It's out! The Clone Wars have begun!

Aayla Secura fights her way through a gang of underground mercenaries to reach her former master, Quinlan Vos, who with the help of a new girlfriend (?) has discovered the Separatists' plan to attack Kamino and rid them of their ability to make clones!

But the information appears to be a trap laid out to bait the Jedi by none other than Darth Tyranus and Darth Sidious, who together make an appearance to plot the downfall of the Jedi!

Expect a Chadra-Fan, a mysterious Falleen (not Prince Xizor supposedly, though a distinct possibility) and even a Dianoga!

Not to mention there's a sexy little red-light district worker who's more than an accomplished pick-pocket who's now working for the Jedi!

This episode is action packed and leads up to next months SUPER ISSUE, "The Attack on Kamino!" which may permanently disable the Republic's ability to manufacture clones from Jango Fett's legacy!

Jan Duursema did the art on #49, and I'm pretty sure she'll be behind the action in #50.

These stories take place just weeks after the Battle of Geonosis!

Every Star Wars fan should be reading these.

I'll have to get to the comic shop/bookstore and pick that one up! It sounds good!

I read this last night. Man, I was looking forward to the Clone Wars before I read it, but now. . . I don't know if I can make it in the month between chapters! :) This is one of the best SW comics I've read in a long time. A long time.

I picked up #49 on the way home from work last night. You're right, El Chuxter, this is one of the better SW comics in quite some time. I can't wait for the next chapter!

Heh, a little behind on reading, just read this one last night.

I thought it was great! I liked how Vos was undercover acting as a crime boss, that seemed to fit his character very well. I always welcome stories with him and Aayla, and this was no exception. Also really enjoyed the interaction between the Jedi & the Faleen Zenex Zur, I think they did a better job conveying his pheremones (sp?) than they did with Xisor in the Shadows mini-series.

All this and a great cover too!
