Obi-Wan & Anakin #3: Treachery in Carnelion IV!

03.27.2016 – Obi-Wan and Anakin mini-series expands the dynamics between both Jedi. This also reveals further how Chancellor Palpatine corrupted the young Skywalker to the darkside. There’s so much to tell about the master and his apprentice in an alien world that have its conflicts.

Carnelion IV is still a world that have little back story as Obi-Wan and Anakin continue to explore this side of the galaxy that have two warring factions work together. But that peace will be short-lived as there are things behind the scenes is happening at the same time that not everyone is aware and in that includes flash back to the past when Anakin was invited by Palpatine for a short walk.

Charles Soule shares the narrative about exploring further between Obi-Wan and Anakin’s relationship. Marco Checchetto provides the artwork that consistently brings the feel of the time both Jedis where in their prime. This is before Anakin’s lure to the darkside as history is told, but that story is already happening with the relationship with Chancellor Palpatine and his interest to the young Padawan.

On an alien world Obi-Wan shares his thoughts with Grecker, one of the natives in the planet Carnelion IV from the ‘Close’ faction. The other two women from the faction of ‘Open’ doesn’t say much of the history, but they have seen what Anakin is capable of that would benefit for themselves the turn out for this issue.

There’s not much more revelation than how Palpatime slowly starting to corrupt Anakin into the darkside through the flashbacks on Coruscant. The manga-style art by Checchetto definitely stands out since the first issue. The details of the creatures and monsters in Carleion IV sets out that the two Jedi Knights are in a different world.

Overall the narrative is well done continuing to expand the relationship between master and padawan, but the alien world of Carnelion IV remains to be a mystery that has little to reveal besides the warring factions of ‘Open’ and ‘Close’ that is difficult to accept which ones are really the good and bad of this mini-series.
