Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4–8—Dark Horse originally made these single-issue comic-book adaptations of the 2002 film available in comic stores and on news racks, and then collected the four issues in trade paperback form that same year. Now Spotlight has licensed the material from Dark Horse, divided the trade collection—which is still in print—back into its component issues, and released them seven years later as hardbound library editions. The George Lucas film from which these comics sprang was the departure episode in the prequel trilogy, with a plot centering primarily on the romance between Princess Amidala and apprentice Jedi Anakin. The decision to reduce the role of child-friendly Jar-Jar Binks even further than Lucas himself did in the movie, and also to remove almost all of the humorous vignettes, makes the comic darker in tone than the film. This is further emphasized by heavily shadowed artwork, which sells the action effectively, but eliminates almost all of the vistas and worldbuilding that helped make the movie's effective spectacle. The comic relies overmuch on Gilroy's narrative captions, which is an unfortunate substitute for the film's visual storytelling.—Benjamin Russell, Belmont High School, NH
