Comic Book Review: Obi-Wan & Anakin - Marvel (2016)
Art by Marco Checchetto
Obi-Wan Kenobi and his young Padawan Anakin Skywalker are on a planet answering a call. The planet was supposedly uninhabited but they find out there is much more going on.
I was not a fan of this book. I don't like that Obi-Wan did not meet Luke's father as a pilot. I don't like that Jedi are frowned upon for learning at such an old age. There really isn't much about episodes one through three that I enjoyed so getting a story that takes place between The Phantom Menace and Attack of The Clones is just not my cup of tea. If you liked those films, maybe this comic book series is for you.
The dialogue in Obi-Wan & Anakin reads mush like how the dialogue sounds in episodes one though three. That isn't good. There was not much fun in those films and having Obi-Wan talk to Anakin is not enjoyable to listen to or read. Chancellor Palpatine using his political weight to tell Mace Windu what o do was painful to read as well.
The art in this book was nice to look at. The landscapes looked incredible and the explosions were amzing. Unfortunately little orphan Ani is one of the characters so that detracts from everything.
I really enjoy the other Star Wars comic book series I've read from Marvel. I was hoping the multiple comic series' and new films would be a nice way to separate themselves from these awful films. I guess they were due for something that is Stilt-Man Award worthy.
