So, is Bormus a Gran colony?
Is Bormus the HQ of Keonsayr?
Is Koensayr a Gran company?
While I imagine someone else may take it and run with it, I see Bormus as a Koensayr development plant. And the Gran being there is meant as a nod to Ask Aak appointing his friends and toadies into places of influence. But I guess that's conjecture, since it's not on the page.
Is that all authorial intent counts for these days? Conjecturing about your own work?
Is Skytop Station a Lucrehulk-class Core Ship?
Pabawan, using the print function of the web comics, the type-face comes out blurry and hard to read when the pages are printed off. Is there anything that can be done about this? Printing them off is the way I like to read them, but the blurry type is really aggravating.

Here's to Jar Jar being useful, eh?
I'm leaving it to the Clone Wars to redeem him somewhat.
I'm pretty sure the new costume he's wearing sets him back about 1,000 fanpoints. Lavender-colored silk gloves? Really?
Hmm, the reference to the Banking Clan as a lost ally to Dooku is a little odd, as I was just reading Shipyards of Doom, which seems to be set just before the Malevolent arc which is happening during this comic from what I gather, where they say the Banking Clan isn't an ally of the Separatists but just sells to them.
However, the Wampa-skin rug is a nice touch
Now Jar Jar's place makes sense. PadmÃ© feels indebted to him for his part in the defense of Naboo, and though she realizes that he has the mental capacity of a very young child, she is trying to repay him with a good job and high position, even though he isn't suited for them in any way. A nobel charity, but totally dangerous, but it also seems to jive with an overall sense of incompetence or at least flawedness surrounding the Senator in this comic. A lot more interesting than I was expecting from a PadmÃ© comic...
The IBC's flip-flopping so far has been strange. I always wanted it brought back to the EU after it was mentioned in a couple of older books, but over time it seemed to have been forgotten, so I had assumed it only applied to the first few months of the war (prior to the Battle of Muunilinst). Now it's suddenly back without any warning.
But I wonder if, in this instance at least, something else is going on. I find it hard to believe that Padme just "happens" to run into Grievous and get kidnapped in the next episode. Perhaps the IBC set her up? (This theory will be most likely be proven incorrect by Friday, but who knows?)
I agree that the IBC thing sounds really fishy. The question is what do they, and more importantly, Palpatine gain from sending PadmÃ© into this trap? We of course don't know the exact details yet, but it sounds like a test for Anakin, or an attempt to push him faster along the path to the dark side if she dies. I don't really see this being anything against PadmÃ© personally, as she's really no threat to Palpatine.
I agree; if Palpatine wanted Padme dead, he could do it in any number of ways. The problem is accepting the alternative: Padme just happened to fly into Grievous' path, and Anakin just happened to be chasing his ship.
Then again, I might be getting ahead of myself here, and there's a whole other explanation why she flies into him.
Well Threepio is looking for Anakin's whereabouts, so it's possible he figures it out, PadmÃ© decides to surprise Anakin, and jumps into whatever system as Anakin and Obi-Wan are fighting the Malevolence in, and gets stupidly captured because she apparently doesn't understand the concept of war.
That or she thinks she can help the Naboo forces that arrive to help Anakin and Obi-Wan.
Hurrah for NewsNets references! Now, if only Coruscant Daily Newsfeed and/or the Canted Circle could make an appearance...
If anything, at this point, Palpatine wants Padme as healthy as possible. If Anakin had lost Padme during The Clone Wars, Palpatine's plans would have been screwed. He would have had to have one hell of a plan B to match Anakin's Padme obsession.
"I can bring her back, you know."
Anakin's a credulous dope. He'd fall for it.
Better late than never: [link=http://www.starwars.com/clonewars/comic/]Mouse Hunt[/link]
zNot bad,i accepted more,but it will do.
The Separatists should have an entire army consisting solely of Mouse Droid Wheels! Three times more effective than your average B1!
Like I said in the Clone Wars thread, either this what we get when we mix Star Wars with that movie Mouse Hunt, or this is what clonetroopers do when they get bored. Either way -
Mouse droids are now more powerful than you can possibly imagine. Or at least a video game enemy waiting to be used in the "big blob turns into little blobs when attacked" kind of way.
When will the next one arive.
Hmmm....uh, okay, yeah. No web strip up yet. Hmph.
