The Rundown: Obi-Wan contemplates the role of the Jedi in war.

The storm is starting to hit the moisture farmers and Obi-Wan is confident that Owen and Beru have Luke protected as he continues to contemplate his life before Tatooine. As he thinks about his life, he thinks about the Jedi’s place in times of war. A memory that takes him back to his time leading Cody and a regiment of Clone troops through multiple battles against the Separatists and General Grievous.

Their latest mission has Obi-Wan leading a group of troopers on a dangerous mission to secure a bridge and steal the plans for a devastating weapon. A plan that will expose the General to more of the horrors of war, the loss of comrades and the absence of lives within the force.

The Story: Cantwell delivers some great action in the story as well as some engaging introspection for the character. I continue to love the premise of this series and how it looks at the life of the character and the lessons he’s learned from it. The story has a great sense of both character and atmosphere and I look forward to seeing where Obi-Wan’s journey goes next and what lessons he learns along the way.

The Art: Miracolo delivers some stunning visuals in the issue. The story has a lot of action and Miracolo manages to capture both the ferocity of war and the visual wonder of the Star Wars universe throughout the pages and panels.
