PadmÃ© Amidala and C-3PO make a memorable entrance in their STAR WARS: THE CLONES series debuts in â€œDestroy Malevolence,â€ an all-new animated episode premiering at 9 p.m. ET/PT Friday, Oct. 17, on Cartoon Network. In the episode – the final act of a three-episode arc – PadmÃ© and C-3PO are taken hostage by General Grievous, leaving Anakin and Obi-Wan to save the Senator and complete the destruction of the Malevolence. However, Catherine Taber (American Werewolf in Paris, â€œCrank Yankersâ€) feels that PadmÃ© is anything but a conventional damsel in distress.
With the new direction Image Comics’ Invincible took in issue #50, one would expect the sales to drop off a little bit, but according to creator Robert Kirkman, that’s not the case. “It’s tradition for the issue after a milestone like fifty to taper off, but it certainly wasn’t the case here,” said Kirkman. “In fact, the combination of INVINCIBLE’s new costume, new sidekick and the totally kick-ass cover by Jim Lee made this the best selling issue yet. Having this sell so well after we blew through issue fifty showed me the series is healthier than its ever been.”
