Cover Price: $18.99

The Fate of the Jedi novel series saw the revival of an ancient breed of Sith, from the days of the Lord Naga Sadow. This Lost Tribe of the Sith controlled the natives on the planet Kesh for centuries, until they finally found their way off planet, and into their old galaxy to face the Jedi Knights head on. Yet while the concept of the Lost Tribe of the Sith unfastens numerous possibilities for new stories set on the planet Kesh, the new Spiral trade paperback from Dark Horse instead delivers very little of unique value to the Expanded Universe.

It has been a few generations since the Sith Lords crash landed on Kesh, and the Tribe of the Sith have control of the main continent on the planet, populated by the native Keshiri. While the rulers work slowly and tediously for their eventual return to the stars and revenge on the galaxy, their underlings in this relatively new society strive for control and power of the Tribe itself.

Conan the Barbarian #15 is, unfortunately, the first issue in quite some time that I haven’t enjoyed more than the previous installment. I wish I could explain why, but I really can’t.

Brian Wood does a fantastic job, as usual, writing this issue, but there’s just something lacking from previous issues. I think it’s just the rare issue wherein it’s a pretty boring chapter of a good story. And when the rest of the story has been so good and exciting, this slow act, really grinds to a halt. It’s Belit’s origin story, which again, should be really good, but it’s not. Don’t get me wrong, this issue isn’t awful, it’s just not aweSOME. I’m sure Wood will be back on track with the next issue.
