    Heh. Since AotC, I've wondered if Jar Jar and Threepio would ever meet their alter egos.

    Also, more Carlisle art, please. :D

    Jar Jar and C-3PO in Departure: What can possibly go right?

    That alone was enough for [face_laugh].

    What exactly did Jar Jar do? Flip the switch that caused the entire platform to flip over?

    And are Danni Faytoni and Achk Med-Beq heading for the Senate building? The last place where they'd want to go? If so, well at least Threepio and Jar Jar performed a public service by bringing two criminals to justice.

    This one was nutsen, and if this is the tip of the iceberg, some of us might literally die laughing Friday night.

    I think it's pretty safe to say that there will never be another The Clone Wars tie-in comic that can top this one. :D

    What's to stop Danni Faytoni and Achk Med-Beq from turning off the auto pilot before they get to the Senate building?

    They don't know how and the senate is close by, probably.

    Why would you ever have that button?

    Including those two guys of all people was Hat-class sweet.

    Loved the art in this one too.

    It also establishes that Bombad Jedi takes place after Malevolence trilogy.

    This one was classic. I was hoping we'd see Jar Jar and 3PO meet their alter egos sometime, and this worked out great. Maybe they'll meet each otehr again in the TV show.

    I wonder if the comics are shuffled around, too, or if they are originally made with the showing order in mind. Considering how long it probably takes to produce one of these, perhaps the former?

    The alter egos were great, I always wanted to see more of them. The art was very flattering for them too, they looked really cool.




    Small continuity question: didn't Padmé's yacht get destroyed along with the Malevolence?

    Yeah... But that issue stems from the cartoon itself, since this next episode will feature the yacht too.

    I wonder if it's a genuine oversight, or just a result of the out-of-order running of the episodes. [face_thinking]

    I think it's safe to say she has multiple yachts, since at least two get destroyed in the series. If you check the Senate hangar bay in Episode III, there appears to be at least four star skiffs too.

    Thanks for the explanation. She really needs to be more careful with those ships :p

    When asked about it, the writer for the episode commented:
    "Your republic tax dollars at work"

    (Seriously, it is in the episode discussion thread in the TV section of the forum)

    One of the wbecomics guys did say they've had to adjust the webcomics sometimes to accommodate changes in airing order- the Ambush comic had to be changed slightly when CTN/LFL decided to move Ambush up as the first episode at the last second to make for a 1-hour premiere.

    It's quite possible they threw the Malevolence reference into the comic after-the-fact to better reflct the airing order of episodes, even if Bombad may have been set before Malevolence.

    you know, I recall reference sources making a big deal of how th Ep I Queen's ship was a one of a kind piece of art, but now we see multiple yachts and skiffs...did the Naboo Royal Fleet change its policy out of fear of war losses, or bc Jar Jar got elected as Padme's partner?

    Maybe both? And no doubt having those ships and Jar Jar around caused the insurance premium on the ships to skyrocket.

    There's certainly precedent...early drafts of TPM had a whole fleet of identical transports escaping Naboo, only to have every one but the Queen's ship destroyed. To build suspense, you see. Also Han mentions the J-type as a collector's item in the NJO.

    A new one's up, it's called Transfer.

    The aurebesh on the grid says "The Wampas are attacking", could Anakin and them be on Hoth perhaps?[face_thinking]

    The aurebesh on the box says "Hoth exp" so I guess they are.:D
