Knights of the Old Republic: War #4 is pretty interesting. First off, the cover reminded me of the rakghoul plague and has a very heavy horror feel to it. Honestly, it doesn’t look like something that fits into the series. However, if you’re a fan of KOTOR, it’s all apart of the plan.This issue certainly packs some punch.

The artwork inside is on par with what we’ve seen so far in the series. There’s a lot of shadow work in the faces, and I’ve noticed Zayne has a bit of a Wedge Antilles look. The reader will get to see a lot of Mandos and ships in this issue. There’s even some new Mando armor worn by Marshal Garon Borm. Of all the scenes, the last panel is my favorite as it highlights the Mandalorian Knights launching into action with a good amount of detail.

Story wise there is a pretty wide range of emotions in this issue. It starts off with some light humor and midway through things boil into some serious drama. Both Zayne and Morvis air out their feelings. The result ended surprisingly well. Afterwards their escape plans take a very unexpected turn that I did not see coming. It was also one of the best surprises so far in the series, and on par with anything Zayne and Gryph ever pulled.

Decent art and a great story certainly earn KOTOR: War #4 a four out of five metal bikinis. There’s only one issue left in this arc, and things are set for a showdown. It’ll be interesting if the story ends on a serious note or a lighthearted one. Either way, I like how this arc is playing out, and I think War has definitely hit it’s stride. This is one issue old KOTOR fans will definitely love, and I’m sure new readers will get a kick out of it too.
