#4 - Time to Die, Jedi...
#5 - Old Friends


Just yer average GIMPin' here, nothing major. Decided to cut this in half, and make the next comic short, so I could leave yeh all at a cliffhanger. Oh, and fail in 1 shot, the cropping got screwed.

The story was meh. That's all I can say for it. Force making a last stand, Admiral captured and locked in room with her captor. The GIMP, was also meh. While you're making good use of the blur, and I still envy those blaster bolts, you really do need to work on background changes. The Artee is way too clipped, and way too blurred. Advise you go 800% mag and path every last detail for optimal resolution Wink . Also, I can still see the brush prints in the force wave Razz .

Yeah, great special effects!

With the sunset one, the clone could have more carefully "cut" out, but otherwise, it was good!

It keeps the 'Tactical', but the 'Strike/Recon/Assault/Intimidation' changes each 'season'. Wink

Change it to 'Panda' or something before we form the 815th-o-tron and flatten you. Wink

I like it, but I'm so confused with this many comics, I'm going to have to go back and reread the last few. When was Anna captured. I think I missed it.

Alpha is definatly one of the most BA villians in any of the comics here! Nice work other than the fail slide.

I was gonna add a scene with a RAS going down, then Alpha blowing it up, but that'd take up unnessecary time, and we can all assume that if Alpha just broke into the ship, he captured Anna. Wink

So, wait, Anna wasn't captured in a previous comic? You cut it from this one?

Bad choice. It wasn't unneeded time, it would explain what's going on in the comic...

And give Alpha more screen time Laughing !

Okay, just reread your last few comic (though 4 didn't show up, I remember it) and here's my two cents on the seiries as a whole.

It jumps a hellava lot. I mean, maybe you do need more fillers. Or make less time pass between each comic. Like last time we saw Ana, she and Viper were interragating an old Lady and waiting for Arth. And now in comic five she's randomly with Alpha, who never captured her. And when did Arth leave her to go be with the Jedi.

There's some jumps that confuse more. That's all. They're good though, and rereading them helped me piece together this comic a little more. I still have a lot of unansweared questions though. I'm hoping they'll be known later.

Well, I'm not entirely done with the old lady yet... Wink

In the scene in the last comic, Anna was in a shuttle enroute to the fleet exiting Hyperspace. Upon arrival, she's captured.

You didn't miss it because it didn't happen. Apparently Alpha's only telling half the story with the comic - we just have to take his word on the rest. Razz

darn. Trying to get better at that one. Thanks Jinj-e.

Yeah, I'd advise no huge time jumps. Each should lead into the next. I mean, make nothing major be missed.
