  1. Hey now, Ryan!

    Ben is the *second* person to choose Boba Fett’s jetpack in the Galactic Questionnaire! I chose it back in your second episode! In fact, I think I’ve chosen pretty much the opposite of everyone on every question! I think I had more answers in common with Ben than any of your other guests.

  2. I never thought I would be excited about any kind of C-3PO spotlight, but first you grabbed my attention with Robinson and Harris reuniting. I mean, c’mon, Cindy and I cover The Starman Chronicles over on Super Mates (thanks for the vacation episode plug, by the way). But then when you and Ben discussed the story…WOW. I NEED this comic. I’m buying this comic.

    Just from your discussion, I have to agree with Ben, this sounds like a great science fiction story, even without the Star Wars trappings. I could see this as a Twilight Zone episode, if they had the effects and the budget for it.

    Great, great episode!!!


  3. Good episode, but c’mon, C3PO? How transparent can you be in trying to increase show downloads?

    Ben’s disappointment over his one daughter’s love of Jar Jar was palpable.

  4. Robinson and Harris would be enough to get me to read this, had I known. Robinson is a heck of a writer and can find the key element to an under used character and he does it well, here. I think he’s a bit underrated by people who’ve mostly seen his later work. He was brilliant up through Starman and Leave it to Chance. Afterwards, he had flashes; but, his demons seem to dampen his light. It sounds like it was at full wattage here. Seriously, though, even if Starman isn’t your thing, check out Robinson on 67 Seconds, Illegal Alien, Grendel: Four Devils, One Hell, his Terminator stories, London’s Dark, and his Grendel store in A1. His Firearm stories were some of the best in the Ultraverse line. His Legends of the Dark Knight arc, Blades, was fantastic. Then, there’s The Golden Age. Leave it to Chance was a tremendous comic that won Eisners. the man could tell a story. This is that same Robinson.

    Harris can draw just about anything and make it interesting.

    These are the kind of Star Wars stories I love. I hope we get more of this level, than just the standard stories.

  5. Ryan says he doesn’t like Starman: take a drink.

    Sounds like a cool issue and probably worth grabbing for my Robinson comic box.

    Btw, the comments attributed to me in the feedback section actually belong to a different Paul. Perhaps everyone should call me Flanger to avoid confusion.

  6. One of my favorite sub-categories of entertainment are things that are WAY better than they have any right to be. Things like the first Pirates of the Caribbean film, The Lego Movie or The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl. These are things that have no business being, or indeed any need to be, any good and yet rise above that to achieve something all the more special for being unexpected. This comic fits very well into that pantheon. Who would have expected C-3PO of all characters to be featured in a comic that deals with such heady concepts as loyalty, purpose and identity in a mature fashion? Bravo comic, bravo.
