Back cover summary[]

It is the beginning of the end of the Galactic Republic. The Jedi just don't know it yet...

Across the galaxy, tensions rise and wars threaten as the unseen Sith set in motion their palns for conquest. From the seats of power on Coruscant to the desert wates of far-off Tatooine, from the podracing tracks of Malastare to the winter forests of Galidraan, the Jedi are drawn into conflict after conflict - each one thinning their numbers and draining their strength.

These are the battle which lead up to the Clone Wars. On one side the heroics of Mace Windu, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker and other greats of the Jedi Order, and on the other the villainy of Count Dooku and the bounty hunters turned Jedi killers Aurra Sing and the notorious Jango Fett.

Collected issues[]

The story fragments of The Phantom Menace ½ have all been put in place with the stories of Episode I Adventures as they were originally intended, which had not been done previously in the trade paperback.
