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.

I am a huge fan of clone wars. I am also a graphic artist (so you know my background). I bought it as I loved the cover, but the drawings inside are just ugly. I had not reviewed before because I was hoping to have time to make my remake of these drawings, but I haven't had enough spare time. The poor quelity of the drawings distracted me from the story that does not look so bad. I normally buy comics for its visuals, and then if I like it, I will buy the rest for the story. In this case, I got a huge disappointment.

Perhaps someone who is not expecting the same quality of the cover may feel it is ok, or someone who does not care about the drawings may be happy. But I am not. There are plenty of great artists out there. For example, Mass Effect comics are state of the art, but unfortunately it looks like these comics took the dark path.

I recall there was a 2003 clone wars animated series. If the idea of these printed comics was to emulate that style, they lost me. This is just my personal opinion, and someone may disagree. But certainly disagreements will not change my opinion. I will continue loving Clone wars by Dave Filoni and buying the Clone wars toys, but as for comics, i will skip the shelf where Clone wars comics are. Hugely disappointed.

Well, if such crappy drawings can get famous, perhaps my arts are not a lost cause, and someday I may kick some asses commercially and win some fans over Star wars or may be some days they may replace them with my arts. Dreaming is cheap.

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".

My son took this out from his school library. We returned it, apparently they never got it. After 6 months of back and forth, I was so annoyed that I just bought a copy to shut the whining librarian up.

She found it first at the library, and then I bought it for her. She spends hours looking at it, asking what is being said. And then she remembers and repeats and repeats. Master Yoda is her favorite. I know it's not for kids, but she really enjoys this book.
