Star Wars Adventures Issue 19 Comic Book Review


“Star Wars Adventures” issue 19 takes readers back to the Clone Wars.

The 19th issue of IDW’s ongoing “Star Wars Adventures” comic book series kicks off with a Cavan Scott scripted story titled “Roger Roger.” This Clone Wars tale finds Captain Rex and General Kenobi forming an unlikely bond between a malfunctioning Battle Droid who aids them in battle. It’s a very fast paced and simple story, but it fits right in with the Clone Wars series. Basically, the story does its job and you can’t ask for anything more than that. The artwork by Mauricet in combination with the coloring work by Charlie Kirchoff makes for a colorful and exciting tale that is packed with action.

The second story here is “Tales From Wild Space: The Big March” by writer, artist, and colorist Nick Brokenshire. In this story, Emil and Co. head to the Shosho Outpost on an adventure and the droids tell a tale of the misadventures of a Battle Droid that gets in a heap of trouble on an exotic planet. The vibrant and wild artwork can’t make up for this moralistic story that doesn’t feel like “Star Wars.” It’s not that the plot doesn’t feel like SW (it does), it’s what we see that doesn’t feel like SW. The creatures the droid encounters feels like a cross between “Little Shop of Horrors” and some weird 80s cartoon. It definitely takes you out of the SW universe.

The comic concludes with a “Dispatches From Wild Space” segment featuring an Emil message and a spotlight on the Battle Droid. Also included here is a cover art gallery and IDW comic ads.
