Revenge of the Sith tidbits
The Star Wars Homing Beacon newsletter (#127) talks about the comic adaptation of the film and has some interesting SPOILERS about Revenge of the Sith. (Not sure where the newsletters are archived online).
Obi-Wan will fight General Grievous....
"Take the scene of Obi-Wan fighting Grievous -- that's greatly reduced in the comic, but Doug has kept the dramatic heart of it by putting the action in these really incredible, fluid panels. I've tried to keep the emotional aspect by paring it down to its essence: this is Obi-Wan trying to eliminate a deadly opponent, and he believes that once he does, it will bring about the end of the war,"
And Obi-Wan and Yoda realise what Darth Vader has done...
"The one scene Lane could not wait to see adapted by Wheatley depicts Obi-Wan and Yoda discovering the devastation brought about by Darth Vader, the newest Dark Lord of the Sith. "Obi-Wan knows that his Padawan is responsible for this," says Lane. "It's like a parent knowing that his child has become truant but not knowing the extent of the damage until it was too late. I tried to factor that in, Obi-Wan knowing his child was responsible for all this in the blink of an eye, and as a Master, he is responsible for his Padawan. It was done really lovely in the movie script, so I took that and amplified that for the comic."
