A good comic, but nothing really stands out.

Background: Victories and Sacrifices, released in September 2003, collects issues 51-53 of Republic and the second issue of the Jedi series of one-shots: Republic: The New Face of War (2 issues, March-April 2003) was written by Haden Blackman and pencilled by Tomás Giorello.

Wasn't as enjoyable as the first volume in the series.

This graphic novel contains issues 51-53 of Star Wars: Republic and the special Star Wars: Jedi-Shaak Ti, which I already reviewed as an individual piece. This graphic novel features the sections, "The New Face of War," "Blast Radius," and the aforementioned Shaak Ti story, which is actually subtitled "Catspaw." (see my other review for Shaak Ti).

"The New Face of War" drops the Jedi onto a moon that Gungans were colonizing, only to find that the Gungans were all brutally murdered. Brutally meani

Not the best Star Wars stories I've read. When a story is pretty straightforward and not very complex it can be pretty good if there's other good aspects like characterization or natural deepness. Unfortunately the three stories in this volume are rather arbitrary, not very meaningful, and feel plainly mediocre.
Also what's really ticking me off is how weak the pre-empire Jedi are. You'd think that in their 20+ years of training they would be competent at dealing with the dangers of a mission th

The first three interconnected comics here were all over the place and as uninteresting as the bland death-crazed villain "Durge" (A grievous prototype?) who is introduced. It's all about setting up Asajj Ventress as a villainess, and she's kinda cool, so it's all good. The longer story focussing on a particular Jedi, this time Shaak Ti, is again the stronger and thoroughly enjoyable addition. Basically a let's go and save a planet by taking out some shields and killing the bad guy story, but if ...more

Sur la lune de Naboo, un colonie de Gungan a cessé de donner signe de vie. Les Jedi envoient donc Anakin et Obi-Wan pour voir ce qui se passe. Ils découvrent que les séparatistes ont libéré un gaz toxique qui a tué la colonie. Ils font aussi connaissance avec Durge et Asajj Ventress. Dans la seconde partie, Obi-Wan et quatre collègues Jedi partent à la recherche d'un antidote au gaz toxique que possède Asajj Ventress. Dans la troisième partie, la République essaie de libérer la planète Brentaal ...more

This is the second in the Clone wars series - and I must admit things are getting interesting - they are certainly not afraid to kill characters off although at times it does feel like they are introducing them just to be canon fodder but then again you can accuse nearly every science fiction series of that - what was it said about the red shirts in Star trek. Anyway the reason I enjoyed this book is - again without giving away the storyline but it is interesting in how the war takes the peacefu ...more

A set of three connected short tales from the Clone Wars era. They take place after the Geonosis battle and before the last of the new films (Episode 3). Art was decent, and the plot was pretty good. Overall, a nice quick read. If you like Star Wars in the Clone Wars era, you will probably like these and get through them quickly. Of the three tales, I liked the last one best with Jedi Master Shaak Ti, who does ponder what the wars will do not only to the Republic, but to the Jedi as well.

This volume has 2 main stories. One is the introduction of a new separatist weapon and more background on Ventress. The other concerns an attack on a planet that goes wrong for the republic. I like the way they constantly question whether the war is the right thing for the jedi. There's some nice character moments with jedi that are not as well known as others. A good read.

Pretty good. I'll be sure to remember Haden Blackman's name - he wrote the first story arc in this volume. The art is also pretty good.

The second arc about Shaak Ti written by John Ostrander is ok. It crams a lot of things in which can be a be bit much. Likewise, the art tries to cram in too much - there's no breathing space.

Like most comics, these stories would have benefited from more space to develop characters and story. This volume focuses on wrapping up the chemical weapon storyline from the first, and a story centered on Jedi Master Shaak Ti.

A good way to kick off the second volume of the Clone Wars. Sadly, the Clone Wars lasted a very long time, and the battles depicted in this graphic novel just touch on the fact that the war will cost a lot of Jedi's, Clones, civilians, and even politicians their lives.

Recommends it for: Star Wars fans, those disappointed by the prequels
The art could be better (especially in the first part), and the storyline (while good!) is not as compelling as that of Volume 1. Still a quite good book.

Very good. A dramatic turn in that we see Durge make an appearance and with the whole struggle to stop a biological weapon. B+
