Mace Windu (Star Wars: Limited Series) Reviews
I go into Star Wars graphic novels with the lowest of expectations, and this one was not so bad. The story itself is bland and uninteresting, but within the story there is a more intriguing debate about whether the Jedi are doing the right thing in becoming generals and leading clone armies into battle. That's the kind of moral dilemma that was almost entirely missing from the prequel movies, and it's the sort of thing I'm very interested in. I think in this book, we're supposed to believe that ...more
I was surprised at how much time this volume spends exploring the morals and ethics of the Jedi, even as it tells a decent action-filled story about Windu and a few cohorts taking on a secret Trade Federation base. The conflict between Jedi being peacekeepers while also being generals gets a lot of discussion and becomes a major conflict within the Jedi, with a definite impact on the story. So much so that it sort of overwhelms the main story, whose antagonist is not particularly memorable. The ...more
A swing and a miss.
While this collection isn't bad, it isn't particularly good either. The story adds nothing to the overall Star Wars setting and continues the prequel tradition of under using Samuel Jackson. The story is fine, though it seems a bit hurried and random at times, just...dull.
I like Mace Windu, but this I did not like.
The dialogue was terrible, needless even. And worst of all, full of exposition which I didn't really care for.
And the art, the art was terrible. Why did Yoda look like some greasy, fat dude who might try to sell you fake stuff? It was actually kind of disturbing now that I think about it.
One thing I did like, was how it brought in the conflict within the Jedi in regards to the war. Though it wasn't executed very well, I appreciated seeing that.
Okay, I will say one negative thing about Disney era Star Wars...
When they do come back to the prequel well, they just seem to miss the mark.
Was this book awful? No. But it felt like a rehash of a similar graphic novel from the Dark Horse days, everyone seemed a little out of character, the action was dull, and it just seemed a bit pointless in the grand scheme of the SW narrative.
I appreciate seeing a new prequel era story, but this one did not do it for me.
Reads like a disjointed episode of The Clone Wars, good but not great!
This is a collection that takes place during The Clone Wars. In this one, Mace Windu and several Jedi travel to an Outer Rim planet to investigate why the Separatists are on this particular planet.
I didn't care for this collection but I cannot say I am surprised. I really am not a fan of Mace Windu and I was hoping this could sway me a little. It didn't. The highlight for me was Kit Fisto and the problem was that it wasn't his comic. There was a flashback as we see Mace as a padawan which was br ...more
