    Looks pretty good. Hope they can bring out another 6 issues after the original 12

    Yes, this seems promising. But, is it just me, or did the issue #7 disappear from the line-up somewhere? It isn't in the 'upcoming' list of Dark Horse anymore.

    Could she keep herself warm with the help of the dark side?

    Bought it, read it, enjoyed it. I like the art and I like seeing clones blowing stuff up.

    I am left speechless as I wonder how Ozzel ever managed to make it through the Clone Wars. If he had been one of the "acceptable" losses, while the Republic would have benefitted, the Rebellion wouldn't have.

    The series continues to be great. This issues suffers a bit from "in-betweenitis", but it's still quite poignant. Ozzel continues to be a repulsive twit, seeing a Clone Trooper give him cheek was gratifying. The running commentary on Plo Koon's age continues. Ventress stabs another dog. And the Jedi stance on the war remains not only interesting, but also satisfying, after so many... disappointing moments.

    Will await next issue eagerly.

    I wonder when they are going to announce more digests and on-goings with this series?

    got a question about these clone war cartoon episodes, are they worth watching for informational purposes? will thwy fill in gaps about that era of star wars?

    With Ozzel now making his way through the Clone Wars era, it's interesting that he is one of the few Imperial officers that helped the Republic during the CW.

    Seems to me he helped the Seperatists a lot more than the Republic.

    There has been times when former Separatists joined the Empire, i.e, Nas Ghent. If Ozzel indeed helped the CIS, that would be an interesting addition to his character.

    Few? What about Needa and Pellaeon?

    Hense, "few". I didn't forget about Needa or Pellaeon :)

    I was actually referring to his staggering incompetence.
