"Heroes on Both Sides" is a 20-page comic in the digest-sized Clone Wars Adventures comic series. Heroes on Both Sides was published April 12, 2006 by Dark Horse Comics in the Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures Volume 5. The comic was written by Chris Avellone, illustrated by Stewart McKenny, lettered by Michael David Thomas, and colored by Dan Jackson.
Set during the Clone Wars, Heroes on Both Sides tells the story of a clone Advanced Recon Commando and a Viidaav commander who, despite fighting on opposite sides during the Battle of Viidaav, both tried to stop a detonation sequence that would kill their troops.
Above Viidaav, Count Dooku and General Grievous discussed their plans for the coming trap. Instructing the droids on the ground to activate the detonation sequence, Grievous also mentioned that the Viidaav colonists should be left to live on in history.
The signal was transmitted to the mining array and was soon detected by both the Republic and Viidaav forces. Both rushed to attempt to stop the detonation. Fighting gunships, battle droids, and security systems, only the two commanders were left in the end. Facing each other with only seconds before detonation, the Viidaav leader was killed, but not before he could shoot the computer. The planet was saved, not by the clone trooper but also by the Viidaav he killed.
