Product Description

Product Description

Inspired by the Cartoon Network's Clone Wars cartoons, this series tells new stories of heroism and villainy in the same stripped-down visual style. In the rolling asteroid rings above a remote planet, General Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker play a deadly game of cat and mouse against Separatist droid fighters-and a squadron of highly skilled human pilots who have pledged their guns to Count Dooku. Find out why Anakin is known as the greatest pilot in the galaxy! Also in this volume, Jedi Master Luminara Unuli and her Padawan Barriss Offee race against time to evacuate farmers and their families before the droid forces of General Grievous overrun their village. When Barriss and her squad of clone troopers are caught in the path of the enemy army, only fast thinking and steel resolve can save the day! Incredible action, hot art, and lightning-fast pacing are coming your way in this new take on the Star Wars galaxy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent adventure stories for younger readers 28 Feb 2014
By No More Mr. Mice Guy TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
This is an excellent 84-page collection of three comic-book stories for younger readers who are interested in the adventures of the Star Wars – Clone Wars characters. The style of the artwork is heavily influenced by the animated Clone Wars TV / DVD series. The three stories feature different characters or teams. The types of story vary for each set of characters, with varying mixtures of comedy, action and adventure.

THE SPOILER ZONE
“Skywalkers” – 40pp – opens with Luke and Ben on Tatooine, before the events of the Original Star Wars film, as Ben reminisces about Luke’s father and himself in the Clone wars – where Annakin really does become a sky-walker, as they have to fight an aerial battle without the aid of aircraft.

“Hide in Plain Sight” – 26pp – sees Luminara Unduli and Barriss Offee defending a civilian settlement against a Droid attack with only a small force of Clone Troopers. They have to rely on subterfuge to outwit their enemies.

“Run Mace Run” – 20pp – sees Mace Windu alone against a Droid force who are defending a new ‘planet destroyer’ weapon that Count Dooku is testing. Can he stop it before the planet is destroyed…?

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong second volume in the series 2 Dec 2006
By Andrew Pruette - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures is an ongoing series from Dark Horse comics that takes its inspiration from the extremely successful Clone Wars cartoon series. This inspiration is visible in both the short, action-packed nature of the stories as well as in the art style itself. Volume Two contains three stories as follows:

1) "Skywalkers" - Like Volume One, this book kicks off with an Obi-Wan/Anakin adventure. Their aerial antics defending the planet Terra Sool stretch belief about as far as this format can take it, but the cartoon did the same thing on more than one occasion. The chief distinguishing feature of this tale is the use of scenes from A New Hope to bookend it, making for an effective emotional underpinning to the action.

2) "Hide in Plain Sight" - Jedi Master Luminara Unduli and her Padawan Barriss Offee defend Nadiem against a Separatist attack personally coordinated by General Grievous. Great story all around, with a perfect balance of dry humor and fun Jedi action. The art in this one is particularly well done: the panels are jam-packed with small background details.

3) "Run Mace Run" - Shorter than the first two stories, Mace is involved in a nasty gunship crash on a Separatist-controlled planet. He must shake off the effects and stop a planet-destroying weapon from being tested. Yoda's Zen-like advice wafts through his head along the way. Not much substance to this story, but it does have a cool ending.

The first three volumes of this series use lower-quality paper than volumes IV and up and present ads for Dark Horse/Gentle Giant products between each of the stories. The choice to eliminate the ads and improve the book quality for subsequent volumes was a good one and makes the later books feel less disposable.

Clone Wars Adventures Volume Two continues the high standard set by the first volume.

5.0 out of 5 stars MUST-READ FOR STAR WARS FANS!!!!! 14 Aug 2008
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Though there are only three small stories in this volume, they are packed with plenty of action, adventure, and some ties to the original movie. The first story has scenes from A New Hope at the beginning and end. They each have something to do with the story. The third story involves Mace Windu battling Seperatist battle droids, and has a very small link to A New Hope. Even if you are not a fan of the prequel trilogy, this book will probably be enjoyable to you. If you are a fan of the prequel trilogy or both trilogies, you will probably like this book. It features General Grievous, plenty of battle droids, and eack story includes the amazing exploits of the Jedi. This is a very good read for Star Wars fans, young and old. Also, just a small warning, the cover of the book may have Mace Windu on top of brocken battle droids blowing smoke off his lightsaber. I don't know if all copies have that, or if only some do but be aware that the cover of the book may differ from the picture on this website if you but it.

5.0 out of 5 stars STAR WARS & COMIC FANS WILL ADORE THESE BOOKS; 100 STARS ISN'T TOO MANY! 9 July 2014
By JON - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Being a big Star Wars fan (though I have mixed feelings about the prequels, and more about the new sequels, as J.J. Abrams ruined Star Trek for me), I love these comic books, and, although my kindle has a black-and-white screen, I know what color the characters are, and I have no problem reading the comics or seeing the artwork. I like that the kindle blows up every frame to kindle screen size to make it easily read on the small kindle, and the stories are always fun and lively and action-filled. Star Wars fans who didn't like the prequels as much as the original trilogy (like me) will still love these comics. The artwork looks simple (I always feel like I could have drawn them similarly, and I can't really draw), and the stories and words are also simple, but the outcome looks fantastic and fresh and very, very fun. In my thirties, and always a fan of comic books, I hugely enjoyed these comics, all of them that I have purchased, and any comic book fan, Star Wars fan, or someone just looking for action-packed reading, will adore these books. I could gush forever, and still gush more, as these comics are the best comics I have read in a long time, and the kindle makes them easy to read. Also, I like that these comic books are for any age, and don't have adult subject matter like a lot of Marvel, Dark Horse, and DC comics do, nowadays. I wish I could give them 100 Stars!
