    “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.

    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 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).

    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!

    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.

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