swSANDSTORMToday’s strip is set during one of the deleted scenes. This is a pretty cool scene from Return of the Jedi which, though not vital to the plot, was still nice to see.

Luke gets ANOTHER kiss from Leia while blurry-eyed Han stands right beside them. We chose not to give the BMS characters the luxury of protective robes and scarves for this strip for two reasons. Firstly, where in the heck did they obtain these between the Skiff landing site and the Falcon? Secondly, we really didn’t feel like drawing them as it would have just made making our twice weekly update goal more challenging. But the added benefit for Leia fans is that we get to appreciate her fine body. Oh, and everyone’s favorite Jawa is back!

Although Threepio and Artoo Detoo aren’t shown in this strip, they are indeed present (just for the record).

Here is the reconstructed deleted Sandstorm scene. Although it lacks audio, if you have the Star Wars Blu Rays, you can watch the whole scene. Otherwise, you can read the Return of the Jedi transcript online to get the dialogue that way.

SEEKING MILITARY EXPERTS WITH A SENSE OF HUMOR

If you are in the United States military, or have served, I’d be interested in talking to you and getting your perspective on the experience. I’m working on a contemporary sci-fi special missions book and would like to get some first hand accounts and anecdotes to help flesh out and do justice to the characters and setting. If you feel you have some stories or knowledge you’d like to share, then email me at bluemilkspecial@gmail.com.

PATREON SUBSCRIPTIONS

logo_emblemPatreon offers readers a way to support the artists they love with a regular subscription to their work. It’s basically like an ongoing Kickstarter campaign, where you can pledge to give us an amount which you specify every time we release a new piece of content (a webcomic strip). Don’t worry, you can set a maximum amount in case you’re worried about spending too much in a month.

Just so you all know, WE ARE NOT SUDDENLY CHARGING YOU FOR BLUE MILK SPECIAL CONTENT, IT IS STILL FREE. We are just asking for help and ​Patreon offers a way for those of you who can afford to support us to do so. At the same time, you’ll have a much closer connection to us and receive a lot of exclusive Patreon only Blue Milk Special content and perks to show our appreciation. Want to see Boba Fett beyond the Sarlacc pit? Support us and let us know what you want more or less of. We will listen and we want be able to chat with fans.

If we can get some extra help financially, then it makes the project easier and provides an additional incentive for Leanne and myself to create new strips more frequently. That means more content for you guys. All readers will benefit, but ​Patreon supporters will get extra good stuff.
