    Th...that would require someone to... to... use that... paper thing... and... pens...

    What... what are these archaic written letter devices you speak of?

    I would write DH but they might need to hire a cryptologist to read my handwriting.

    Odd issue. Not sure where it's going. But Ghist Prison was cool so I'll keep going.


    Also HEY we got to see the other right assassins!

    I liked it a lot. The art was great, and the story is pretty good for a first issue. Those reptile looking aliens (maybe someone knows the species) are sooo cool :D I love dragons, dinos, lizards a lot, so I'm sold on the design :D. Looking forward for the next one!

    Bought it, read it, loved it. Not much story, yes, but awesome setup, an interesting "pro"tagonist (now waiting for Jello to tell me I should've included the "t" between the inverted commas), great art, and species diversity galore! And in the scene where those Human ice miners were forced (by Vader) to renegotiate with Nautolans I could totally feel all that prejudice, clumsiness, misunderstandings and everything that comes with interspecies contact... very intense.

    Same here! I haven't gotten around to reading Ghost Prison and Lost Command yet but I'm quite looking forward to where this story is going to go!

    Be very surprised if this tops Ghost Prison in people's eyes.

    The Lost Command is okay, but Ghost Prison is something you must not miss!

    The Lost Command is the Holiday Special to Ghost Prison's Empire Strikes Back.

    Um, lolz?

    Lost Command had exceptional depth for a Star Wars comic. Even if I like Ghost Prison (aside from the illogical ending) I very much enjoyed Lost Command too.

    What's that?

    :p

    We were just kiddin' around. I don't have the wherewithal to get up, grab a piece of paper and pencil, write a letter, get an envelope, buy a stamp, put it in the mailbox, wait a few weeks, and then see if my letter showed up in the comic. If my name was Lars Meyer, I wouldn't have to worry about that....

    Don't have a comic in front of me but I'm fairly certain there's an e-mail address for that kind of thing as well.

    I'm pretty interested in seeing how non-force user assassins plan to take out Vader.

    Bombs? Ropes? Lamp Oil?

    There are many possibilities, so long as you have enough rubies money.

    If there's enough of them, they could bury him under their own dead bodies.

    Really cool setup. It won't be as revered as Ghost Prison but i forsee this going down as a cult favorite

    Or they word the contract very carefully: "I will get the money once I have shown proof that Vader has no life" Then they take a pic of him while he is sitting in a couch and doing a Holonet marathon.

    That is easy. EMP strike.

    Screw force lightning (don't know why this is claimed to be so effective against him anyway), use an electromagnetic pulse.

    It seems to only be particularly effective when Palpatine does it.

    Not even then. Watch how long it takes for Dooku to incapacitate Anakin with lightning and compare with how long it takes Palpatine in ROTJ with the strongest force lightning ever.
