    No idea abut the symbol.

    The location could also be Hypori.

    It's a mark [link=http://www.jeffcarlisle.com/]Jeff Carlisle[/link] puts on his art, kinda like a signature.

    The droid hologram's dialogue at the end, though setting up Dooku informing Grievous about Nute most likely, also fits in very nicely as a post-Malevolence situation, making it fit nicely between Destroy Malevolence and Rookies (as Grievous has been off of Anakin's scopes for weeks at that point- makes sense his rejuvenation would be then).

    I liked this one. Simple, nice showcase of each of the artists, and...Kaleeshness. :D

    I was kinda hoping for a Sk'ar cameo though.

    On closer inspection...the Hodges page shows a cybernetic body. So... hurm. :p

    I took that as symbolic, it's a dream after all.

    Yep!

    And keep a close eye on the episode tonight, because you may see something that'll remind you of that page.. ;)

    This "Dreams of Grievous" chapter was a lot of fun... It was cool to draw pre-cyborg Grievous sans mask. I geeked out a bit over that. And all of the other artists drew such rockin' pages..

    Thanks for the nice feedback, everyone!

    That was really enjoyable.

    Pity there was no Ronderu, though.

    wait, don't artists get VIP red...

    and I am still dying to knw the backstories of all the memories, assuming they are real memories, and what the various worlds and species were, and why he was killing a Skrilling warlord (?), and even the neat world he was leading the droids on.

    [awards self 25 brownie points for spotting the Skrilling]

    This was personally one of my favorites so far.

    As for it being a "Dream"... these are past events. You should consider "Visionaries" as "Infinities" content because that is not Grievous' origin.

    That's a shame. Especially if the new one is that crap from the Target site.
    At least they went with the Visionaries design, though - but I have a feeling that was more to appeal to Hasbro's figure than the Visionaries story.

    We'll have to consider more than just "Visionaries" Infinities, though, as Greivous' backstory has been established in other sources, too.

    It'll be a real shame if they go with this inferior wannabe Jedi backstory, but I'd be confident enough someone will come along and make it fit with the other, somehow or another.

    Yes, the short Target-bio doesn't in itself overwrite anything in particular, but we'll see in tomorrows episode...

    And while Visionaries in itself have always been in a slightly uncertain position as far as canon goes, it did mostly retell the story from LoE and both was later referenced in both Able's Grievious article and the Essential Guide to Aliens if I remember correctly. (and most likely CSWE as well) So it's not just one source we're throwing out, if that is indeed what they are doing.

    I'm mildly concerned about the episode myself, but there's nothing in that comic that contradicts Abel's article, really. It seems to suggest that he'd already lost a limb or two prior to becoming Grievous, but that's not impossible.

    I don't know how accurate that is. I'd say that, taken by itself, the Target bio overwrites most of Grievous's shuttle crash/cyborgification backstory. It can be made to fit, but as is, it's a major contradiction of Eyes of Revolution and Lord of War.

    Certain point of view: Maybe Grievous sometimes wished he could be a Jedi to better defend his people from the Yam'rii? Maybe, after the shuttle crash, he had to undergo several distinct procedures before he was completely cyborgified and operational?

    I don't have any idea about the "his diabolical plot" bit. You could say San Hill brainwashed him to think he'd modified himself, but I think that's pretty stupid, and I don't know how well it fits with existing stories.

    Regardless, it's pretty clear that the implication is that the series of cyborgification procedures he underwent were self-inflicted and happened over a lengthy period of time, with him gradually becoming more and more robotic. The webcomic, even if you argue that it doesn't contradict anything in and of itself, supports this idea.

    Grievous' old name does translate to "The Dreamer."

    Cool, so Qymaen Jai-Sheelal means dreamer? Awesome.

    Yes, I came up with that name without help.

    I hope this episode doesn't contradict Grievous' origins, as laid down in Insider. Between that and the new "Order 66" book contradicting the Mando article from Insider, Abel's gonna develop a complex...

    But really, it could start being a big problem if it's established that all narratives (novels, cartoons, comics) can ignore and contradict any other source material. Every one of those authors will start worrying about what they're writing.
