Sometimes I hate myself.

Sometimes an idea pops into my head, and I think, ďHeh. That would be funny.Ē I donít think about the amount of work it would require to draw or any of the logistics in executing the strip. I only think about that stuff AFTER Iíve started and the suffering has begun.

So this is one of those times I bit off more than I could chew. The joke is a soft parody on a memorable scene from Empire Strikes Back. (I really have to stop the Star Wars references.) The concept just struck me as screamingly funny, and I had to do it. I cracked open my Empire Strikes Back storybook (publication date 1980) and got studying. I even included 2-1B, the medical droid from Hoth. Now THATíS nerdy!

I really had to work at that reaction pic of Daphne in the last panel. Itís really hard to draw a picture that suggests someone is going to momentarily spit out whatís in her mouth but hasnít quite gotten around to it. I think I succeeded.

Kevin might recognize the girls in the medical booth. Iím not sure when Eile and Sunny became nurses, but these things happen.

That's not more disgusting than that time when I've found a cockroach inside of the coffee maker!

Oh, I can beat that. At the school where I teach, they had a hot chocolate maker that started to pour slowly. They kept it in operation for a while, but eventually they opened it up and found the source of the blockage: a dead mouse was jammed in the spout. That meant that people had been drinking hot chocolate that had been carefully filtered through a rotten mouse carcass. Now THAT'S good drinking!

Yeah, I don't really think this is the most fetching bikini, though. It was vaguely modeled on the ridiculous diaper-type garment Luke was wearing in the bacta tank. Shudder.

This one was fun. Star Wars is as Star Wars does. And I am glad that last panel worked.

I dunno. He's been tinkering with them for so long, I'm kind of past caring. I still have the originals on VHS. Those are the ones I show to my kid. I wouldn't even care, really, if all the tinkering looked good, but it's like they're adding sad, bargain-basement video game quality CGI to the movies. Why? Leave it be. I'm all for fixing obvious mistakes, like in the original where the light sabres would frequently flicker out and become cheesy lighted sticks at certain angles, but don't alter content.
