The comic-book world continues to fill in the blanks of the Star Wars universe between the feature films Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. In Dark Horse's four-issue miniseries General Grievous, a small Jedi strike force attempts to assassinate the six-armed multi-lightsaber-wielding droid before he kills any more of their order, not knowing that he has something even more sinister in mind for a group of young Padawan he's captured. Written by Chuck Dixon (Nightwing) with art by Rick Leonardi and Mark Pennington, General Grievous takes place before Sith and the animated Clone Wars series. --David Horiuchi -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Synopsis

Bridging the gap between "Star Wars Episode II" and "Episode III", the four-armed, light-saber wielding General Grievous blasts his way into his own series! On a rescue mission to the planet Vandos, Padawan Flynn Kybo and his master T'chooka D'oon come face to face with one of the leaders of the Separatist army, General Grievous. After Grievous kills his master, Kybo goes to the Jedi Council with a plan to take out the General before more lives are lost. When Grievous hijacks a transport ship of Padawans, the desperate Jedi must hunt the galaxy before he adds more lightsabers to his growing collection! This exclusive to graphic novel story is a must for all "Star Wars" fans!

3 von 3 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Mario Pf. HALL OF FAME REZENSENTTOP 500 REZENSENT am 12. November 2007
Format: Taschenbuch
Im Comicspecial zu Episode 3 feiert das große militärische Genie hinter dem Vormarsch der Droidenarmeen seinen großen Auftritt - General Grievous, ein Cyborg, der nicht nur über ein immenses strategisches Talent verfügt sondern im Nahkampf in der Lage ist, es selbst mit mehreren Jedi-Rittern gleichzeitig aufzunehmen.

Eine eigentlich einfache Rettungsmission wird für den Jedi-Padawan Flynn Kybo und seinen Meister T'Choka D'oons zur tödlichen Falle, als sie dabei auf General Grievous stoßen, der Meister D'oons und seine Klonsoldaten gnadenlos niedermetzelt. Nur knapp entgeht auch sein Padawan der Klinge des Generals und kann die Mission zumindest erfolgreich beenden. Auf Coruscant spricht er deshalb vor dem Jedi-Rat und ersucht darum mit einem gezielten Angriff gegen den General vorzugehen, stößt mit seinem Vorschlag jedoch auf breite Ablehnung unter den Ratsmitgliedern. Einer neuen Meisterin zugeteilt soll Flynn seine Ausbildung abschließen und Grievous ziehen lassen, doch eine Begnung mit Jedi-Meister B'Dard Tone, der selbst von Grievous grausam verstümmelt wurde, und seinen Padawan Codi Ty gibt Flynn eine neue Chance. Zu dritt schließen sie ein Bündnis Grievous unter Einsatz aller Kräfte und selbst ihres eigenen Lebens zu töten. Was die drei Jedi bei ihrem Racheschwur längst noch nicht wissen, der General hat erst kürzlich ein Schiff mit Jedi-Schülern gekapert und verfolgt mit ihnen einen grausamen Plan...

About General Grievous this book is not 31. März 2006
Von Daiho - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is not a horrible book, but you might be disappointed if you think you'll be getting a story about General Grievous. As with a lot of Star Wars EU, the focus here is on characters you've never heard of and will probably never hear of again, a group of teenaged Padawan who have lost their masters to General Grievous and who strike out on their own, against the wishes of the Jedi council, to hunt down and assassinate the multi-limbed cyborg. As this story takes place before "Revenge of the Sith," you already know their mission will be a failure, so there's not a lot here to create suspense. And since we know that Grievous can wield as many as six lightsabers at a time, you know too how the Padawan are likely to meet their end.

With over a dozen characters in a such a short book, it's a fairly impossible task to make even a handful unique. Having boxed himself in on the plot, writer Chuck Dixon is left with little to do and the story is carried mostly by the very fine illustrations of Rick Leonardi and Mark Pennington.

If you'd like to read more about Grievous, as of this writing the only sources that contain background on the General himself is the novel "Labyrinth of Evil," and the graphic novel "Star Wars Visionaries," which contains one Grievous story. Both of these books come highly recommended.

Had great potential, but didn't deliver 28. Januar 2006
Von Z. Stern - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
General Grievous could have been much better. Excellent art, frequently showing Grievous as frightening and intimidating, as he should be. The dialogue was what really ruined this. Grievous had several cheesy lines such as

"The Mon Calamari are such a disgusting species. Please tell me they are all slain"

and "Let not one of them leave alive".

Apart from that, the plot was very good, with Grievous capturing several Padawans and planning to turn them into cyborgs like him. This TPB was average, so it gets 3 out of 5. Only serious fans should read this. For anyone else looking for a Star Wars graphic novel starring a villain, I'd reccommend the Darth Maul TPB.

Not the best, but ... 11. November 2007
Von Doug Brunell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The art and story is marginal, and Grievous isn't really the focus of the story (in that we learn nothing new about him), but it is a fun story nonetheless.

As with all Star Wars stories from Star Wars, your enjoyment may come from how much you care about the characters focused on. Here they are disposable Jedi, but it still makes for an interesting read with no real conclusion.

The series, which came out before "Episode III," sold like hotcakes, as readers wanted to get as much info on the characters as they could. The General Grievous here is not the injured one we saw in the movie, but that makes no real difference to the story. What does make a difference is the young padawans he captures. That gives the tale its backbone, and makes it worth reading if only for that.
Damaged Cover 13. Juni 2014
Von Nevyn Sandow - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The book's cover was badly damaged, presumably in transit, though it's hard to say. It was delivered in a plain envelope, not even a padded one, so damage in transit is highly likely. It had gouges in the cover and was pretty bent up. The inside was fine, thankfully, but it was really irritating that it wasn't in good condition.
Not a bad diversion, but there is plenty of room for improvement. 13. September 2011
Von Crystal Starr Light - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Not a bad diversion, but there is plenty of room for improvement.

Padawan Flynn Kybo has a plan: have a small Jedi team take out General Greivous. But when the Jedi Council doesn't approve, Kybo leaves the Order with fellow Jedi Master Tone and his apprentice, Codi, and begins the hunt for Greivous.

Some months back, I was on a comic book/graphic novel binge and, being a Star Wars nerd, I picked up a bunch of these at a used bookstore. I wanted something quick to read (and to pass along to fellow Star Wars nerds), so I picked this out.

It's not a bad idea, even if I am sick to death of the Clone Wars era (not the fault of this comic, though, as it was published in 2005, way before we got oversaturated with Clone Wars stories). Three Jedi going rogue to defeat Greivous? Sounds cool!

While holding the title to this trade paperback, Greivous, like Darth Maul in his self-titled comic, doesn't really hold main spotlight. He appears, but mostly in the background of our three Jedi. And let's face it, our three Jedi just ain't that important. We know from the beginning they are going to die (this is set pre-Episode III, so there is no way that they will be successful), so there is little tension in the story. The Jedi themselves are bland. We have our stereotypical human, because all stories have to have a lead human male character, our token females, and token aliens. Yawn.

Even worse, this story throws in Jedi Padawans. I'm that person that really dislikes tossing children into a story for no reason other than to make unnecessary tension (because we all know that somehow our heroes will have to divert their attention from the real goal to save these kids' skins). And the Jedi children here are worse than ever. They talk COMPLETELY unrealistically for their age, which seems to be anywhere from 8 (based on appearance) and 13 (based on the fact they are called "Padawans").

Don't believe me? Here are some examples of the "brilliant" Jedi children dialogue. Please note that, based on the artwork, these kids look like they are eight-year-olds:

"I have noting to fear from a machine."

"Now bury your fear. We're Jedi Padawans. We'll face what the coming days bring with courage...no matter what might happen."

"Bring the Force to bear."

And my personal favorite:

"All the more reason to honor his final command!" (Said to a Jedi Padawan at least twice her age)

[SIDE NOTE: Pretty much all the dialogue in this graphic novel is stilted, along the lines above. It's clunky and awkward, but given the way the movies are, I guess I can't and shouldn't really complain...]

Again, I might not have a problem with these children and this silly plot if A) they acted the age they appeared (age 8) or B) they were much older than the age they appeared. As it is, it combines two attributes I hate: children in books meant to be saved and children that speak WAY, WAY older than their age.

Another thing that really frustrated me about this story was the art. Overall, it wasn't that bad, but there was not a single drawing of Yoda that didn't make him look like some sort of horror creation. There are at least two panels of him where he looks freakish, like a Halloween scare and not like a Jedi Master. It almost makes the puppet from Episode I look...NAAAAAAAAAH!!

In the end, this story is a nice diversion, but it doesn't really impact the timeline. If you want a quick story, this won't be a bad choice. Be prepared, however, for not that much Greivous and really atrocious dialogue.
