^This^

Hasn't there been a motif throughout Continuity, that the Wookiees end up Enslaved by the current tyrannical Empire Placeholder? Republic Bounty Hunter speaks for it's self.

Page 1: Wtf? Pine trees on Dantooine? That looks a lot like Kashyyyk to me (with pine trees). And why does anyone even care about Dantooine, anyway? It's another planet on the arse-end of space.

Page 2: They're not even trying to have that bounty hunter not look like a Jango/Boba Fett ripoff. Is he gonna pull out two pistols and shoot a missile out of his arse, too?

Page 3: Imperial officer-ripoff uniforms and they're trying to convince us that a dude with a handkerchief over his eyes can operate computer equipment. I don't think I need to mention the absurdity of that Jango Fett knockoff surviving an anti-infantry round without so much as some dirt on his armor.

I have a red mark on my forehead from hitting it so many times

Yeah I was confused....This is getting weirder by the minute.

Only good thing is that my girl Bastila Shan has a relative in this, and you know what that means... :3heart: :naughty: :3heart:

Yup, another "Ugh" when reading this.

My thoughts exactly. It's getting a bit depressing now...

I really hope the dialogue in the game is MANY times better than this.

3 pages, and no story at all... ok...
It didn't draw me in. It didn't excite me. In fact if we're talking about how it made me feel about the MMO, it actually scared me. I hope the writers are putting more effort into the game than that...

I'd like to compare this to the possible game, but the difference in quality between the games and comics has always been pretty high. Only read a few good Star Wars comics and the rest are about as poor as this.

It doesn't seem as if they are so much putting any quality or anything into the comic as it look like something they made up at a meeting one day to make sure they had -something- being released every week or so.

I liked this. No more stupid "Good Wookie" stereotyping. Long live the Sith Wookie!

As for the Republic Bounty Hunter, why not? The Republic is historically the most corrupt, lowest integrity government the Galaxy has ever had. Why would they not have bounty hunters? They were hiring mercs on Manaan for more than Hakret Station.

The Bounty Hunter class has been announced as Empire only, more news at 11.
