We’re looking at the next adventure book from the Star Wars comics.
Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Padmé Amidala and the goofy Jar Jar Binks embark on new adventures! As Padmé embarks on an adventure searching for a legendary artifact with Jar Jar, Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi and clone Captain Rex encounter a highly unusual robot. Meanwhile, Anakin and Jedi Master Yoda must help Yoda’s old friend hide from the Separatists.
The next volume of the adventure series brings together some short stories again. In terms of drawing technique, you’re at the usual good level, so the characters look quite plastic and detailed and the same goes for the backgrounds. Everything is colorful and nothing is left to be desired.
In terms of story, there are four of them again, although this time the theme of “adventure” is taken more literally. So this time the volume is really being used to try something new.
The first story, set shortly after the first episode called In Search of Lost Gundark, is exactly this: Jar Jar and Padmé must retrieve an ancient artifact while walking the Indy Trails. It passes through dangerous caves or over bridges. It’s all very entertaining and funny and has an equally funny resolution.
The second story takes us to the clone wars. Here, Rex and Obi-Wan meet a disabled robot and fight on their side. There was something similar in The Legends, here it’s done a little more entertainingly. You don’t have to expect big character scenes here either, but at least, unlike “back then,” you took the step and let the robot survive and continue to fight on the Republic’s side. So, on a small scale, the status quo has been shaken up a bit and it remains to be seen if Bats (no, not Batman!) will ever be seen again. However, the torsion is able to please.
The last two stories are again stories told by Emile Graf (at the time of the new trilogy). The former is set back in the Clone Wars and brings us Yoda and Anakin on a mission. As befits Yoda, Yoda can teach Anakin a little lesson here and the story about the disappearance is also something new.
The final story is about the Jedi Trials of Barriss Offee (and presumably also takes place in the Clone Wars, although you don’t get a date here). Here she shows how the trial in the dark cave on Dagobah really works. Turn off the lightsaber and seek knowledge. This has also happened before in a similar way in a different constellation, but it is well implemented here.
