    Nice to see Padme's handmaidens fleshed out more as individual characters. Looking forward to more of that in the Queen's Shadow novel.

    If Hayden Christensen is regarded by many fans to be the actor responsible for "ruining Star Wars" then Natalie Portman is responsible for redeeming the Prequels. More than simply a wife and mother, Padme Amidala spent her entire life in service to her planet and to the Republic. Her dedication, strong-will, and outstanding wardrobe have made her a powerful role model for young Star Wars fans. Jody Houser (writer) and Cory Smith's (artist) Age of the Republic standalone does a wonderful job of If Hayden Christensen is regarded by many fans to be the actor responsible for "ruining Star Wars" then Natalie Portman is responsible for redeeming the Prequels.

Jody Houser (writer) and Cory Smith's (artist) Age of the Republic standalone does a wonderful job of providing further insight into Padme's world of political drama. The story highlights Padme's autonomous dedication as a peace activist during the Clone Wars. Never one to shy away from a fight Padme only resorts to violence as a last resort. Her Handmaiden's devotion and grit are also showcased though Padme would sooner pull the trigger herself than ask another to dirty their hands for her. Overall, Age of the Republic: Padme Amidala provides for the reader further evidence that Padme Amidala is the greatest character in the Star Wars Prequels. My only criticism is that the read is all too brief.

    By no means bad, but it didn’t really flush out Padme as a character much more than the Clone Wars show did. All of the other one shots kind of expanded more on the character they focused on. This just showed us more of the same of Padme. Like I said, it wasn’t bad, just kinda... been-there-done-that.

    I have mixed feelings about the handmaidens knowing about Padme and Anakin. It's at least somewhat amusing since Anakin and Padme really aren't as subtle as they are made out to be in other works. The mission itself wasn't that big, but it's a diplomatic mission, so there's not a whole lot that can happen.

    Another wonderful Padmé story! I loved the handmaidens in this one, and it felt like it was straight out of The Clone Wars tv show. My only issue is that there wasn't much to the plot and I felt it was too short. Looking forward to more!

    Plot: Senator Padmé Amidala is apart of the efforts to bring peace to the Republic and find an end to the Clone Wars, but in order to that, allies are needed. Padmé sets off on her own with a few handmaidens on a mission to the planet Clabron to garner the support of Grand Minister Stin. Upon arrival to Clabron trouble is already waiting. Of course, that doesn't stop Padmé. Rating: 4 Stars Artwork: 4 Stars Though I must say: the cover version of Padmé looks more like the Padmé than how she is drawn in the pa/>:/>: Plot: Senator Padmé Amidala is apart of the efforts to bring peace to the Republic and find an end to the Clone Wars, but in order to that, allies are needed.

I wouldn't know it was Padmé without the title and summary. Overall: Star Wars: Age of Republic - Padmé Amidala isn't an outstanding story and it's not meant to be. It's a quick journey among a bigger plot. But for Padmé fans (like myself) who have been wishing for Padmé content for years, it hits the spot; I read the whole issue with a smile on my face. The story is a reminder of how brave and tenacious and loving Padmé is and how unyielding and courageous Padmé's handmaidens are in their loyalty. Questions: I could ask why there was an (view spoiler)[assassin waiting there to get Padmé (hide spoiler)] , but it's not the first time that kind of situation has happened. It's a casualty of Padmé's position. Bonus — An appearance from Anakin Skywalker "I have a different idea for them... What a friend of mine likes to call aggressive negotiations."

    I just finished reading Queen’s Shadow, so the release of this issue felt more than a little perfect, timing wise. I’m sure that was intentional. Regardless, I knew that I had to read it. I wasn’t quite ready to say goodbye to Padme (again) so this was perfect. It’s a short story in truest form. A quick foray as Padme tries to form new contacts and bonds with other worlds. It may seem small compared to other events happening in the world, but it was still refreshing to see.

    Ridiculously dull and lazily illustrated

    Reminds me of some of Padmé's arcs in the TCW series.

    Cute Comic about Padme that covers her personality pretty well and two of her later handmaidens.The art is well done and colorful.

    A fun little one shot comic about Padme on what was a diplomatic mission to a neutral world.

    Another solid entry in Age of Republic has Padmé and two of her closest handmaidens travel to a neutral world, in hopes of convincing it to prefer the Republic over the Separatists. But not everything is as it seems, and they must deceive a powerful enemy to get to safety and in the process, acquire the goodwill of the planet's inhabitants. More striking is the closeness of the handmaidens to all that Padmé does and knows, a perfect companion for the Queen's Shadow book.
