    1 thought on “By the Emperor's Hand (Star Wars: Mara Jade)

    1. Mara Jade était, avant d'être une contrebandière et ensuite une Jedi et la femme de Luke Skywalker, la Main de l'Empereur. Palpatine lui offrait des tâche qui de mandait plus de subtilité que Darth Vader était capable. Son univers s'écroule lors de la mort de l'Empereur. Elle doit rebâtir sa vie à zéro. Son passé ressurgit lorsqu'une organisation que devait avoir supprimé refait surface et tue son nouveau patron. Son objectif est maintenant simple : éliminer les dirigeant de la Néb [...]

    2. Alors je ne sais pas si c'est le seul comics à propos de Mara Jade et si c'est l'un des premiers mais j'ai trouvé qu'il manquait de profondeur. On ne sait rien ou presque sur le passé de Mara à part qu'elle est " La Main de l'Empereur" et son parcours pour arriver jusque là est flou. Du coup, je n'ai pas pu m'attacher à ce personnage alors qu'elle a beaucoup de potentiel. On ne connaît ni ses objectifs, ni ses motivations. J'avais l'impression de la suivre comme ça sans intérêt sauf à [...]

    3. Mara Jade: By the Emperor's Hand #0-#6When you grab an older Star Wars book, you often have no idea what you're going to find. Sometimes it disappoints, but other times it perfectly hits the spot. This mini-series covers the life of imperial operative Mara Jade before and after Emperor Palpatine, the man she has devoted her life to serving, is slain. Without the protection and resources of her patron behind her, Mara is forced to rely on her instincts and forge a new path for herself outside the [...]

    4. 4 ABYThis is an interesting story told from Mara Jade's perspective. The reader is given both narrative of Mara Jade's adventures as well as direct monologue and dialogue. This series is about Mara Jade when she is working as the Emperor's Hand. Mara must assassinate whoever gets in the way of the Emperor, whether it be a crime lord such as Dequc or Luke Skywalker. When Mara gets word of the Emperor's downfall, her whole world turns around, and the last command Emperor Palpatine give her is "Kil [...]

    5. A complete self contained story that happens around the events of Return of the Jedi. The graphic novel plays fair with it's audience. There are no last minute saves or previously unheard of force powers. Mara makes good use of local resources, relying on her powers only when absolutely necessary. She's a sexy kick-ars fem fatal and a smart capable heroine all in one. The art style, while not photorealistic, serves the needs of the story wellIt was interesting after reading about her in the Timo [...]

    6. I discovered Mara Jade when I was younger and I had a load of Star Wars action figures. I always liked the her- she was pretty badass looking, with her catsuit, her lightsabre and her red hair- and when I found this graphic novel, I had to snatch it up.I didn't know any stories of her, no idea of her origins or where she'd come from so, if nothing else, this book was a good education for me.Maybe someone who was more familiar with the Star Wars universe or Mara Jade's story arc could give you a [...]

    7. MARA JADE It was nice to have a change of perspective with STAR WARS normally you follow the hero this time you followed the villain who becomes an anti hero at the end of the novel. The story takes place during Return Of The Jedi and follows Emperors Hand Mara Jade as she at first tries to assassinate Luke Skywalker only to fail and is given another task while the events of JEDI take place. Once the emperor dies she is tasked to one final mission as an Hand and she will finish it but will she s [...]

    8. While at times we must stop and think about the thin line between skill and luck, it is clear that Mara Jade is a truly resourceful assassin. The narration is minimally invasive and we can focus on Jade's own worries. She does seem to doubt her abilities plenty but, given her situation, it is understandable to be a little out of it. Overall, it's a very entertaining read. It's nice to see a strong female character in the Star Wars universe, especially an Imperial assassin (just my two cents).

    9. My main argument against this was that I wish there was more to it. I guess comic books may not have much depth, (I haven't read many) but I wish they expanded more upon her past, which I think is the most interesting part. The artwork was good and I didn't mind the storyline, but I think I would have been more interested in Mara Jade - what she did when she was an assassin as opposed to Mara Jade - waitress and fighter who has nothing better to do. Two stars may be a bit harsh.

    10. It's a been a long time since I remembering hearing about Mara Jade. I forgot how incredible a character she is. So resourceful, powerful, intelligent, etc. Many books could be written about her. Yes, it's been a long time, but I am just as excited about this as I was when I first came upon Mara Jade.

    11. Mara Jade gets her start here in these graphic novels and then later moves on to trilogy stardom. She is possibly my favorite character in the Star Wars EU. She also got me started on comic books in general. And my computer's named after her. Can I spell it out any more clearly? Although not all of the EU books have done her justice, Mara Jade is always a mysterious force to be reckoned with!

    12. A nice collection of the always awesome Mara Jade. The plot features Mara Jade delivering her own style of justice while acting as the Emperor's Hand. I'm not a huge fan of the artwork, but it's good and adds to the story. A fun look at Mara during the Empire.

    13. An afternoon beach read: Of all the Star Wars Expanded Universe authors, I like Zahn the best. This story's nowhere near as satisfying as his novels, and I think he's limited by the graphic format, but it offers a little more peek into the Mara Jade character and her backstory.

    14. Mara Jade is the Emperors hand, her last mission was to kill a crime lord. After the Emperor dies her life is in danger and she needs to rediscover herself. This is a decent story and has an intriguing look at the way the Empire runs. A good read.

    15. This is actually a Graphic Novel.While I am not normally into Graphic Novels, this one was pretty good, as it gives more insight into the character of Mara Jade and her abilities. Well drawn and well written, it was really fun to read, despite it being short.

    16. a nice introduction to Mara Jade, the art by ezquerra is decent, but I find some of the alien designs a bit tepid and the story dragged a bit.

    17. Solid filler story for Mara Jade.Nothing groundbreaking, but solid entertainment. I love Mara Jade, and the presence of Ysanne Isard was welcome. Now part of Legends.

    18. One of the best stories about Mara Jade out there. And yes, since you asked, I do happen to dress up as Mara Jade and go to Star Wars conventions. Signed by Tim Zahn at Celebration VI!

    19. Mara Jade is dangerous woman on her final mission - to kill Luke Skywalker. Thankfully she kills his clone and finally Luke meets a woman that he can spend his life with.

    20. I quite like it. It's pretty good for a Star Wars comic. Not amazing as comics go in general, but for Star Wars fans looking for comics, I can recommend this one.

    21. Not bad story, felt a bit long. I did like the premise this novel and I am particularly interested in the insight of Mara Jade's character from first person perspective.
