Crash Course is the second volume in a quarterly, graphic-novella series by Dark Horse and is based on The Clone Wars as presented in last year's film and the current TV series. In this tale, Anakin Skywalker and his young Padawan Ahsoka Tano try to uncover a Separatist spy by gong undercover as a podracing team. So you think - Well, Anakin has done this before. Nope, Ahsoka is the driver this time. As was true in Shipyards of Doom, the first volume in this series, the story in this book is interesting, the characters are familiar to us, and the book looks good. I knocked it down by one star only because I found the story to be slightly convoluted.

However, I am pleased that Dark Horse is doing this series. The books tie in nicely with the TV shows currently on The Cartoon Network, and I look forward to Volume 3 scheduled to come out in May.

Reading the synopsis on the back of the book, I figured I wouldn't like it that much because I wasn't a big fan of Podracing in Star Wars. I was surprised to learn, however, that this book contains much more than just that. (Plus, the podracing turned out to be quite exiting!:)) Without revealing too much, the story is about a spyring working for the CIS. An important file is stolen and is in the possesion of a podracer. Anakin, Ahsoka, Rex, and R2-D2 have to find the file and stop Dooku's agent, Asajj Ventress, from getting it first. This was an exiting read. I only wish it was a little longer! (And I walked away from reading it liking podracing just a little bit more!)

Shipyards of Doom is the first volume in a quarterly, graphic-novella series by Dark Horse and is based on The Clone Wars as presented in last year's film and the current TV series. If you are reading this review, I assume you are OK with the graphic novel format that seems to be rapidly increasing in popularity. We have come a long ways from the old comic books. Now the books are printed on heavy stock as trade paperbacks, and the graphics are uniformly excellent.

The story in this book deals with Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Ahsoka Tano (Anakin's Padawan) and their mission to infiltrate the Banking Clan Shipyards and destroy Separatist warships under construction. Without a successful conclusion to the mission, the Separatist forces may begin to overwhelm the Republic armies.

The story is a good one, the characters are presented well, and the graphics are great fun to look at. Give Shipyards of Doom a try.

My son loves this book. It's like reading an episode of the Clone Wars TV show.

This is sort of a 'tween' comic book - the art and story lines don't quite equal the general Star Wars comics (Legacy, Rebellions, etc.) but at the same time, the lightsaber maiming and impaling keep this comic from being classified as "for little kiddies".

The Colossus of Destiny is the fourth in Dark Horse Comics' series of Clone Wars quarterly digests. This one is very Mace Windu focussed and tells of the Jedi's return to a planet (named Simcodia) he helped liberate in his younger days. This time out, the planet is trapped between the Republic and the Separatists because it's one of the few places to obtain a rare mineral (not super original, there). One of the planet's political leaders, a young Prince, decides to awaken an ancient, legendary weapon called the Ardana Shadex. Basically, a giant Sentinel-style robot. There's lots of jumping around and fighting, though the comic tries to make us feel for the supposed moral dilemmas that Mace is put through as a warrior during the Clone Wars.
Verdict: average example of the line.

The Wind Raiders of Taloraan is the latest in Dark Horses' digest-sized Clone Wars graphic novels. Very much in the tone of the animated series, this one stars the standard trio: Obi-Wan, Anakin, and Ahsoka. The story has to do with negotiations on a gas-mining planet (Taloraan) on which both the Republic and the Separatists hope to plant a flag. As with the other recent Clone Wars products, the Republic is completely good, the Separatists are completely evil (and stupid), and every thing has a nice, happy ending. I think maybe if I were a nine-year-old girl I would think seeing Ahsoka fly around on a giant bird was cool, but as I am not, I didn't.

Not as good as Dark Horse's other series, but since Lucasfilm has instructed other licensees to treat The Clone Wars as a distinct franchise, that might have something to do with it. The artwork is a bit like the original "Clone Wars Adventures" series of digest-sized comics, although less stylized, unless you count that it's 2D representations of 3D representations of 2D representations of actors. Also apparent is that they seem to have forgotten that Anakin has a scar at this point, not that continuity is ever much of a concern in the show. The story is the standard perfunctory "believe in yourself or something" plot.

As always, the Clone Wars digest series has noy failed to delight! This story follows the adventures of Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Ahsoka as they try to make a treaty on the world of Taloraan. Things go wrong, however, when the CIS intervenes! I completely enjoyed this book and recommend it to Star wars fans!
