While Anakin Skywalker enjoys a brief respite from the Clone Wars (and a reunion with his secret wife Padme Amidala), Obi-Wan Kenobi embarks on a "personal" mission.
Kenobi's first stop is a frontier town on the swamp world of Trigalis, where he fights a small army of bounty hunters, duels with a crime lord who has ties to Count Dooku, and obtains undercover help from fellow Jedi Aayla Secura. All that just to verify a rumor about an enemy that he can't forget.
Obi-Wan is becoming obsessed, and he knows it. But the danger of flirting with the dark side is a risk he's willing take to save the person about whom he cares most in the galaxy.
Dark Horse sets its sights on the events leading up to the most anticipated event in Star Wars history: Episode III!
Really a part of Star Wars: Republic, for all intents and purpopses. Separated out into a miniseries of its own so it would be more "hype-able" in the run-up to the release of Episode III, and so it could more speicifically follow the tale of Obi-Wan and Anakin.Taken with the animated Clone Wars second season and Pocket Books Cloak of Deception, it gives readers a full view of events immediately prior to the opening scene of Episode III.
