Star Wars Adventures #19

The latest issue of IDW's family-friendly all-ages comic series takes fans back to the days of the Old Republic. "Roger Roger" is a somewhat goofy tale about a damaged Battle Droid, B1-0516, who decides to help Obi-Wan Kenobi and Rex who are outnumbered and outgunned by an entire legion of Battle Droids during the Battle of Horain. Star Wars: The Clone Wars fans will no doubt enjoy seeing Kenobi and Rex thrown together for the story, while the droid (who earns the nickname Bats by helping the duo) offers some comic relief (and unexpected back-up for our heroes).

The comic also includes a back-up story in "Tales from Wild Space: The Big March" showcasing the further adventures of cartographer Emil Graf and his crew. Their latest destination offers opens the door about another story about a Battle Droid. Unlike Bats, Q5-7070 wasn't as lucky as after being separated from his unit the droid was forced to fend for himself on a hostile world of alien creatures all wanting to eat or destroy him. Those looking for short Star Wars tales, without jumping into the longer current Marvel Comics arcs, may enjoy themselves in the latest issue of the anthology issue. For fans.

[IDW, $3.99]
