I originally read the Dark Lords of the Sith comic series when it was released back in the 90's. At the time it seemed to be a series that was sold purely on its name (rightly so. Its a great name) but delivered a mediocre story.
Listening to the full cast audio all these years later, the story seems familiar, but with some characters missing. It feels rushed, but easy enough to follow anyway and perhaps it has benefitted from the audio medium. The beginning was a little confusing, but by the second half I found it easy to follow all of the plot lines and characters. Really its just a fun star wars story focusing on the dark side and those who turn to it.
I got this as part of a humble bundle a month or so ago and can't complain.
I listened to that recently, too, as part of the same Humble Bundle. I listened to Tales of the Jedi first. Dark Lords of the Sith comes after Tales of the Jedi chronologically, so it's easier to understand if you listen in order. The set of stories seems (and is) incomplete, because it doesn't have the conclusion of the story.

I just got it from my local library, and I saw this printed at the bottom of the CD:
"An abridgement of STAR WARS: DARK LORDS OF THE SITH. Originally released on audio by Time Warner."
Now I'm assuming due to the punctuation being a period and not a comma that what they mean by this is that the CD is an abridgement from the original comics, and not from the original Time Warner cassette release. Anyone know for sure?
