    “Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order - Dark Temple” (wow, that’s a mouthful of a title) is the requisite comic book tie-in to the “Star Wars: Jedi: Fallen Order” videogame that was released last month, to which this serves as a prequel. And, like most of Marvel’s “Star Wars” output, it falls squarely into the category of being“perfectly adequate” – the story is diverting enough, without ever being truly gripping, and the characters have just enough personality and quirk to disguise the fact that they’ “Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order - Dark Temple” (wow, that’s a mouthful of a title) is the requisite comic book tie-in to the “Star Wars: Jedi: Fallen Order” videogame that was released last month, to which this serves as a prequel. And, like most of Marvel’s “Star Wars” output, it falls squarely into the category of being“perfectly adequate” – the story is diverting enough, without ever being truly gripping, and the characters have just enough personality and quirk to disguise the fact that they’re basically just engines to keep the story moving. Really, the only thing about “Dark Temple” that rises above the level of 'competent' is the art by Paolo Villanelli, which mixes dichotomous colors with sharp line work to meld into something that’s genuinely striking and distinct. Fans of “Fallen Order” might be apt to see what some of their favorite characters were up in the years preceding the game’s story, but rest assured: story-wise, there’s not much to glean here, outside of one or two teasing allusions. Die-hard fans of “Star Wars” will probably enjoy this well enough; anyone else probably need not read.

    I've been enjoying the game so i thought I'd check this out. Unfortunately it was a bit boring.

    I am not even sure why I decided to pick this up. I haven't played the video game(though I do plan to) and wasn't particularly interested. It wasn't actually even very good. But I still liked it quite a bit. I'm not sure if that makes sense but there it is. 3 stars.

    I liked it wayyy more than I expected. "Unclear, a Jedi's mission often is."

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Average read. Marvels canon comics have been pretty mediocre and average for the most part, particularly for short running series like this one. This serves as a prequel to the fun Jedi: Fallen Order game, and focuses on Cere Junda as a Padawan and the late Eno Cordova. They travel to a brand new planet that is having a Civil War and it turns out that both sides are scheming to destroy each other through treachery and manipulation of the Jedi's allegiances. The story is a decent standalone, but Average read. Marvels canon comics have been pretty mediocre and average for the most part, particularly for short running series like this one.

The story is a decent standalone, but ultimately inconsequential as it only has vague references to the game storyline and doesn't really add much to it. It seems like Disney is simply intent on pumping out as much Star Wars material as possible as fast as possible regardless of the innovation and quality of it. In the comic department, Marvel seems afraid to branch out into new territory and explore different eras and is sticking to the "safe" route by rehashing backstories of familiar characters like Vader (i swear if they don't end the Vader series soon...) and sticking close to familiar projects like Fallen Order. I miss the Dark Horse Legends comics like Legacy, Dawn of the Jedi, Dark Times, etc...

    If this is any indication of what the Fallen Order game is like, then my God, I’m gonna hate it. Dark Temple is a totally snooze fest. It plods along with a plot that doesn’t literally nothing for Star Wars except bore the piss out of the them. Worse, Nothing happens for 136 pages. Literally not a single damn thing. Of course I’m being mildly facetious, though I legitimately cannot remember any particular moment that stands out or any big reveal that happens. Adding to that, Cere is a lame If this is any indication of what the Fallen Order game is like, then my God, I’m gonna hate it. Dark Temple is a totally snooze fest.

Of course I’m being mildly facetious, though I legitimately cannot remember any particular moment that stands out or any big reveal that happens. Adding to that, Cere is a lame character who’s only distinguishing characteristic from the hundreds of other padawans that populate this franchise’s history is that she’s dark skinned. How Rosenberg managed to make this last 5 issue, I have no idea, but regardless, Dark Temple was easily the worst canon comic/graphic novel to come out on the past 6 months (though I’m sure Dr. Aphra was crap too, but I gave up on that series a long time ago).

    I wanted to read this to prep for the Jedi Fallen Order game, and as a story on its own, it's kinda boring and I feel like the titular Dark Temple didn't add much to the story, and the whole conflict situation going on the planet was rather dull to me, but the short prologues that involved this Inquisitor was more interesting than the entire miniseries. The characters weren't very engaging to me, and the main lead was rather too impulsive given her Jedi status.

The characters weren't very engaging to me, and the main lead was rather too impulsive given her Jedi status. The artwork made some of the character designs look weird, like Cere Junda had a very large forehead and Mace Windu had a long neck in one panel of one issue. Overall, I was expecting some compelling mystery involving ancient Jedi and the Force, but what I got was trade negotiations and a rebellion!

    Lots going on here. Great story and plenty of details but it all goes by in a rush. By the end it feels like pages are double stuffed. I think this series would have translated better to screen, like in a clone wars arc. Still it was nice to get a look at Cere, Cordova, and the Republic.

    This was a really cool lead up to Jedi: Fallen Order. I am looking forward to the game and wanted some cool backstory, which I got. This take place a the end of the Clone Wars and sets us up for the events in the game. Great artwork in this one too!

    This was fun and did a great job of filling in some history to the characters in the game. Fun with great art

    I ate this up. I hope we get more in this world, in game, comic, or book form (but also, movie!)
