Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith 3 was the third issue in Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith series of comics. It was released April 13, 2005 and tells the approximate third half-hour of the film beginning with Anakin Skywalker igniting his lightsaber on Palpatine after he admits to Anakin that he is Darth Sidious and ending with Darth Vader slaughtering the Separatist Council.
Based on the screenplay by George Lucas—the official comics adaptation of the most anticipated of the Star Wars films! The action of the Clone Wars comes to a dramatic conclusion, and events are put in place for A New Hope.
Battles rage in space, armies clash on alien worlds, heroes become martyrs, and friends become enemies—and the galaxy is forever changed!
Shipping weekly, this four-issue series features art by Doug Wheatley (Star Wars: Empire volume 2-Darklighter)—who brings a level of life and detail to the adaptation that rivals that of the films themselves—with covers by Dave Dorman!
