They've been responsible
for some of the most dazzling and awe-inspiring visuals ever
put to film, and now the concept artists behind Star
Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith bring
their talents to comics. The gifted minds of the Lucasfilm
art department and the visual effects powerhouse Industrial
Light & Magic come together to tell their own Star
tales in this compilation of short stories. Given free reign
to explore any and every aspect of the Star
universe, each artist offers a new twist or a deeper view
into that galaxy far, far away...
is an extremely interesting idea - give a collection of individuals
who worked on the art side of Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge
of the Sith free reign in the Star Wars universe
and see what their twisted minds can create. The results are
collection sets off on the right foot with Old Wounds.
This sees Obi-Wan Kenobi having to take on an old adversary
long thought dead. This is followed up by The Artist of
Naboo, which sees an artist who saves Padme's live and
then falls in love with her as he begins to paint her and
her children (the young Luke and Leia Skywalker).
favourite inclusion was the final tale, The Eyes of Revolution,
which revolves around General Grievous. It shows the creation
of the once human general and how he was transformed into
the android we all know from Episode III.
be fair, there isn't a bad tale here. And the very different
art styles and story telling formats used here mean that there
is something to suit all tastes. A wonderful collection that
all true Star Wars fans should own.
