Amidst the chaos of war, the only thing you can count on is the friend by your side. Few knew this better than Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, once Master and Padawan, now two Jedi Knights fighting side by side in the seemingly endless struggle to bring the Separatist leaders to justice and restore peace to the galaxy...

After the dry affair that was Volume 6 in this series, Volume 7 makes a spectacular return to form. When They Were Brothers is a collection of stories that see Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker looking out for each other.

The art work is consistent throughout this collection - while there are different artists, the style doesn't really change much. In fact, you could be forgiven for thinking that the same artist worked throughout this graphic novel. I also thought that the art for the strip was of much better quality than that used for the cover. The cover looks a little strange - Kenobi's face looks odd and his right leg has a couple of very peculiar bends in it.

The story lines are entertaining, if a little on the shallow side. The missions are not the important aspect here, the relationship between Kenobi and Skywalker takes centre stage. So, I suppose whether you will enjoy this collection comes down to whether or not you are a fan of the Kenobi/Skywalker relationship.

If, like me, you are, then you'll find this to be a riveting read.
