Wonderful story. The action is in the dialogue and how the stage has been set for some thrilling heroics to come.
UKHistory wrote:This episode is beautifully woven together. Great scenery moving from the parts of the Star Destroyer to the rebel base.
The interaction between Vader and Tylin is really neat. We see in the original film Vader battling in the political sense rival Imperials. The Marvel comics take that a step further with Baron Tagge; Shadows of the Empire has Xizor. I like that Chewie is using a similar rivalry to move the story along. There has to be an immense amount of back stabbing and jockeying for position within the Imperial hierarchy. I like this alot. Well done.
UKHistory wrote:The story is taking an even darker trajectory with the Enloe family going to hear that Rykrof is dead. Oh man. It is making my stomach turn thinking of the evil Tylin and what he will be up to.
Vader does good by saving Enloe and hiding him. But in an imperial prison. Allowing the Baron to keep Enloe's wife--yuck.
UKHistory wrote:Great look for all the customs. Enloe is perfect in the Finn body and possibly either Han Solo or some gi joe guy's forearms.
Kala looks great. Freelo is wonderful in that get up. the bounty hunter is good as well.
UKHistory wrote:I have not forgotten the protocal droid is just a head. I can't wait to see the creativity in how ridiculous he might look in the next chapter.
Just another solid A. Flashbacks were good way to catch up a new person and the direction of the story really is keeping your avid readers on pins and needles.
Well done. I have to send you some pictures. I have some hammerhead rebels you might really like.
Evilivo wrote:Congratulations on the new chapter! Looks and feels great. I liked the flashbacks, cool idea and well made. The story itself, although withought much action, was tence and intriguing till the end. Still very impressed with Tylin's nephew - pretty nasty and sleezy looking son of a... somebody I must agan admire the lightning you achieve, it gives a lot of depth and atmosphere to the scenes.
My only sugestion will be to change sometning about Vader for the next chapter - is this the ROTS BlS helmet? Personally I like it, but I think there is a more aggressive and intimidating-looking one out there. Also, in close shots, the Hasbro cape looks almost like a fishnet - too rough. Try making one of microfibre or PM me, I could try and make one, if you wish

UKHistory wrote:ENLOE! ENLOE! ENLOE! WE want some Enloe. No pressure Chewie. I just reread the latest chapter and I anxiously await the next chapter.
A belated Happy Memorial Day to the Yakface crowd.
Lance Quazar wrote:Well, it's been SEVERAL months now and, even though we talked a lot about this chapter before you posted it, I never did give official comments on the final version.
Lance Quazar wrote:I have been waiting for YEARS for the Anakin storyline to come back again and you did a marvelous, fantastic job. That's what's great about having such an incredible, history-making run like you've had. You have so much to draw from with telling your stories, so much rich history of your own creation that you can make these kinds of fantastic , deep-cut callbacks.
And it works marvelously. It's absurd to think a suspected Rebel would ever receive mercy from Darth Vader, but it totally, beautifully works. And your dialogue just sings. I always thought you did a great job using established characters (when they appear) like Dooku and Palpatine, but you've done really great work with Vader so far, as well, nailing the voice and characterization.
Lance Quazar wrote:I do like how you have used existing characters only in a limited, realistic way. No gratuitous cameos that draw attention to themselves (as Star Wars itself often does!) Just very realistic incorporation of established characters only when its appropriate and meaningful to do so.
Heck, I really like "Star Wars Rebels" and they do a similarly good job with a tricky situation. It's absurd to think those characters would be able to defeat or even really hold their own against Vader and they DON'T. They are totally outclassed.
Lance Quazar wrote:So, in the same vein, Rykrof would never be able to be ever get one over on Vader, so his release here is brilliantly done. Heck, all the other Jedi characters we've seen get their asses handed to them by Vader.
I wonder if that's how Kala will eventually go. It'll be great to find out....some day!
Lance Quazar wrote:But speaking of the rich history of this incredible series, another great thing you do is have the characters evolve over time. Obviously, Gere started out as Ryrkof's friend and partner and is now his most sinister foe. On the other hand, Traedon started out as a selfish mercenary who now has become a hero. It's wonderful that you even call that out in the story.
Through it all, Freelo remains lovable Freelo, though. And I just love the running joke with Freelo's droid. I hope he finds himself in a suitable humiliating situation as his body is rebuilt from "scrap."
Lance Quazar wrote:I'm very glad to see you're dealing with the early days of the rebellion, which I think is a great place for this series to go.
I was a little frustrated - but only at first - that Rykrof's first post-prequel story was the zombie story, since I really wanted to see him interacting with the nascent rebellion.
But I am actually preferring this take enormously. Rykrof isn't actually a founding member of the rebellion, he really isn't even a part of it, he's just a guy who has come into peripheral contact with it, but still has his own, more pressing and personal agenda.
It's much more interesting to chart what, I can only assume, will be his eventual joining. But, in the current storyline, that could be years away! It's a very fascinating progression. Not at all the obvious, straightforward choice, something more oblique and much more interesting.
Lance Quazar wrote:That said, and I think we may have discussed this, I think you have a great opportunity for a time jump in your story. With Rykrof going to a remote prison world, who knows how long he'll be there? Years, even. He could come out with his son a young adult, with only a dim memory of his father.
Lance Quazar wrote:We might even buy that Alyssa could have married Gere, out of desperation and fear, having believed Rykrof to be dead. And Rykrof could be a "Count of Monte Cristo"-esque character, turned hard and jaded by years of imprisonment.
So many fascinating ways the story could take off from there! (it would also put you closer to the timeline of the classic movies, which would be cool. I'd love to see the events of the Star Wars movies told from Rykrof's perspective, just as we saw the prequel/Clone Wars through his eyes, too.)
