3.0 out of 5 stars Obi-Wan hits the beach

This adventure is set somewhere during season 4 of the clone wars. It is one of the better clone war adventures I have read. Obi Wan, Ahsoka, and Anakin are on leave. Obi Wan spots a criminal he has vowed to bring in alone and races off ditching his friends. Trouble is the thug has back up from the planets major crime families. Can Obi Wan face them all with the reluctant help of the local bacl balled smuggler.

Yes there is a moral to the story giving this a more old school Masters of the Universe feel, but in my old age I don't mind that the plot is good, the art work is ok and even the "Saber fish" are pretty funny rather than annoying. So all in all a good little story. I don't see it having great ramifications to the Star Wars universe but enjoy able as a stand alone story.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent Clone Wars adventure, 31 Dec 2013

This review is from: Star Wars: The Clone Wars - The Smugglers Code (Paperback)
This is an excellent Clone Wars adventure comic. The style of the artwork of this 72-page comic-book is heavily influenced by the animated Clone Wars TV / DVD series. It is well-written with excellent characterisation, and we are told it takes place during Season 4 of the television series `The Clone Wars'. The story features Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano, who are ostensibly on holiday on the planet Wielu, where Obi-Wan spots an old foe who escaped from him many years before, and who ha has been searching for in vain ever since. He goes off alone in pursuit, but after a series of spectacular adventures involving the criminal underworld of the planet, he finally realises that he should not be too proud to accept help from his friends, and by setting aside his desire for personal revenge, he eventually achieves both the capture of the criminal and the destruction of many of the criminal gangs.

This review is from: Star Wars: The Clone Wars - The Smugglers Code (Paperback)
When Obi-Wan, Anakin and Ahsoka take some time off and go to Wielu, a beach resort-like planet, to relax, Obi-Wan sees a face from his past. T'Mott Zoat was a criminal that got away from him after killing his friend 20 years ago, but this time Obi-Wan won't let him get away again! Along the way he meets a smuggler, Rook Pryce, to help him navigate the treacherous and criminal landscape of the paradisiacal Wielu.

Set sometime during Season 4 of the Star Wars TV show The Clone Wars, The Smuggler's Code is a fairly decent Star Wars comic with everyone's favourite character, Obi-Wan, as the lead. The story is well-paced and has a few decent twists and turns, including some interesting additions to the Star Wars Universe like saberfish - fish like narwhals with lightsabers for noses - and its never boring.

That said, the ending has the feel of an after-school special, and the writing, while competent, is never challenging with the book feeling like its aimed at younger readers. Eduardo Ferrara's art is fine, maybe overly cartoony in places, but fits the story well.

Rook Pryce was an interesting character, fitting into the established Star Wars world by wearing a Han Solo-esque jacket, possessing a weirdly proportioned Millenium Falcon-type ship, and betraying people left and right, adhering to the smuggler's code of the title, the rather banal and cynical motto "get paid, as much as possible". Though I did wonder if Obi-Wan had been paying attention to anything that happened to him in this book when he told Rook that he'd been helpful to him on his mission, when really he'd been anything but!

The Smuggler's Code is not a comic that's going to general comics readers much, but fans of the Clone Wars show and younger Star Wars fans will probably enjoy this light-hearted adventure a lot.
