Anakin Skywalker #1 is a nice one shot set during the Clone Wars as Anakin deals with a situation on a moon called Kudo III. Anakin has to deal with the realities of war, military leadership, and his own training as a Jedi. When difficult decisions come up, it can be a test of our character, and this one shows the best of Anakin’s.

Interestingly enough, in this issue he buts heads with Admiral Yularen who wants to wipe out a droid foundry from orbit. Anakin notices that the foundry is staffed by living beings rather than droids, so the attack would kill a lot of people. Thus he seeks out an alternative that will spare the lives of his own troops as well as the enemy. As the story unfolds, there’s nice character moments with Anakin and some action. We even get some Anakin and Obi-Wan moments before and after the battle. It’s a nice snapshot of what Anakin was like before the dark side took hold. It also does a great job of capturing the feeling of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV show.

The artwork is pretty good. The artists have a different take on the character likenesses so it’s not like Star Wars: The Clone Wars or the movies, but a different interpretation of them. It’s can be a little odd. But the layouts are good, the action is portrayed well, and the coloring is good.

This one is a good one shot, and a good one for Anakin fans. I really enjoyed this one and would recommend it. I give it a four out of five metal bikinis.
