How did Anakin get the scar over his eye?

Anakin Skywalker appears in Revenge of the
Sith with a scar over his right eye, without any explanation as to how he got it. So how
did he get this scar? The answer can be found in the comic book “Star Wars: Republic 71:
Dreadnaughts of Rendili, Part 3”. In the comic, Anakin fights a lightsaber duel with
Asajj Ventress in the Coruscant Underlevels. During the fight, she eventually gets the
upper hand, but decides to show off her precision instead of killing him. Doing so, she swiped
the tip of her lightsaber over his right eye, resulting in the scar. Finally snapping, Anakin overwhelmed Ventress
with his flurry of destructive blows. He blasted her off of the edge of the building they were
on, and he telekinetically entangled her in a number of live electrical wires. He then
tortured her by holding her in the wires with the Force as she was electrocuted, before
finally dropping her into a pit below. However, Ventress survived the fall like she did with
her first duel with Anakin on Yavin 4. She would reappear again on Christophsis and fight
Anakin once more.
