    If I knew the first thing about Flash, I'd have something worthwhile to add. But I don't. Not really in the job description. Not that I have a job description, mind you.

    But, in the interests of being constructive, perhaps there's contact info here that would be useful. I know I'll be using it.

    As far as the vertical format, we wanted to do something that wouldn't preclude this thing ever seeing print, like the webstrips that will likely never see the printed page (in the States, anyway).

    Steve Sansweet can keep that job! ;)

    Seriously, though, all feedback is appreciated. And since this is somewhat of a long haul, I'm hoping we can evolve as we move on. Two down, twenty more to go!

    The WebComics are pretty cool so far. I should make a custom Commander Kite figure, he's pretty awesome.

    Most likely once a week, right before each new episode, since it appears that they tie in with specific episodes. This week we got two, because we got two new episodes, but we'll probably only get one a week from now on. That'd be my guess.

    Though, I've been known to make mistakes... from time to time.

    I hope so... Thanks RF! :) I hope that this is a feature that won't just disappear one day (like the excellent Visual Guide did).

    As an aside, using Safari on a mac, I didn't have any problems zooming in or dragging/scrolling about. My earlier comments just wished there was more zoom options other than "zoomed all the way in", "defeaulty zoomed out with grey borders" and "fit t o screen". A couple middle options would be great.

    Personally, I don't mind a tall Phuii. I don't think we should automatically assume all the podracer pilots in TPM are typical (or maximum) height for their species. Pilots often tend to be on the shorter side. Mars Guo is about the same height as Leia, Master Ares about the same height as Jango, so the height variance in their species isn't any more extreme than in humans.

    At first, I had trouble reading the comic pages right, but with a little fiddling, I got it to the right size. It may just be the controls are a little touchy.

    And I agree with the comments about height. But instead of Jango for the tall person, I'd have picked Qui-Gon. If IMDB is to be believed, Liam Neeson's more than a foot taller than Carrie Fisher! No reason aliens can't have the same kind of range.

    Not to mention Grievous and Sk'ar. Same species, drastic height-difference. ;)

    The comic will posted once a week prior to the weeks new episode. The rotation of artists is Myself, Katie Cook, Jeff Carlisle and Grant Gould. I did the first 2 stories, this week will be Mr. Gould's story, followed by Katie, Jeff and then back to me.

    Not every story will be DIRECTLY wrapped into that week's episode, but will have implications somewhere in the grand scheme of things.

    I finally "got" the online comics once Ambush began. They're promos of a sort. I really like each episode being prefaced this way. Zooming issues aside, it's a pretty cool idea.

    So there's a new comic up (Thanks, Mani). I do so love hearing "General Skywalker". And it looks like the Y-wings are coming out. Sweet.

    Nice. I could appreciate a good ol' space battle.

    Also, Better zoom if I'm not mistaken.

    So Anakin makes Y-Wings Y-Wings? I wish he was personally responsible for less.

    Puts an interesting twist on his gunning them down over Yavin, doesn't it, when he's the first guy to put them into service?

    I don't believe so. I think Y-wings are in use (if Shipyards of Doom is any indication). They just aren't that easy to get at this point.

    What I meant was that apparently Anakin turned them into the quality fighters that hang on until the Rebellion, as the clones don't seem to think too much of them in their current state and Anakin says he'll improve them.

    There's two Clones named Broadside and Matchstick, who fly the lead Y-wing of Shadow Squadron. Sounds good to me.:D

    Since this is the BTL-B model (named in the PocketModel card game), and the Rebellion uses BTL-S3 and BTL-A4 models, with no mention of anyone other than Koensayr engineers behind them, I'd think his input would be limited to making the ones in this squadron finished, since they appeared to be not fully operational yet.

    Sweet comic. I really like seeing Anakin throwing his weight around. One of the things I've had the most trouble with in TCW is seeing Vader in Anakin, but this comic he really evoked that future Vader sensibility. It's nice to see him acting more like Vader, but in the ordinary things, not just in the all-out cruel things. This makes me even more excited for this week's episode.

    Keep up the great work, Pablo and Co.!!

    TDHAritist and Pabawan- I love the style of the comic, based on the way it is being done, what are the chances that the comics book will either be released in the dvd set of the first season and/or printed form? I sure don't want to happen what happened with the webstrip, were no one wants to publish them beucase of the format.
