IDW releases a side story between the Clone Wars and Revenge of the Sith, and now they made a one-shot story between Ahsoka and Padme in Forces of Destiny issue.

Between the second and the clone wars, Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan were fighting to keep peace from the galaxy, but no matter what the Jedi tries to accomplish, there are still evil soaring around the galaxy. His student, Ahsoka is trained under Anakin, but then she kept training to become a Jedi. However, the shitty part is that even Cartoon Network kept the Clone Wars series going, Lucasfilms has been sidetracking between the other Star Wars films, not just that, but viewers came to notice how Star Wars was making a big franchise, but Disney came up with some cheesy comic based on the animated series on Disney which is now loaded on YouTube.

The first when I read this, the comic is the continuation of Star Wars Rebels, and to be honest, it’s nothing like the show, it just takes you back before Episode 3, and it’s nothing like it at all. So, who’s Ahsoka and Padme are fighting this time? Jar Jar Binks? No. Count Dooku? No. Grievous? No. Jabba the Hutt? No. It’s some stupid impostor that camouflages as one of Princess Amidala’s guards, it might as well be a droid with the stupid “Roger Roger” motto. Hey, name one comic and a short canon animated series where the female Star Wars main characters take the spotlight to protect the galaxy: Star Wars Forces of Destiny on IDW Comics, and Disney. When it loads the first episode, there’s Rey doing her usual survival thing at Jakku, then it goes with Princess Leia with her rebellions rescuing the Ewoks, and then it’s back to Episode 3 with Ashoka and Padme. They didn’t waste any time when the episode loads on YouTube it’s a 3-4 minute episode running.

In opinion, I guess the Forces of Destiny comic and animated series wasn’t that bad, but they should include a plot where Leia Organa travelled back in time to stop Palpatine with his scheme of destruction to the Jedi and tell Anakin that Palpatine is manipulating him and set right into a trap, as in Palpatine poses himself as Darth Sidious. I mean, the story would have been much better if that all happened to the series, instead we get these spin-off to the other female Star Wars characters. But yeah the Star Wars Forces of Destiny comic, if you like to read this, be my guest and with only $3.99 for a comic like that you’ll find something that didn’t belong in the Star Wars saga.
