Hello all, or one, or none. Welcome to the first (shockingly) "official" Rereading of the "Knights of the Old Republic" comic, or if you prefer Kotor. Now its no secret on these forums that kotor was a gem among gems, even in its time of multiple other successful star wars comics and other expanded universe materiel it always managed to stand out by way of its humor, story and above all else, wonderful characters. Specifically its protagonist Zayne Carrick, who managed to stand in bright contrast to the complete glut of brooding, conflicted, dark, prodigy Star Wars hero's, by being the complete opposite of that in literally every way imaginable. I gained the desire to make this thread after rereading every single issue thread on these forums, with the benefit of hindsight the discussions and theories broached here were hilarious and very often dead wrong, but what wasn't was an almost jarring amount of love and investment in the story John Jackson Miller crafted. Even my own substantial time spent here talking about it really does not do justice to how well (for most) this comic did at keeping people satisfied and intrigued for its whole run, a rarity among rarity in Star Wars fandom. And that positive experience, as well as my own desire to reread my favorite comic ever has flowered into this. So, how am I going to do this, the maybe 3 people who might read this thread ask? Well simple by rereading and musing on all of it. Its continuity, its connections to the 2 Kotor games and the wider EU, including specifically the way it contrasted it sister series' also running at the time so heavily. As well as the occasional separate posts on individual characters and my thoughts on them. (If that"s actually of interest to anyone). Also the occasional theory on where things might have gone if Kotor had continued or maybe even how these wonderful characters could be slotted into the NEU, IT COULD STILL HAPPEN SHUT UP. Starting with 0, each issue post will include the cover for the respective issue as well as a link to JJM's issue notes which our criminally under read. Who knows, JJM frequents here, maybe he could even stop by to answer some questions and share his thoughts if this thread gets any traction. This was probably incredibly long for a reread thread intro, that doesn't even include the first Issue in it, but to me Kotor deserves the love, and I hope many, or really any of you might feel the same. With all that said, let's get started.......the second I'm done talking a nap.
