Darth Maul #2

Learning that a Jedi Padawan is being held by the Xrexus Cartel, Darth Maul ignores the explicit orders of his master and makes his way to Nar Shaddaa looking for answers. Unable to reveal his true nature to those he needs to beat information out of, Maul instead hires some help in his search for Jedi.

Fans of Star Wars: The Clone Wars will likely get a kick out of seeing both Cad Bane and Aurra Sing as part of the bounty hunter team Maul puts together to lead him to the auction in the Drazkel System where the Padawan Eldra Kaitis is the prize... although I doubt the Sith has any intention on paying for her. The pair provide the information Maul is looking for, but don't know who their cloaked benefactor is or why he is so interested in the event.

Aside from the appearance of a pair of familiar faces, Darth Maul #2 gives us more of Maul's inner thoughts as the series leads to his eventual face-to-face confrontation with Kaitis. With nothing between him and his revenge against the Jedi it seems the real fun is about to begin. Worth a look.
