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

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...more
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
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.
i liked this one better than the first, but omg i could not believe some of the carnage in this comic....pretty brutal for a comic i think is geared towards kids more....

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.
Victor Orozco
Very good. A dramatic turn in that we see Durge make an appearance and with the whole struggle to stop a biological weapon. B+
M Pereira
This is much better than volume 1. the stories are more engaging plus there are some good action scenes as well.
Daniel Rose
interesting stories and sacrafices of some lesser known jedi masters.
A good comic, but nothing really stands out.
