A Padawan Boy Becomes a Man in Kanan #11
Marvel brings us to the close of Kanan's Clone Wars experiences with issue #11 of the fierce Jedi's monthly title. The talented Greg Weisman (Starbrand & Nightmask) is the storyteller. Penciler Pepe Larraz (X-Men '92) provides the explosive visuals for the tale.
Caleb Dume’s first foray into the Clone Wars comes to a conclusion in Kanan #11! The inevitable conflict with General Grievous and another mysterious warrior occurs! It's a Star Wars adventure which takes us from the Republic to the Rebellion as Kanan fights for his life!
Kanan #11 is packed full of incredible action.You can't go wrong with two lightsaber-wielding Jedi in the thick of battle. The fact that one of the villains is General Grievous makes it all the more sweeter. The other character is a type of ninja / nomad that brandishes a flamethrower. If the creative team for Kanan can keep up with the pace they've set in this issue, we're in for a frenetic thrill ride of epic proportions.
I honestly can't think of a thing I didn't like about Kanan #11. My one minor complaint has to do with the fact that General Grievous had his hands chopped off again. For a skilled lightsaber duelist, he seems to lose a lot of appendages. He has four arms he can use to block strikes, but still ends up with severed limbs at the end of many battles. Besides that, issue #11 is seemingly flawless.
Rated T for Teen, Kanan #11 contains violence and frightening and intense scenes for younger children. If you let your kids watch the live-action movies, you'll have no problem with the comic. As far as violence is concerned, there's a lot of shooting and a fiery decapitation. However, you really don't see anything graphic.
Marvel Comics is most definitely satisfying my desire for more Star Wars is fulfilling all my cravings for more time in a galaxy far, far away. Writer and artist bring fans a wonderful visual extension of the world and characters we all know and love from Disney XD's hit television series Star Wars Rebels.

Kanan #11 is available now in print and digital editions.
