To many, Darth Maul is the most exciting part of The Phantom Menace movie. In fact, he's one of the best Star Wars villains of all time. Unfortunately for fans, though, the character doesn't get nearly enough time in the cinematic spotlight. The five-part Marvel Darth Maul comic book series rectifies that in a big way. In it, readers learn more about the vicious Sith's background - what drives him and from where his motivations stem.
The Star Wars comic books open up the rich mythos of the universe. The films, however, introduce so many fascinating characters that they simply cannot give the personas the screen-time they deserve. That's where the Star Wars extended universe comes in. Because of it, some of the best characters in the Star Wars franchise get a chance to shine outside of the film endeavors (although the spinoffs are starting to address this). Darth Maul stands out among those characters.
Here's everything you need to know about this dark Sith's comic series.
