Knights of the Old Republic: War #2 kicks off with the Mandalorian Knights introduced in issue #1. This time Zayne has been conscripted once again, but for the Mandies. It’s interesting to see Zayne in this role because it’s not very different at all from his previous stint with the Republic. He’s once again trying to save lives, both on his side and the other. How will a pacifist hold up in the Mando ranks? At least he’s not alone.

John adds a little humor to issue #2, and good ole Captain Morvis helps deliver. But the main focus of the issue is all Mandos. The reader gets to see the Mandos in action with Zayne and Morvis both dealing with their new stations in life. We also get to see Dorjander’s reasons for joining the Mandalorians. Still, with all the Mandalorian attention, it’s good to see some of that old humor back in play.

This issue also takes the opportunity to show more of the good side of the Mandalorians. It shows a little of their culture and how they embrace that. By showing  Ko Sornell’s family, it helps humanize them. It also adds a new dimension to the overall war. Now the war looks more like a battle between two sides rather than between good guys and bad guys.

This issue ends with a hard choice from Zayne. Will he help Dorjander Kace, or will he stand against him? Overall, I really loved how the story turned out here. The art was pretty good, and there were some nice shots highlighting certain scenes. Definitely a four out of five metal bikinis.
