This week true believers, Beyonders, Fanboys, Fangirls, respected aliens around the galaxy, The Defender of the EU; Mark Hurliman, and your EU Guru; Nathan P. Butler, sit down to discuss Dark Horse Comic’s Darth Maul: Son of Dathormir by Jeremy Barlow. So strap in, and tighten your crash webbing Fandom, Star Wars Beyond the Films is setting off on another rapid-fire trip into the galaxy far, far away!tumblr_n5o7z0vyZA1rlheeoo1_500Jumping right in, your hosts give you their SPOILER-FREE run down as per their norm. First from a Canon, then a Legends viewpoint. Just be sure to jump out around 20 minutes in when Tarkin’s Arrogance plays.

This episode runs longer than most due to the intricate nature of this Star Wars comic. The story presented exists in both Canon and Legends timelines. The hosts discuss how this works and other things as they move deeper into the story.

Side note: The Sith ship is in fact, NOT Maul’s from Episode 1, as reported in an interview with Jeremy Barlow by Jedi News:

JN: Was the Sith infiltrator in the 4th issue, Maul’s original one or another model?

JB: In the episode screenplay, that ship is designated as “similar to what Darth Maul flew in Episode I”—so it’s another model.

Some panels that the hosts enjoyed, or pondered this episode (Picture Spoilers below):

Grevious kills a similar looking Mandalorian, but the shoulder plates give him away as not Saxxon.

20141003_154606-1While some character fates become known, enough remains unknown to suggest that The Clone Wars is far from finished telling its stories.

There were also a lot of variants fro issue #1, as well as the Trade paperback:

Once more your hosts cover entirely too much Darth Lords and Witches action this episode. But don’t worry, give it a go; you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you might even get a little education on Star Wars while you’re at it. But no matter how you slice it and dice it, you’ll be having another adventure Beyond the Films. So sit back, hang on, enjoy the show, and may the Force be with you!
