Chased out of a city twice in one day, that’s got to be a record or something. It might not seem like one day but technically, back at chapter 7 the party arrived in Modsef in the morning, had their fight, portal and monster, Galain’s camp, got to Neobi late afternoon, and now the sun is setting. It’s like Warren Ellis’s Freak Angels, I think the first 7 chapters are just one day, and the whole comic takes place over like 3 and a half days. It’s a great read, just like everything else Warren Ellis writes.

On a complete unrelated note, in Star Wars episode 2 it’s reviled that Boba Fett is a clone, I wasn’t too crazy about this (and I think Jason hated it). But I was re-reading Tales of the Bounty Hunters, one of the best SWEU books. In the tale of Boba Fett, there’s a line that says “…the man who had taken the name of Boba Fett…” (something to that effect). Jaster Mereel killed the Jango clone Boba Fett and took his name. So clearly Daniel Keys Moran (guy who wrote it) knew that G. Lucas was going to fuck up down the line, and left himself a way to save the Fett man. Thank you DKM!

Darn right I hate it. Because you basically say this guy whose grown up in nothing but strife and turmoil and became the best at what he does is no longer relevant. Boba Fett is a clone of the greatest bounty hunter in the star wars universe, Jango Fett, and though he's not "enhanced" like those other clones his new biological history seems to cheapen the element I liked most about Boba Fett. That he was a loner that when the chips were down he'd survive just like he always did.
I could rant... and probably would rant for a long while on Star Wars, but there's really no point.
And I agree, go read Warren Ellis, a Warren Ellis a day keeps science at bay.

Loth is starting to sound like Gimli with that comment.

Personally, I couldn't give a toss less if Boba Fett was a clone of Jango Fett or not. I don't really reckon that some other upstart numpty deserves the name though. Better a clone than an imposter.
