    Though the Mace Windu is hitting me as strong as some of the other Star Wars miniseries have we're only in the second issue of it and the potential is definitely there. The characters have some fun areas to work with, the artwork is strong and dynamic, and it's filling in some interesting areas of the larger universe to work with. There's a lot of things that can be done in this period with the separatists and the republic as well as with the action and the politics. Mace Windu's a character that has a lot of potential and this series is one that may not exploit it but is adding a new piece to the larger tapestry of the character. Read Full Review

    With an epic battle sequence and incredible art, MACE WINDU #2 seems like a perfect follow-up to the stellar first issue. However, with characterization problems and an anticlimactic feel, one can only hope that future issues find their voice. Read Full Review

    A generic Star Wars issue that could feature any Jedi in the same situation. The action is good, but is hard to see from colors that are too dark. Good enough to give fans their weekly Star Wars fix, but not memorable. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, this felt like a thin installment that didn't do enough to move the story forward. But that's a problem that will probably disappear in the eventual trade. Read Full Review

    Marvel are more than aware of the opportunities the Star Wars license affords them. If they could take Mace to another setting, or even just explore his roots in a non-linear fashion, then there's every chance the character could get a spin-off worthy of his fan favourite status. Sadly this one just isn't cutting the mustard. Read Full Review
