Poll: I have now made strips up to where we meet Anakin. I have two questions:

What should I name Anakin? This is a parody comic, so he will not be called Anakin. So far I've done things either by switching out each letter with the next in the alphabet, or the previous one, and the like. Post your answer.

Do you think we can get through Phantom Menace by the end of this year, assuming I release three a week for the rest of the year?

Oh shoot another question. Guess I lied. What type of player should play Anakin? And what should his name be?

- Bring It On -

 

So this is from a deleted scene. One really has to wonder what the heck George Lucas was thinking. I had the Jedi force jump to shore, which makes perfect sense. George Lucas had them pull out another sudden thing from their utility belt: Grappling hooks, which they shot to shore and then climbed to safety along. It's ridiculous. This is a dumb scene. 

A very dumb scene.

 

So obviously, it has to be featured in our comic.

 

 

By the way thank you all for your participation in the poll. I think I figured it out, but I'll leave the poll up for a bit longer to see if there's any more votes. Unlikely, but whatever.

- Is One Of The Statues Peeing Water? -

Fun Fact #1: We have now entered the section of the comic where I figured out a lot of really simple ways to make the comic higher quality and felt really dumb about not having done it before. The connections between bubbles now have black edges and are curved. Also the images should now be slightly higher quality. I also figured out a way to fit more text in smaller bubbles. It was all really simple and I feel stupid about it. :P
I will however be keeping the GM's bubble-connectors square, cuz it makes him feel more mechanical. I dunno.
Fun Fact #2: This strip marks the start of my latest batch. I went on a spree and created about thirty in like, two weeks. The time gap between creating the last one and this one are probably several months.
Fun Fact #3: I have adopted the decision to make sure I try and get through at least thirty seconds of footage a strip, and to try, at all costs, to avoid another situation like Otoh Gunga.
Fun Fact #4: The large image of the Naboo/Nidell city is not found anywhere in the movie. Rather, it is in a deleted scene, at the end of the waterfall segment - but even then, you will not find this still. I stitched it together from two screencaps. Pretty proud of it.
Fun Fact #5: The upcoming thirty-ish strips are my favorite to date.
Fun Fact #6: The CGI department that worked on Phantom Menace is really bad at keeping lighting consistent during CGI pans. Even at a glance, there is a very noticeable color and lighting change between the bottom and top half of the image. This was near impossible to fix. Part of it, I'm sure, was as it panned up, it caught a bit of the sun, and there was glare, or something, but I would still expect the bottom of the city to have the same color as the top. Another possible reason could be that the CGI in this scene was never finished because it was deleted. But I still have found similar examples throughout the movie.
Fun Fact #7: Contrary to popular belief, the reason George Lucas cut this scene was not time constraints or because the Yes Men finally said "no," but actually because the statue fountains are nude. (I'm lying.)

Spoiler

 

- At Least He's Making Sure -
I direct you to a certain Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman episode, where Lois has to do something deadly, and stop when Superman says so. Something like that. If she's a second off, she dies. She made sure to be painfully specific on if it was on the word, right after or whatevs. Don't remember the name of the episode, and it'd be to much work to try and hunt down a clip, but I'll just leave that here. Clarity is important, especially in life-threatening situations.

 

Next'un!

Spoiler

 

- Jedijitsu-
Really. Very impractical. Why Obi didn't just slice those droids to pieces or Power-er, Force Push them isn't something I can answer.
Also, pretty sure they filmed two shots of this exact same kick, one from the front and one from behind in a green-screen box, because in the next fight scene, like a minute from now, he does the exact same move. Odd, right? Yeah.

. . . or whenever this takes place, comic-wise.
This is one of my favorite strips, BTW. I always thought this scene was ridiculous. They send not one, but four astromechs to fix a problem on the roof of the ship, and three of them get sniped off by lasers from battleships that miraculously don't damage the ship, and they all seem to miss the very last one, who fixes the problem and returns to the ship unscathed.

Also they killed three astromechs without a care in the world.
I aim to remedy that.

So, my computer hates having all these images open at once. So, to save me and it some pain, I've been separating my Space Wars pages into separate documents, with, recently, about 20 pages per document.

 

Today, I opened my most recent one, sporting 17 pages, none of which you have seen, a good thirty/forty pages ahead of where we are.

Powerpoint said "PowerPoint removed content in SPACE WARS, THE GHOSTLY NUISANCE."

Every image was gone. Every. Single. One. Replaced with white blankness saying "this image cannot currently be displayed."

I'm screwed guys. There was so much stuff in there. Can anyone help? The only restorable version was from three days ago, saving thirteen out of seventeen pages, still not preferable. This is roughly eight hours of work, at least. This sucks. I'm not joking. I am so pissed. I don't know what to do.
