    This issue chronicles the fight for Kiros, a planet very much up for grabs in the battle between the Republic and the Separatists. We see plenty of droid-smashing action, and also glimpse why Obi-Wan was once known as The Negotiator. It all makes for a good start to this new series, but it's not without fault. The story hearkens back a bit too much to the movie, presenting an oversized alien character with annoying speech patterns. This issue's bad guy can rubs me the wrong way almost as much as Creole the Hutt (or whatever his name was). There's also the larger problem, one that can also be levied at the cartoon. What's the point of all this? What can The Clone Wars offer to Star Wars fans that they haven't already seen? So far, I'm noticing very little. This series is shaping up to be a strong adaptation of the source material, but neither medium has really justified its existence yet. Read Full Review
