STARSHIP
Sith battle station

COMMENTS
This series is presented in digest size comic books which are smaller than the average comic, at about 5 ¼" x 7 ½". It is based on the art and design style of Genndy Tartakovsky's animated Clone Wars series that ran on the Cartoon Network.

According to the inside cover, the events in this issue takes place 5 months after the Battle of Geonosis.

The Fillbach Bothers as listed in the credits are named Matt and Shawn Fillbach.

The cover to this issue is a take off on the popular Charlie's Angels pose, with the three girls holding their guns in silhouette.

"Rogue's Gallery" features a gag that appears similar to a shot in Hellboy, a film based on another popular Dark Horse comic. Durge is punched so hard he flies backwards through a lot of museum displays, which is very similar to HB's fight with Sammael.
SYNOPSIS
Asajj Ventress and Durge are wandering around a space station of Count Dooku's looking for an intruder. They enter the trophy room and are confronted with General Grievous.

Grievous proves quite a match for these two Clone Warriors. He takes his lumps, but manages to get the upper hand. He beheads Durge with his lightsaber and chokes Asajj until she passes out.

He takes their bodies to Count Dooku, who tells Grievous he has done well. His other servants will be put in bacta, and he will go on to lead the droid armies for him.

DROID
battle droid, super battle droid

LOCATION
Ord Mantell, Coruscant, Republic Intelligence HQ

ORGANIZATION
Republic commandos

SPECIES
Trandoshan

COMMENTS
This is the first appearance of Republic Commandos in any comic series. They are from the LucasArts game of the same name.

The closing panel is very reminiscent of the warehouse shot at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark.
SYNOPSIS
At Republic HQ, an ARC trooper is providing a briefing for two squads of Republic Commandos. It seems a group of Trandoshan mercenaries have intercepted a diplomatic package of great importance. They need to get it back.

The Commandos intercept three landspeeders carrying the Trandoshans, destroying two. But the third escapes killing one of the two squads in the process. They follow the speeder into the industrial yards.

The Trandoshans are surprised as the Commandos enter, and several of each team die. The last Trandoshan takes off with the package and the Commando squad leader gets the drop on him. He kills him with the blade form his forearm, retrieves the package and returns to HQ.

At the Supreme Chancellor's office, Mas Amedda delivers the package to Palpatine. He open it seeing a strange green object from the Malastare emissaries. He dismisses it and asks that it be placed in storage with the other. Mas Amedda takes the case into small warehouse filled with similar cases stacked floor to ceiling and places it on an empty shelf.

DROID
battle droid, super battle droid, dwarf spider droid

TECHNOLOGY
really big gun

VEHICLE
single man tank platform

COMMENTS
The fact that Yoda never speaks in this piece, and the title, give the story a vibe of the old spaghetti Westerns directed by Sergio Leone.
SYNOPSIS
Yoda walks into a small town on an alien planet carrying a giant box on his shoulder, dozens of times larger than he. The town's occupants are all very curious as to who he is and what he is doing.

He ignores them and enters the local cantina, where a friendlier villager tell him just to ignore them. A villager runs in screaming that a Separatist army is coming.

Yoda walks out calmly, still not having uttered a word. The scared leader of the Separatist force laughs that this little Jedi could do anything against his huge army.

Yoda presses a button on the side of the box, which falls open to reveal a humongous gatling gun. He activates the weapon and decimates every single droid confronting the town.

Their leader is untouched and shocked, and before he can react, Yoda leaps toward him, lightsaber drawn and slices his personal battle tank in two. The leader runs away screaming.

Yoda calmly looks back at the stunned faces of the townspeople before picking up the box and walking back out of town.

DROID
battle droid

ORGANIZATION
Clone troopers

VEHICLE
Republic attack gunship, mobile cannon platform

SYNOPSIS
A squad of clone and ARC troopers is making a desperate stand to protect the only entrance into a sunken desert city. They engage their shield system, but it does not hold against the onslaught of the massive droid army headed their way.

The droids ask for their surrender, when a lone gunship flies over and a figure leaps from it. He is Jedi master Plo Koon and he slices his way through the droids to meet up with the ARC commander.

He then proceeds to decimate every tank, droid and weapon the Separatists have thrown at this little community. As he leaps away into the city, he says something in an alien tongue to the commander. He repeats it for his troops, "One battle, one Jedi."
