Darkhorse did a most excellent job on this graphic novel. It is practically a story board for the film- you can SEE it in your mind's eye. As for the story itself, I think it is the best since the original Episode 4. There are so many subplots and plot twists that it is impossible to be bored- combined with the what should be a barrage of special effects and exotic sets, it should be overwhelming.
It isn't all special effects, though. There are some powerful dramatic scenes here. I can see where some of them (like the last stand of the Jedi) may go down in cinematic history. There is also IDEALISM here. It is like George Lucas is winning back the soul of his creation after certain politicians and arms merchants coopted the Star Wars name for their own agenda....

Format: Paperback
I received the novelizations of Episode One and Two as gifts. I read Episode One, and was a little disappointed with the story telling and art. I was expecting more of the same for Episode Two, but was pleasantly surprised.
First off, the story telling is vastly superior. The action flows much more smoothly from panel to panel and makes much more sense. In addition, they have included written narrative in some panels to tell the reader where the action is taking place, or describe transitions that might not make sense otherwise. The lack of a good narrative really hurt the novelization of Episode One.
Second, the art is vastly superior to that in the novelization of Episode One. The climatic Jedi battle in the arena looks fantastic with large, nearly page consuming pictures in some cases. The action scenes look much better with more dynamic poses from the characters. Not to mention, the artists for Episode Two seem to do a better job at drawing facial expressions.
I'm guessing the novel was drawn before the final version of the film was complete. There are some minor scenes omitted (such as some events that occurred during the last third of the movie), and some action sequences that come off differently (a key light sabre duel comes to mind). However, the spirit of the film is still in the graphic novel.
Personally, I prefer R. A. Salvatore's novelization to the Graphic novel, but I tend to read more novels than comic books. I'd recommend this as a visual reference and supplement to the novelization or to any Star Wars fan or collector.

Format: Paperback
Do you want ot read a great series book that was so good that it was made into a movie? Then pick up the book Starwars 2: Attack of the Clones. Every chapter there is something going on, even in the first chapter. It has loads of mysteries and fighting. The Jedis have to find an assassin. Even if you have seen the movie it is still an exciting book to read. if you want a few more details than the movie had, you better definitely read this book. It is not hard to read and is fun to read also. The book is Sci-fi and is very creative. It takes you away to a far away land, in a different galaxy. There are wars, guns, and robots. If you like all of these things, be sure to pick up this book!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This comic book nowadays called graphic novels, is quite similar to the movie, maybe too much. While it leaves out key spoiler scenes it does recreate the feel and sequences of the movie quite well. The dialogs are of course adapted to the medium and the drawings are quite simple and straightforward, yet beautiful. One of the flaws of this graphic novel is that it does not add much to the plot or the pciture itself, while it could have been used to tell the unseen part of the movie, it just recreates it the most faithfully and accurately possible. I think it's more a souvenir or collectible than a real comic book. Worth getting if you collect SW stuff.

I loved this book, but it skipped a few parts from the movie. The book is worth it whether or not you saw the movie. The drawings are really artistic. The lightsaber duels seem especially realistic. The words are easy to read and understand.

By Jeb Nome on April 24, 2002
Format: Paperback
If anyone was worried about the Star Wars franchise, relax. Because if this graphic novel translates well into film (or digital videotape as the case is with this installment) than we are in for something more intense than the previous four films have been.
This graphic novel outlines the story quite well and tells us nicely how the Republic makes its subtle change from a democracy to a dictatorship. Obi-Wan Kenobi continues his training of Anakin Skywalker and unwittingly walks into galactic civil war as the mechanisations of the Sith engulf the galaxy.
To say more would be telling. But I will say the art in this graphic novel is very well done. The ships, the characters, the aliens, and especially Jango Fett are rendered very well. My only complaint is that I remember the "Empire Strikes Back" version done by Marvel Comics, and I miss that style. But...I guess I'm getting old.
Nonetheless, this is a worthy catch, even if it lacks the old comic book feel that I remember when I was seven years old.

Format: Paperback
This is a graphic novel of the movie THE ATTACK OF THE CLONES. That pretty much sums everything up. However, being a graphic novel there are two major elements the book can be judged upon, art and story.
The art is very photorealistic and cinematic. There is a lot of detail and color. I must admit, I like the artistic style of the Marvel comics of the original trilogy much better than the photorealistic style of this book. However, for the style it is illustrated in, it is done quite well.
Story wise, the book stays pretty faithful to the movie. There are a few omissions from the film here, but there are also a few added scenes here that are not in the movie. A lot of the dialogue is taken directly from the film's script and though cheesy, reminds one of the language of the original trilogy.
This is something that most Star Wars fans will enjoy having and reading and works well as a memento to someone who hasn't seen ATTACK OF THE CLONES to perhaps get them excited enough to do so.
