When I was a kid, it wasn’t that clear to me why the Cloud Cars were shooting at the Falcon as it approached Cloud City. Even though they were warning shots, it tended to be quickly forgotten and overshadowed by Lando’s apparent betrayal of his “friend” Han. The truth is, Lando and Han were indeed old buddies, and Lando did the best he could in the situation – better than many give him credit for. Chris Simmons, of Star Wars Facebook’d, one of the Lando’s biggest fans, explains it more succinctly than I can.
“To be fair, Lando did try to give Han some warnings. Having security take shots at the Falcon, and giving him a cold greeting on the platform was all Lando could really do. I’m sure he was being watched all of the time, but that didn’t stop him from keeping our heroes informed of what’s going down, rescuing Leia, and doing his best to catch up with Fett. Lando is the MAN!”
We are a TWICE WEEKLY webcomic again, for the time being at least. So you can check Mondays and Fridays for the latest strips and you can always view the upcoming strip in advance by voting for us at TopWebComics.com. And don’t forget we have finally set up a Blue Milk Special Forum for readers to converse and discuss the webcomic, Star Wars and everything else that we have in common. Unlike the comments features on each blog post, the Forums allow for much more detail and ongoing discussion, and hopefully a stronger sense of community among those of us who are able to find the funny side of the Force. You can also make requests and suggestions for future BMS strips, cameos and direction.
As the Forum is brand new, this is a great opportunity to jump in and join the community early. There will be many wrinkles to iron out as we get the hang of things. We will be looking for moderators to help nurture and facilitate the discussions.
Episode 5: Agents of Doom
Check out the final episode of I HATE EARTH. This has been a great series from comedian, and friend, Kevin Conn. The series was built around the masked character Beatrix Skullo, who was the evolution of one of Kevin’s earliest characters. I know it was an enormous amount of work, and involved the time and talent of many, coordinated and driven by Kevin’s creative passion. I think the end result has been a joy to watch and his most polished work to date.
So, congratulations on what, in my mind, has been a successful series of shorts. Here’s hoping for more, whether they are I HATE EARTH, or something entirely new.
