Star Wars Adventures: The Clone Wars: Battle Tales #3 Comic Book Review


The third issue of “Star Wars Adventures: The Clone Wars: Battle Tales” is more of the same.

Writer Michael Moreci continues the “Star Wars Adventures: The Clone Wars: Battle Tales” saga with issue 3. Commander Cody and company are attempting to free the prisoners being held by the droids, but, of course, we get another flashback tale in the middle. This time around, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Commander Cody and Padme plot to investigate the truth in regards to alleged Clone POWs on the allied world of Krystar.

In terms of the main story, there is next to no progress on that front which is a bit of a bummer as it would have been nice to see more eventful action. The flashback story feels like more of the same here in that it’s another story of the Clones learning a lesson through a mission. I realize this is the formula for the entire mini-series, but I was hoping for something that felt a bit more original and less like a filler story (which is pretty much what this is). Hopefully, the remaining issues will close things out in a big way.

The artwork is done by Derek Charm and Valentina Pinto (who did the flashback story). Charm’s style is very much colorful and more like a cartoon while Pinto’s style is much more expressive and detailed. It can be a tad bit rough around the edges in certain panels, but overall, it’s a vivid visual style that really compliments the story being told.

As per usual, the comic concludes with a cover art gallery and IDW comic ads.
