Getting cut in half by Obi-Wan Kenobi and being rejected by his former Sith master Darth Sidious isn't going to defeat Darth Maul. In fact, it only makes him mad enough to take on the galaxy: with an army of Mandalorians!
With his Shadow Collective army stalled, Darth Maul calls on Mother Talzin for help and is sent reinforcements: the deadly Nightbrothers! Maul is ready again to take on the Separatist droid army, Count Dooku, and General Grievous - in a trio of simultaneous battles!
Darth Maul has captured Darth Sidiousís new apprentice! Mother Talzin and Maul attempt to sway Count Dooku to their cause, revealing surprising facts about Maulís past. But an attack by an elite Jedi strike force throws everyoneís plans into chaos!
Count Dooku is possessed by the spirit of Mother Talzin! Darth Maulís Shadow Collective is shattered! The Separatists attack! And Darth Sidious himself enters the fight!

This story occurs approximately 20 years before Episode IV: A New Hope.

Review by Darth Kondorr, Poland, 2016:

"After a rather disappointing Obi-Wan and Anakin comic book, set shortly before Attack of the Clones, we get the first truly amazing entry in the new canon, that ironically is now the only "canon" entry from Dark Horse Comics. Now what you need to know, is that this is not a standalone story. It is possible to enjoy it on its own, but I really encourage you to watch The Clone Wars first. Below this review I have listed only those episodes that feed into this comic, if you do not want to see it all.
"Following is a very short summary of the show, spoiling only the obvious: Darth Maulís reappearance was cause for much turmoil among the galaxy's dark forces. Caught between the scheming Sith factions and the newly reborn warrior spirit of the Mandalrions was only one shimmer of light: Obi Wan. That explosive finale, that might be the best 60 minutes of Star Wars ever created, is the jumping off point for this equally amazing story. Well, the story is pretty simple, but anything that involves Sith on Sith on Mandalorians is instantly amazing. Reading this, I could hear Witwers twisted voice of Maul, the dark charismatic Dooku and the diabolic Grievous. It is incredible how Darth Maul grew from a mere henchmen at Sidious's side, to a true schemer. Although the art is amazing, I can only imagine how great the presented battles would have been if they were animated.
"On a side note, I find it funny, how Filoni managed to make the Fetts Non-Mandalorians, while introducing the first Kast to the new canon as a true Death Watch Mando (for those that don't know... Jodo Kast was a Boba Fett imposter, now the Fett's seem to be "wannabe" Mandos). This is a true gem for The Clone Wars fans and Darth Maul fans alike and shows that Filoni is the best thing that happened to Star Wars since Kirshner."
These are the recommended episodes:
Season. 2 - Ep.12 The Mandalore Plot; Ep.13 Voyage of Temptation; Ep.14 Duchess of Mandalore
Season. 3 - Ep.5 Corruption; Ep.6 The Academy; Ep. 12 Nightsisters; Ep. 13 Monster; Ep. 14 Witches
Season. 4 - Ep. 14 A Friend in Need; Ep. 19 Massacre; Ep. 20 Bounty; Ep. 21 Brothers; Ep. 22 Revenge
Season. 5 - Ep. 1 Revival; Ep. 14 Eminence; Ep. 15 Shades of Reason; Ep. 16 The Lawless
Season. 6: - The Disappeared parts 1 & 2

Rating: 5 / 5
