Episode 1528: Mopey-Shtick; or, The Wail


This scene was written this way, verbatim, in our planning notes years before we got up to starting detailed work on Return of the Jedi. The allusion to Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan was just too delicious pass up.

As it turned out, when we got to the sailbarge fight, we came up with a better idea, and ran with it in the actual comic. I, personally, was very sad to see this one fall by the wayside. But I'm pleased that it has new life and finally sees the light of day as the final non-canon bonus strip in this extended intermission after the original six films.

As previously announced, the next strip will be the opening strip of our treatment of Rogue One, appearing on Tuesday 1 August. See you then as we continue the Darths & Droids journey into an exciting new frontier!


Boba Fett: Solo! A quarter century have I sought Obi-Wan Kenobi, the man who murdered my parents! I know you knew him! Where is he?
Han Solo: He's dead! I saw him die, cut down by Darth Vader!
Boba Fett: Noooo! It can't be!
Boba Fett: I!
Boba Fett: Need!
Boba Fett: My!
Boba Fett: Revenge!!
Boba Fett: Obi-Wan, you escape my wrath, and now even in death you taunt me!
Boba Fett: To the last, I will grapple with thee... from Hell's heart, I stab at thee! For hate's sake, I spit my last breath at thee!
Luke: Yeesh. It feels almost sad to kill him.
C-3PO: We've done far worse than kill him. We've hurt him. And we'll go on hurting him.
C-3PO: We leave him marooned for all eternity in the centre of a horrendous monster... eaten alive! Eaten alive...!
Boba Fett: {inside Sarlacc} Obi-WAAAAAAAAAANNN!!!!
