    Plo Kool!

    I could find only one fault with this excellent and expansive collection of Clone Wars pre-production art, it only covers season one! Sure, there are a few pages teasing the second season, but since this show ultimately made it to five, I would have expected more books by now. Sadly, I think this is all we’re going to get. It’s too bad because this book was obviously compiled with great care by Parisi and Scheppke.

    This book covers the genesis of the show, the subsequent expansion into a movie, and then the realization of the entire first season. It’s fascinating to see how a show of this magnitude is put together, from preliminary character sketches to fully sculpted maquettes, and from color studies all the way to the finished rendered frame. This is a solid piece of work, and anyone in love with the show should enjoy it, but be warned, it doesn’t make the cancellation of the series any easier to take.
