Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Vol. 3:
Days of Fear, Nights of Anger

Reprints Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic #13-18. Click to check out the production notes for the following issues:
It was always my intention for the title of the trade paperback to use the names of both arcs; I don't know how often that's been done in comics, but it works here. I was glad we were able to do it.
The cover features Colin Wilson's art, without the word balloons, from the cover of #16. The back cover has Brian Ching and Michael Atiyeh's cover art from #15. The two "runner-up" covers used as art inside the issue do include the word balloons.
Dark Horse did not include the text pages we did in the second year of the series; Marvel included them with its Epic Collections years later.
Check out the nice Jarael/Zayne ad in the back, harvested from their magic meeting in #3!
- There were very few changes for the trade version. There are a small number of typo catches — we fixed one of the spellings of Ralltiir from #13, for example – and we made some very small changes in emphasis, like when the soldier complains that Zayne has spilled food on him.
- HK-24 now refers to Elbee as a fifth-degree drone, rather than a fifth-class one. That terminology is more common, though class to me almost sounds more reflective of status. It’s that whole postal thing…
- Sometimes we add a (very) little line here or there to help flesh out a scene. There’s an interjection now coming from the tower that Carth buzzes in #14 now, filling in some space. There’s also a little more verbiage now when Jarael confronts the guards in the Adascorp facility.
- We pulled the italicization from "ecliptic" during the Mandalorian attack. Some readers thought it was a ship, like the Rand Ecliptic – when in fact, the reference here was intended to be astronomical.
