After a year and a half of suffering with this title, it’s finally coming together. From a plot point of view Dark Horse’s Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic issue #19 is easily the best issue this year pulling together all the major characters of the series.
We’ve got Mandalaorians
We’ve got the Republic Fleet
We’ve got Jedi (good and bad)
We’ve got the Arcanians (offshoots and purebloods)
Zayne Carrick is coming face to face (or back to back) with his Jedi tormentor

And its’ all coming together..the plot lines and the characters.

The only thing missing is the Sith – then again – Lord Adasca, head of the massive corporation Adascorp – might well be a Sith considering the way he’s manipulated the universe.

The weak link in this issue is the art. It is painfully pathetic at points and very amateurish. As I’ve complained before Zayne Carrick our main ‘hero’ in this series gets yet another treatment – so he look different again. If you compare how Zayne is drawn across say 5 issues you’ll see what looks like 5 different characters.

Still KOTOR #19 is a solid issue continuing from the solid issue #18. It’s a good trend and we can only hope that Dark Horse’s editors wizen up and put some real artists to work on this book.

Not bad. Not bad at all.

Continuing on from issue #17 – we finally get a decent issue.

After at least 6 issues that totally sucked, Dark Horse has finally put together really decent issue of Knights of the Old Republic. No it’s not even 1/10th what Legacy is, but hey it’s a start.

In this issue we finally figure out what camper was hiding in his brain – truth is until this issue i couldn’t have cared less about camper. But in one issue we get alot – we find out what he knows and we find out why it’s important.

Even more interesting is the fact that after WAY WAY WAY too many issues we may finally be getting closer to a reunion with Zane and some kind of Jedi confrontation.

Will Zane save them all? I’d guess so. But hey after being ready to give up on this series now once again I’m interested enough to keep reading and see what will happen next.

Apparently there is a deep hole on Mars that could lead to a route to Life on Mars.

No i’m not making this up and it’ss actually Science and not SciFi.

A very dark spot on Mars could be an entrance to a deep hole or cavern, according to scientists studying imagery taken by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

The geological oddity measures some 330 feet (100 meters) across and is located on an otherwise bright dusty lava plain to the northeast of Arsia Mons, one of the four giant Tharsis volcanoes on the red planet.

The hole might be the sort of place that could support life or serve as a habitat for future astronauts, researchers speculated.

REad the whole story on Space.
