Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith collects all four issues from the Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith series of comics. It was released March 16, 2005.

Publisher's summary[]

The official comics adaptation of the most anticipated of the Star Wars films! The action of the Clone Wars comes to a dramatic conclusion, and events are put in place for A New Hope. Battles rage in space, armies clash on alien worlds, heroes become martyrs, and friends become enemies-all leading up to the biggest, longest, and most incredible lightsaber duel in Star Wars history!

This is the film that answers the questions, How did Anakin succumb to the dark side? What happened to Luke and Leia's mother? And why are there no Jedi around in the original trilogy?

Artist Doug Wheatley (Star Wars: Empire volume two) brings a level of life and detail to the adaptation that rivals that of the films themselves. An epic graphic novel not to be missed!

Differences from the film[]

  • Count Dooku only loses one hand to Anakin's lightsaber; in the film he loses both.
  • Grievous tells Nute Gunray to relocate to Mustafar upon returning to Utapau, in the film he does before his duel with Obi-Wan.
  • Obi-Wan's duel with General Grievous is shortened. Instead, Obi-Wan rides Boga up to Grievous' ship platform where they fight.
  • The Battle of Kashyyyk is not shown, only Yoda's escape is.
  • On Polis Massa, Yoda is shown communicating with Qui-Gon Jinn telepathically through the Force.
  • Yoda is shown arriving on Dagobah, a scene that was cut from the film.
