Star Wars: Defender of the Lost Temple is a lot more fun than the cartoon

It's Star Wars meets Indiana Jones as two female jedi and a squad of candy-colored clones navigate a booby trap-filled temple, only to face the Mandalorian Death Watch.

While the terribly misguided Clone Wars cartoon is dark and slow and crippled by the weird mannequin like movements of the characters, this 80-page story is a delight.  Defender of the Lost Temple is all vibrant colors, fast-paced adventure, and stylish movement.  Like the Clone Wars Adventures series, it's aimed at young readers, but also like those comics, it's fun for Star Wars fans of all ages.

Preorder for $8 for 80 pages at Amazon.
