    Not the first time they've shown up in Canon (Poe Dameron 7 got there first). My headcanon is that these Rakatans are from an offshoot that didn't lose their Force sensitivity 25,000-odd years ago because they had isolated themselves from the Infinite Empire and began to work on changing aspects of themselves. They have likely only become inhabitants of Rakata Prime and Galactic Republic citizens since c. 1000 BBY.

    I also thought #47 was nothing special, but I'll list the things I enjoyed:

    Entertaining bits of writing:
    • Tunga-as-Hubi ad-libbing with Threepio at his shoulder. "We've got many more. Dozens!" "It's boring. The mollusk harvest is very boring."

    • Chewie repeatedly grabbing and shoving Hubi's head in front of the biosignature scanners. I like to imagine it makes the same 'bip' as passing an item through a supermarket checkout. "Landing clearance." -bip- "Docking bay doors." -bip- "Cell doors." -bip-

    • Chewie shaking himself dry like a dog. Man, imagine how much more a Wookiee weighs when soaking wet.
    Art:
    • I did not notice any of the weird, incongruous facial colorings in this issue! I could read the characters' expressions at a glance without becoming distracted by the faces themselves. Please, stay this way...

    • I think the nicest art was on the Opee sea killer and the shots of the opera performance.

    Predicition:
    Master Barr is the responsible one for the maiming of Lee-Char. He's already fallen to the dark side and probably lashes out at the king in desperation. Will subvert most people's expectations.

    100% agree. This is the first time I actually laughed out loud reading one of these comics concerning your entertaining bit #3. Surprisingly enjoyable middle arc issue.

    I love that you didn't say "that would be interesting" or anything but just said that it will subvert expectations.

    Wouldn't the Empire have been happy to spread that story around? If that were the case I would have liked to have seen some hint of reservations against Jedi by the Mon Cala people or something.

    I really hope Lee Char survives... that was heartbreaking to read. :(

    You know, Master Barr is a Jedi. He couldn't lash out at anyone, it's not in his character.

    It's not unprecedented in canon, with Pong Krell and all.

    Ferren Barr is a political idealist. Not a murderer.

    I was thinking in the context of Jack's prediction.

    The Jedi use their power for....nope I'm all out of movie quotes here.

    But seriously, I doubt Barr will go to the Dark Side. He's just a bit cunning, that's all. This series has done a good job of showing use different types of Jedi with different strengths and weaknesses.

    Hellova twist and the issue was happily very Threepio centric with lots of monsters. I approve heartily.
