I don't know how many of you have seen/heard of the cartoons. They are the events that take place between Episode II and Episode III. Done in the style of Samurai Jack (fantastic cartoon, best saved for a different topic), there are 2 volumes each consisting of 13-or-so episodes running around 3 minutes each. The end of the second volume coincides exactly with the space battle as seen in episode III, and the entirety of it helps explain what the clone wars were all about.

So, what I want to know is: Do you feel they were worthy of the Star Wars name? Do you agree with the decision to create them in the first place?

I don't know, to be honest. I didn't see so much of it, but the stuff that I did see seemed interesting enough...I just found myself unable to really get into it, I don't really know why. The style of the cartoon sort of put me off - I've seen Samurai Jack, and have liked what I've seen - but it didn't really seem to mesh with the SW theme. I did feel like I'd missed something when I went to see Ep III, mind you!

Volume II (at least to me) didn't seem as "out of place" as volume I did, and explains alot of the missing information before episode III. Maybe giving it a shot will help you out? smile.gif

If I see it cheap somewhere, I'm sure I will. 1.gif

I was quite miffed when I went to see EpIII and so much time had passed. I understood it between I and II, because Anakin had to grow up...but I suppose it was needed here too, to get the Clone Wars out of the way! biggrin.gif

It was good to the extent that it gave us more story, without me having to go buy a book and take loads of time to read it.
