    Meet the new boss...not the same as the old boss :D

    Newbie question here, please don't "Force Lightning" me for asking...where/how does one go about getting one(or both) of those comics?

    Go to any comic book shop on Free Comic Book Day. I've done it the last 2 years, it's pretty cool. ;)

    Gosh, who's the nerf-herder who scheduled RoP filming on the night CLONE WARS season II kicks off? ;)

    Don't worry I'll tape it!

    Was that to remind us of what we are going to miss? :p

    Just to make sure, it is on at 9:30 this Friday, and at 8:00 the other days it is on? (I don't watch Cartoon Network that much... I watch PBS. ;) (That is, when Cassie is over here. ;)))

    Chapter 11 picks up right where the last episode (not the movie) left off...Anakin and Asajj Ventress dogfighting in space and around the city.

    Monday is supposed to kick off the Mace Windu storyline!

    Like I said last time...Frell-ing awesome!

    Well Tivo got it and it was AWSOME. I hate that they are only 3 min long.

    Nice episode, I really loved that part where Anakin had the ship locked in his targeting system and he spoke the line "I have you now", ala Vader in the Death Star Trench.

    Just watched it online. FREAKING AWESOME! That line was great, and so was Obi-Wan's "I have a bad feeling about this." Wow, I hope the entire season goes this well!

    OMG! I was just browsing starwars.com and I got a pleasant surprise. What did I see on the main page?! Someone who is going to be appearing in future episodes of the Clone Wars cartoon! I took a screenshot of it!

    Hopefully you guys can see this. I put the screenshot in my Yahoo! pictures.

    "I have you now"
    That line was a great reference to ANH. I love when they do things like that with a character, because it brings together the films and EU.

    I liked the design of it. If you've played the Clone Wars video game, then you'd notice that it looked a lot in line with the designs of the Separatists' convoy craft, and other vehicles. Very cool stuff. I loved the clones whooping some serious a$$ using the butts of the guns to smash on droids then pump shot after shot into them. It was a great chapter. Just too bad that these things are only 3 minutes long.

    After soooo much buildup to Mace Windu's storyline...I was kinda disappointed. It's Mace blocking blaster bolts and cuting down Super BattleDroids for 3 mins (I never thought THAT would get old) I was kinda hoping to see many more jedi involved in the ground battle on Dantooine.

    The Clonetroopers in CQB with droids was cool. Really shows that the new droids are alot tougher then the original battledroids from TPM. This part of the episode really drew me into the chapter...because the fighting was practically hand-to-mechanical hand.

    And aside from the HUGE impact that Seperatist thing left behind, I don't really see the point of such a weapon? Sure it can smash and send a shock-wave across a large area...but it's such a easy target for Gunships. Early version of a World Devastator? (Dark Empire comic)

    I'm going to have to agree with Krash. That Pounding thing was kind of stupid. It was like someone ran out of ideas for cool weopons and ships. And it does seem like a very easy target.
