    I was really getting interested in the events on Coruscant, with the Jedi still having *some* nominal authority over the clones, and the increase in security.

    This prison break stuff is okay, but I agree that the art is very hard to understand in some panels. I think Tom Hodges is a great artist, but sometimes I don't know what happened.

    That's okay, I'm actually enjoying it overall.

    I totally agree on that. Usually Barriss is one of my favourite characters, but right now all the prison scenes are boring because you don't understand what's happening. It was much better with scenes that are taking place on Coruscant.

    They just used the exclamation "Jango's Bones!" in today's installment. Ouch. Who's approving this stuff? Must be the Holiday Special team reunited for one special engagement.

    ha ha ha storm.

    I was just going to say, today's installment was alright, but it contained the greatest line of all time.

    "Jango's Bones!" is even better than "Great Scott!"

    Just got the latest Republic comic in the mail. She's looking pretty buff. Almost a little too much. Combine that with the sarcastic 'males' comment...much fear do I have...much fear...

    Is it just me or is this becoming less interesting because of "Labyrinth of Evil"? This whole Palpatine/Shaak Ti/Stass Allie thing on Coruscant... it's sort of like, been there, done that. I hope that the strip will reveal something we don't already know.

    Agreed. I think they'll maybe get more into the Senate and the increased security.

    I liked how we saw how RoF fit into the events in LoE - so THAT'S why Nute was out of the loop in the comic strip.

    And we'll see what's going on with the Outer Rim.

    Yeah, the events on Utapau are what interest me the most, I hope we get back there. But I presume Grevious went straight from Utapau to Coruscant. And the remaining Seperatists aren't really that exciting.

    Now that Barriss is in the Aayla story, I'd like to see what happens when they get back to Coruscant (I presume they do anyway). More Padmé/Bail stuff would be nice. And I don't suppose there will be any Anakin/Obi-Wan because we've pretty much got them covered until the movie... at least I think we do.

    I agree.

    Then again, on the Anakin/Obi Wan front, in comic strip 31 Palpatine mentions sending them to Tythe to capture Count Dooku, Yoda expresses reservations, but Mace reluctantly agrees. Will this be shown in future strips, or is their adventure to Tythe shown in the Clone Wars second season or Labyrinth of Evil (doesn't this comic strip take place the latest though?)

    Just a thought, so we might end up seeing Anakin/Obi Wan in this strip after all

    That mission is fully covered in "Labyrinth of Evil." There's really not much extra they could do in the webstrip.

    Both are taking place simultaneously, so it's hard to say now which will be the "closest" to the movie... because we're literally talking days/hours before. The book ends [hl=black]with Palpy's kidnapping, Dooku and Anakin/Obi-Wan heading to Coruscant.[/hl] One assumes that when Ani/Obi get back they will immediately go after Dooku. This is a very narrow window of time.

    What I find interesting is the line that Aayla says to her padawan regarding Bly on strip 50 "He's more loyal then I am. He stays."

    I also like that Jedi at the end, as he seems to have quite a fearless streak in him.

    Hmmm...Tom Hodges, the RoF artist, said in the 3SA that the webstrip is about to get crazy for all the characters.

    I.e., the action steps up a notch.

    Excellent.

    Though action is hard because we only get a teeny bit at a time.

    So they conveniently didn't mention that Padawan's name... though he's with Master Corobb, of course Whie's first Master died so... tell us dammit!

    And for those who didn't catch the reference, [link=http://www.starwars.com/databank/character/roroncorobb/]Master Corobb[/link] is the Ithorian mentioned in LoE as one of the four Jedi with Palpatine when Grievous attacks, and along with the [link=http://www.starwars.com/databank/character/foulmoudama/index.html]Talz[/link] is one of the two Jedi Shaak Ti can't recall having seen before (the joke being that they were the two Jedi who lost the vote to appear in the CW cartoon).

    Well, I think between the three of us, we could act as a Clone Wars compendium for 3NS. ;)

    This is tying in directly with Reversal of Fortune now.

    Which I don't really understand - even given the various subplots, there's still 100 days until ROTS...

    :p

    Well I suppose if you made a tiny webstrip from all the events during the Battle of Coruscant in "Labryinth" you might get 100 days worth... I suppose RoF will cover parallel events to the novel because we've already caught up to the exact same time.

    And there's still the possibility we'll revisit Utapau.
