Mace Windu Reviews

  • Neil Coulter

    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

    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 the dissenter is wrong and Mace Windu is right, but that wasn't how I felt. The Jedi have serious issues that they never confront.

    suggests that it's going to confront issues like that, but then it ends up running away from them or ignoring them. Maybe someday . . .

    The primary question I have about the Clone Wars is:

    is it worth causing death and destruction to prevent some planets from breaking away from the Republic and forming another governance system? That doesn't make sense to me. It's like the American Civil War, but without the slavery issue.

    an entire galaxy be governed by one system? Could a galaxy support two governments, especially if they're cooperative? Separation from the Republic doesn't seem like a compelling reason to throw the galaxy into chaos (which is what the Republic/Jedi are fighting to prevent; in fighting for that ideal, they're destroying that ideal). Related to that: What's the big deal about Jedi deciding to leave the order? Do you really have to become homicidal and destroy some Jedi in order to get out of it? This seems like a strange cult. An exit option would've solved one character's problem in this story--and, of course, it would have been a good option for Anakin.

    The art in this book is unremarkable, the flashback to Mace Windu as a padawan is insubstantial, the villain should have been Durge, and it seems odd to me that the Jedi Council can't spare any clone troops to send with Mace, but they can spare three other Jedi generals.

    Not the worst Star Wars comic, but not at all the best.

    This is one of the worser Star Wars minis that Marvel have put out. It feels like an arc of the Clone Wars that I wouldn't be as invested in and would want to be over so the next arc could start. And the art is so bad. Come on, Marvel. Do something about the art in your Star Wars books!!

    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.

    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

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 brief but enjoyable. The story didn't do anything for me as it felt like we have done this story before in this universe. The real low point of this collection was the artwork. The villain reminded me of Ultron from the Marvel universe and the characters were not the best drawn.

    There are much better collections from the new canon. I would pass on this one unless you are a fan of Mace Windu or attempting to read everything from this vast universe.

    I like Mace Windu, but this I did not like.

    The dialogue was terrible, needless even. And worst of all, full of exposition which I didn't really care for.

    And the art, the art was terrible. Why did Yoda look like some greasy, fat dude who might try to sell you fake stuff? It was actually kind of disturbing now that I think about it.

    One thing I did like, was how it brought in the conflict within the Jedi in regards to the war. Though it wasn't executed very well, I appreciated seeing that.

    I wasn't expecting much out of this and my expectations were met.

    This might be slightly unfair, I would probably give it closer to 2 1/2 stars, but we don’t have that luxury with Goodreads.

    Boring.

    Knock off Ultron villain character.

    Per this book, Windu should be a Sith since he states he believes in absolutes. Unless, this is because in the EU(now legends) we knew he heavily flirted with the Dark side, etc.

    The writing is okay...

    Some of the art was bearable..

    Almost interesting story/plot.

    Ouch, this one was really bad, which is a shame because these characters were some of my favorites in the Clone Wars saga. The story was bland and uninspired, with a jedi conflict that made absolutely no sense, I didn't like the dialogue as well, but the real bad section was the art which looked sketchy and effortless, not one good loking page on this one.

    I wanted to liked this one, and I think the writer understood the character of Mace Windu, but overall this was really dissapointing to me.

    It's not often that the new Marvel canon novels or comics have completely swung and missed. This book is unfortunately one of those cases.

    Frankly, the epilogue and a short flashback to Windu's apprenticeship are far more interesting than 90% of the comic. It just leads to a story that pales in comparison to the standards set by Soule or Gillon. What makes it worse is that Windu and a Clone Wars era story are ripe for the picking. Instead, we get a straight-up Clone Wars episode that ultimately c
