The Return of Darth Maul! In More ways than one.
Since Phantom Menace, the fans have been asking for more Darth Maul, a character that had a huge impact for someone who had so few actual lines on screen. On top of that Lucasfilm Re-Released Phantom Menace in 3D and teasing us all year with commercials like the one above. Well this week we finally get to see him return on Clone Wars this week. Personally I can't wait, because over the past in comics we have seen Maul resurrected to fight Darth Vader, and with the cybernetic legs to hunt down Obi Wan. But now, it looks like that what if style comic book has grown some legs.... the robot kind.
But if you can't get enough then I would HIGHLY suggest picking up a copy of Darth Plagueis. For Die Hard Star Wars fans, this is a MUST READ. It could be considered Episode 0.5, because if you had any questions about Phantom Menace, everything is answered. Plus it tells a great back story on Darth Maul and Palpatine, how they met and began training. There is even a new book for kids out there by DK books, Darth Maul Sith Apprentice, so new media isn't focused solely on the dark stories for adults.
