Mace Windu (Star Wars: Limited Series) Reviews
3 1/2 Stars.
Mace Windu is the latest release for the Star Wars graphic novel series. Unlike a lot of the other series coming out lately, this one is set at the early part of the Clone Wars. Obviously from the title you can tell that the focus is on Mace Windu and the adventures (or misadventures) he had. I personally would have liked to see Mace Windu at a younger age – sometime when he wasn’t quite so sure of himself (like the latest Bond movies, where he was an agent but he hadn’t gotten all ...more
feels good to do another review again. This time, I'll be looking at Matt Owens' Mace Windu Comic.
While its great to see a story taking place during the Prequels be released, I wasn't all that excited for this one. I don't hate the character of Mace Windu, but I'm not a fan either. While the prospect of a prequel era story interested me, I haven't really seen anybody give this one a glowing review. So now that I read it, did i stumble upon a hidden gem? Or is it as mediocre as the reviews make i ...more
Overall, Mace Windu did not work for me. I found small bits interesting but the main plot is mostly the standard Clone Wars Jedi vs. Droid stuff and much of the story revolves around Mace's conflict with being a Jedi who must fight when Jedi are supposed to be peace keepers.
I get that is a big part of the Jedi identity, by the way, but I'd rather not spend five issues debating the merits of fighting for peace when Mace Windu spends the entire book dramatically destroying droids, force crushing a ...more
I go into Star Wars graphic novels with the lowest of expectations, and this one was not so bad. The story itself is bland and uninteresting, but within the story there is a more intriguing debate about whether the Jedi are doing the right thing in becoming generals and leading clone armies into battle. That's the kind of moral dilemma that was almost entirely missing from the prequel movies, and it's the sort of thing I'm very interested in. I think in this book, we're supposed to believe that ...more
This is a collection that takes place during The Clone Wars. In this one, Mace Windu and several Jedi travel to an Outer Rim planet to investigate why the Separatists are on this particular planet.
I didn't care for this collection but I cannot say I am surprised. I really am not a fan of Mace Windu and I was hoping this could sway me a little. It didn't. The highlight for me was Kit Fisto and the problem was that it wasn't his comic. There was a flashback as we see Mace as a padawan which was br ...more
The least of the Star Wars comics. The story is meh and does nothing to develop Mace's character in the slightest. The one thing I did take out of it is that a Kit Fisto miniseries would have been way more interesting.
When I first saw that Marvel was making a limited series focusing on mace Windu I was super excited. I really got into Star Wars comics during the prequel and Clone Wars era. So many great stories and characters were introduced in those books, which are now non-canon. I was hoping this book would take place prior to Episode 2, where there currently isn't a lot of canon material, but this comic takes place during the Clone Wars. Which is still pretty cool to see in this new Marvel era.
This comic ...more
Public library copy.
I had thought this title was going to be as strong as the main SW title or match story efforts by Jason Aaron, but unfortunately the only thing that came our of it was how much of a righteous badass Jedi Mace was. The plot was a simple recruit for a mission. gig without any interesting twists or turns, the characters remnsined true to the spirit from the movie source material on which they're based.
