SUMMARY:

Obi-Wan and ARC Trooper "Alpha" have just escaped Rattatak aboard Ventress' personal ship. They are pursued by droid starfighters, and are forced to land on Riflor, the volcanic homeworld of the Advoszec. Meanwhile, the Jedi are attacking pirate vessels near Varonat, and when Anakin gets a vision of his master still alive, he convinces the others and leaves the battle to go find Obi-Wan. His new master, Ki-Adi-Mundi, goes with the brash Padawan, and they both meet Obi-Wan and Alpha just in time to help them fight a group of bounty hunters. They are finally all reunited, and Ki-Adi gladly relents his tutoring of Anakin back to his original master.

THE STORY

This is the conclusion to the Escape from Rattatak storyline, and it resolves a lot of plot points that have been hanging since Republic #58. It's a good action-packed story, and has a good share of space and ground battles. The last panel is kind of corny (with a Police Squad! type of freeze-frame-laughing-pose ending), but at least it is an ending. Now the series can continue its course now that Obi-Wan is back. There is a chance to explore Anakin's visions in this issue, and that's somewhat interesting.


THE ART

Tomás Giorello resumes the story he started in Republic #60. Again, not a big fan but the action is easy to follow. And just so you know, the bounty hunters on the cover are not the same as the ones in the story.


CONCLUSIONS

It's not Shakespeare, but it's enjoyable.
