This ends our story arc "The Invisible Hands". We will be publishing the usual three intermission strips over the next three weeks, and then we will begin publishing our treatment of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens one week later, returning to our normal update schedule of three strips per week (Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays).
Yes, we're excited! It was a long wait for Episode IX, but now that it's out we're ready to start work on the final trilogy!
When we began Darths & Droids way back in 2007, there were only six Star Wars films, and we had no idea they would be making any more. But we're happy to be able to continue this journey with you into the next stage.
C-3PO: What about the droid "clones" on Kamino?
R2-D2: Yeah, we should go there and sort it out.
GM: Actually, I just have an NPC epilogue scene.
Waldorf:: So, mission accomplished; we've played the music and we've lit the lights of Order.
Statler:: It's time to embrace the eternal sleep.
Statler:: It's time to say goodnight.
Statler:: It's time to lower the curtain....
Waldorf:: So that's it; we're just shutting down?
Statler:: As a droid, one fears Death not!
Waldorf:: Ahh! That is not dead which can eternal lie...
Statler:: Precisely, my good fiend!
Chewbacca: On second thought, let's not go to Kamino. 'tis a silly place.
