Galactic News: General Grievous To Return in New Star Wars Comic Series

One of the best things to come out of George Lucas' Star Wars prequel trilogy was the multi-limbed, four lightsaber wielding antagonist, General Grievous. However his time in the cinematic galaxy far, far away was cut short as he was only featured in Revenge of the Sith. As one of the villains of the story, he wasn't given much back story or on screen time. But now, he'll be making his comeback in brand new comic book mini-series called Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Battle Tales. The off shoot of comics will be taking a look at characters and stories set during The Clone Wars period with Grievous being one of the focal points. 

The new comic which will be limited to a five issue run with Michael Moreci handling scripting duties and a bevy of artists taking up the new tales. The comics will mostly center on Commander Cody and Captain Rex during their battles in the Clone Wars. One of the stories will also feature an appearance by Padme. 

The series will be aimed at younger readers and will be released weekly. It takes place in the same continuity as the acclaimed Clone Wars animated series. The comic hits shops in April.
