Obi-Wan & Anakin #2: Unfamiliar World!
The back story for the follow-up leads to the natives from the warring factions of ‘Open’ and ‘Close’ where their technology is relied upon the airships. This features the appearance of Mother Pran and Kolara from the faction of ‘Open’ and Gecker from the ‘Close’ faction.
Chechetto’s impressive action scenes like it jumps right at you like you’re watching an ‘anime-style’ Star Wars series filled with details in a snowy backdrop. Obi-Wan is seemingly the ‘Batman’ in this story while Anakin as the rebellious ‘Robin’ particularly with a Jason Todd attitude if it would to describe the characters in their prime prior to Order 66 and it was quite noting their beginnings.
Besides the two warring natives they’re going to face a lot of alien creatures not known to the Jedi Knights as they try to find out who sent the message for them to make the trip to this planet. But first they have to work together with the two factions in getting away to the creatures seeing them as their dinner.
In-between all this happening the story delves also into the flash back during Anakin’s early training days at the same time meeting Chancellor Palpatine, which expands to how he lured the young Padawan to become Darth Vader.
Overall the visual art adds substance to the second part of the mini-series and explores the dynamic between master and padawan. This also explores how the Jedi Knights deal with alien natives not known to them. Star Wars continues to flesh out more stories prior to Revenge of the Sith and gives the readers an idea how they came to be that history has known them.
