erreichen um eine friedliche Einigung zu erzielen.

Star Wars Comics gehören in den seltensten Fällen zu den Juwelen des Genres, aber diese Geschichte liegt auch nach diesem Maßstäben am unteren Ende der Skala.
Kurz zur Geschichte: Irgendwo zwischen the Phantom Menace und Attack of the Clones versucht ein Pirat (Stark) mit Hilfe einer zusammengewürfelten Gruppe die Herrschaft der Galaxis zu übernehmen (oder so ähnlich). Da die Galaktische Republik ja bekanntlich kein Militär hat (was mir immer noch völlig unverständlich ist) wird in aller Eile eine Flotte gebaut und unter dem Kommando von Tarkin (ja, genau dem) in die Schlacht geschickt.
Ohne genau auf die Story eingehen zu wollen: Die Geschichte ist ziemlich langweilig, unlogisch, und auch vom Zeichnungsstill nicht sonderlich ansprechend. Einziger Pluspunkt: Einige der liebgewonnenen Jedi-Charaktere aus der Serie Star Wars: Republic (aus der dieses Paperback ein Auszug ist) spielen auch micht.
Fazit: Nur für beinharte Star Wars Fans erträglich.

Good for a bite, nothing too fancy 7. November 2004
Von Excellence - Veröffentlicht auf
When young rogue Iarco Stark decides the galaxy needs a good shake, you know Stark Hyperspace War is just ready to rumble.

Set after Darkness, with Aayla Secura returned to the Council for retraining following her current amnesia, this story is told in flashback when a veteran just seems to walk into the room. A dozen years before TPM, the attack on a bacta refinery sends market prices soaring and worlds roaring. Into the equation come the Jedi diplomatic team, and shadowing their tails the radical Ranulph Tarkin, whose military ambitions outweigh whatever usefulness his puffing presence offers. Throw in Stark's smarmy mouth, the expectant flavour of bumbling Jedi, and the resulting recipe is action all the way.

Or at least, that's the overall idea. The reality is action on a pony ride.

Readers of Hunt for Aurra Sing and Acts of War will find the art familiar. This means saber blades and energy shots are little more than colour sticks, illustrations and detail simple. Not terribly sophisticated, but it gets the job done. But it's those darn floating heads that can grate on you, and head shots there are plenty, reminding you not to confuse the present to the main flashback escapade, as though that was even possible. Senator Valorum didn't look a thing like his movie counterpart, but neither did Calrissian in Scoundrel's Luck . . . and it's not like Antilles resembled his alter ego all that much too in his Rogue Squadron series, but what the hey, it's all creative liberty.

The Republic fleet consists of the ubiquitous Consular cruisers and a variety of other Judicial Dept refitted cruisers. Artists seem to like that particular of nondescript attack fighter, the one Sing flew in her Hunt for Aurra comic. Alien variety wasn't too high either, but the nature of the setting didn't demand it.

Stark Hyperspace has only half of its issue fronts collected in the TPB, a criminal trend that SW comics seem to be doing. An outrageous snub to TPB collectors seeing how you can fit them all one measly page, and how cool the Wookie Jedi looked with those blaster bolts blazing around his saber swing!

Apparently it was yet again necessary to remind us who was who with the use of full character names. Ask yourself who speaks each other's full names in your home, class or workplace, that comics demand this highly annoying custom. Why would a Jedi conversing with a fellow Jedi they've known for decades slow their speech with such needless formality? Yes, TPBs are several issues combined, but you don't need that many instances.

The popularity of Republic comics has made Jon Ostrander an equally popular name among fans. As the primary Jedi Plo Koon didn't waste words on the mess they're neck in, Valorum was refreshingly blunt, the Jedi still talk like archaic holos and Tarkin's father was a cold air balloon of blustering wasted potential. Humour wasn't wasted, however, and Billy Bango's howling at them wippersnappers shows why it's good to have more Podracer-type aliens.

No Jedi story is complete without a Jedi death, of course, but comics and books have showed a Hutt load of them dying in the most inane and casual ways. You started asking why Sith need work themselves so hard, or what value the formidable Tyyvoka's allegedly canny foresight is really worth. Buy SW comics and you see the familiar pattern: when you're told a Jedi is particularly powerful, they don't seem to last long. But it's damn refreshing to see new Jedi take the stage for once, and this is where Stark Hyperspace has its value. Koon may have his cameos elsewhere, but he leads the show here. Jinn and Kenobi support the cast, rather than dominate them for once, and it's great to see Tholme and Quinlin as a pair, particularly as Kenobi and Quin are fledgling apprentices. Their friendship is forged here, to be tested in later Republic stories. Like all her comics inclusions, though, Adi Gallia does little.

The ending comes out as a little weak, but not quite the style you're used to seeing in general. But hey, with Koon playing his telepathy, action galore and more Neimodian whimpering, you can find far better juvenile drivel like Betrayal and those twin TOTJ prequel nonsense.

Excellent continuation of the Quinlan Vos storyline 31. Dezember 2003
Von JediMack - Veröffentlicht auf
This Comic combines issues 36 through 39 and losely picks up where the TPB DARKNESS leaves off. Given that the story mostly involves events that take place before the battle of Naboo I would put it at -32.05 BNH.
The story opens with Quinlan and his padawan Aayla Secura finally at the Jedi Temple for memory recovery. Windu begins telling the story of Iaco Stark and the hyperspace war that involved Bacta and Thyferra. The SHW takes place just before EP1.
The story is by Ostrander, one of my favorites and rates 4.5.
The overall comic design is a throwback to the old style comic strip stuff I thought we were past.
Design gets 3 stars. In fact, the poor design decision may be the cause for my partial dislike of the pencil and ink work. The pencil work is uneven with the main flaw being the poorly drawn rendition of Obi-Wan. The inking by Vecchia is 4.5 stars and could have been a 5 had the design been more like Darkness or the new TPB Clone Wars volume 2. Duursema's cover art is 5 stars.
The art of Foster is 2 stars.
Overall, this is a solid 4 star comic and highly recommended. It is a valuable addition to brilliantly conceived PRE-QUEL era work being done by Darkhorse and Lucas et al.

Ostrander is outstanding 12. Januar 2006
Von Z. Stern - Veröffentlicht auf
After reading this graphic novel, along with other John Ostrander works, (Twilight, Darkness, Rite of Passage, Devaronian Version, and Clone Wars volumes 1-6) I think it's safe to say that he is one of the best comic writers out there. The strength of The Stark Hyperspace War was an excellent story that focuses mainly on a little-known conflict and some of the little-known people involved in it. This book finally shows more of Plo Koon and of how Obi-wan and Quinlan Vos became friends as Padawans. However, Stark Hyperspace War's art was above average at best. Quinlan, Obi-wan, Plo Koon, they all looked as if they were cut out from pictures from the movies. Others, such as Master Tholme, Finis Valorum, Qui-Gon, didn't look real at all. The latter appeared rather cartoon-ish. Still, this didn't detract from the book at all. Mix in the superb storyline with great binding that didn't fall apart in my hands, and this graphic novel is well worth every penny.
John Ostrander Does It Again 14. Mai 2010

I am a big fan of John Ostrander. He's a phenomenal writer and The Stark Hyperspace War is no exception. At first, having read references to this event in other areas, I thought that there was no way that it could be fit into this volume and have any type of real content or flow. I am pleased to say that I was wrong. I really enjoyed this book.

Along with the writing, the artwork was awesome. This is an area that I'm really picky in. If I'm going to read a comic/graphic novel, I want to see great artwork. There have been many times that I have read a comic or graphic novel that had a good story, but I couldn't deal with the artwork and I actually put it down. The art and writing together here create something that is extraordinary in my eyes. If you are a Star Wars fan, this is a definite must.
Boring, don't bother 18. Oktober 2007

I have read a lot of books by Ostrander and Duursema. In this book the artist is different and Ostrander has help from other authors. And that is the problem. I found this book to be incredibly tedious, partly from the fact is is written in flashback mode. And the art is not as good as Duursema's

I gave this 2 stars instead of 1, because there is some character backgrounding of notable Jedi and soon to be CIS/Imperial characters, Though its not developed enough to really give you any insight. It's almost like cameos.
