Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

The graphic novel of Star Wars: Episode III, Revenge of the Sith is a solid representation of the highly anticipated conclusion to the most popular film epic in history. Picking up the action from Episode II, Attack of the Clones as well as the animated Clone Wars series, Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and his apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, pursue General Grievous into space after the droid kidnapped Supreme Chancellor Palpatine. It's just the latest maneuver in the ongoing Clone Wars between the Republic and the Separatist forces led by former Jedi turned Sith Lord Count Dooku. On another front, Master Yoda leads the Republic's clone troops against a droid attack on the Wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk. And like the movie, the action takes a quantum leap up when the Sith Lord in hiding unleashes his long-simmering plot to take over the Republic, and an integral part of that plan is to turn Anakin away from the Jedi and toward the Dark Side of the Force. Unless you've been living under a rock the last 10 years, you know that Anakin will transform into the dreaded Darth Vader and face an ultimate showdown with his mentor, but that doesn't matter. In fact, a great part of the fun is knowing where things will wind up but finding out how they'll get there. The end of this prequel trilogy also should inspire fans to want to see the original movies again, but this time not out of frustration at the new ones. Rather, it's the fond memories Episode III will trigger as it ties up threads to the originals in tidy little ways. But best of all, it seems like for the first time we actually care about what happens and who it happens to.

The 96-page comic adaptation by Miles Lane and Doug Wheatley (Star Wars Empire, Superman, and The Incredible Hulk, among others) is attractive but obviously has to take some short cuts from the 137-minute film. The action scenes also are less dramatic than the Clone Wars graphic novel series. But it's a coup that this adaptation includes a late Yoda scene that was not in the film but is already rumored to be an extra on the inevitable DVD. --David Horiuchi

I enjoyed this book, but that's because I have a fondness for graphic novels and am a fan of Star Wars.

This book shows how manipulative and untrustworthy Senator Palpatine was, and how Anakin's pride and fear led him to make disastrous decisions.
M. Heiss
If you really, really can't wait until the movie comes out then I definitely suggest you pick up this book.

Format: Paperback
Even at 96 pages it's hard to really adapt a full length novel and movie into a Graphic novel format but Dark Horse once again does their usual stellar job. This of course adapts the final part to Lucas's prequel Star Wars trilogy as the Clone War comes to an end and we see how Anakin Skywalker is seduced over to the Dark Side of the Force. The artwork of Doug Wheatley really made this work for me. Vibrant and yet subtle. The depth of shading and lighting was among the best I've ever seen and fits a sci-fi setting so very well. I mean just check out the rays of sunlight that filter down from above. It's just breathtaking! Wheatley did a magnificent job of capturing the essence of all the characters.

If you really, really can't wait until the movie comes out then I definitely suggest you pick up this book. It's why I didn't give any spoilers away because I simply could not wait but didn't want to spoil it for others. Highly recommended!

_I read the Dark Horse graphic novel adaptation before I saw both The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones. In both cases the adaptation was perfect- it was like seeing the story boards for the films. I am glad to say that in my opinion this third effort lives up to the first two. You can see the film in your mind. Not only that, but you can take time to really absorb all the intricate details from panel to panel.

_I admit that I was a little nervous about how Lucas would wrap up the prequels. I didn't need to be, for this caps them off with the mythic power of the original films. I couldn't imagine a more powerful or fitting close. I sure that Joseph Campbell would have approved, also. We are shown the true nature of Evil, as well as, the true meaning of Good. There is no ambiguity here.

_Personally, my favorite bit was the nod to shamanism and its role in preserving the Jedi tradition.....

Format: Paperback
This is a great comic adaption to the final "Star Wars" film "Revenge Of The Sith". Miles Lane & Doug Wheatley give a respectful presentation of the script from George Lucas.

Like the other "Star Wars" comic adaptions, this ranks in second place, with the novelazation, as to actually seeing the films (nothing beats that).

The artwork to "Sith" is outstanding & is the best since the "Empire" & "Jedi" adaptions.

The only down side is that action sequences are limited & with some last minute film-tweaking by George Lucas, this usually means that the comic does or doesn't have something that was or wasn't in the film.

In this case, deleted scenes from the movie "Sith" are represented here in the graphic novel (much the sameway that Jabba the Hutt's first appearance to "Star Wars" fans was in the comic adaption to "Star Wars" in 1977), while some action sequences, like the Artoo-Detoo/Battle Droid scuffle at the beginning of the film, aren't included in the comic. The deleted scenes include the birth of the Rebel Alliance & a small shot of Yoda excepting his exile on Dagobah.

The artwork is great & represents the characters & the actors who portray them quite well.

"Revenge Of The Sith" was originally released in a four part miniseries released by "Dark Horse Comics" with cover artwork done by Dave Dorman (which is also included in the graphic novel).

I was lucky enough to purchase the limited hardback edition to "Revenge Of The Sith" & if you have the opportunity to pick one up, I highly reccomend it.

"Revenge Of The Sith" is a great graphic novel that is one the best of the "Star Wars" comic adaptions and won't dissapoint.

Format: Paperback
Don't get me wrong - I LOVE Star Wars, but what we are reviewing here is not the plot, but rather the quality of the comic book. I have seen the movie twice now, and the plot is definitely not lacking, but the comic book adaptation of the film is a poor one at best. It transformed what was roughly a 10 minute scene of Anakin and Obi-Wan flying around into 2 or 3 pages. That's with each page containing about six drawings. This comic book crams a 2 and a half hour movie into what seems like less than half the time. The overall feeling of this just makes the plot seem extremely RUSHED, and I understand that it was probably necessary to keep it from being too thick a book, but maybe whoever made the comic book should have been a little more concerned about the quality of his product rather than saving his publishers a few more pages of printing per item.

On a side note, I enjoyed the inclusion of Quinlan Vos, even though it was only 2 or 3 drawings, and probably wasn't his best moment.

Publishers should worry more about the quality of their products rather than how they can manufacture the most of them in the cheapest way possible.

Kudos to George Lucas for a fantastic finale to his series.

Rating: 4.5 stars.
EPIC READ! Awesome story and super good drawings.

Anakin is a Jedi. Anakin wants to be powerful and take over the galaxy for the Emperor. The Emperor tells Anakin and the clones to kill all the Jedi. They kill the Jedi. Then Obi-wan fights Anakin. Obi-wan wins, but Anakin survives and turns into Darth Vadar.

OVERALL, I think this book is great for children 7-years old and up.

I would recommend reading the whole series.
