Meanwhile, Jedi Flynn Kybo meets up with Stellskard, who is a member of the Banvhar Combine.

THE STORY

Although this issue is better than the first one, it doesn't have mch going for it. A big part of it is Grievous' takeover and subjugation of the Ugnaughts of Gentes. I love the fact that Dixon used a pre-established planet and species instead of creating a new one, I think the scenes on Gentes are the best part of the story. While it is not especially entertaining, it is definitely readable.

The other scenes with the three Jedi meeting up with the group of digruntled miners, who want vengeance on Grievous but have just been waiting to get help, is just way too convenient and predictable. Plus, what is this sub-plot with Grievous keeping Jedi kids as captives? Isn't he supposed to kill Jedi?


THE ART

Still not a big fan of the art, although the colors on the first six pages are very interesting in their contrast and tone. Could be due to the addition of Michelle Madsen on coloring duty. Othewise the art is passable.


CONCLUSIONS

This issue doesn't improve much on the last one.
