The Imperials are advancing quickly upon Luke Skywalker and his friends
About this creation
After a small rebel outpost is lost to the Imperials, Luke Skywalker retreats to one of the rebels' main bases. Unfortuantely, the Imperials know the location of the base, and are planning an assualt on it. However, the base has a shield that would deflect and long range blasts. So Elite Commander Martin and Boba Fett are to infiltrate the base and destroy the shield...
Luke discusses the situation with his commander
Luke "What is the progress of the Imperial armor?"
Commander "They seemed to have halted, bu they may pose a threat. I recommend that the princess leaves immediately"
Luke "Rogue leader, I want you to take your best fighter wing along with the falcon"
Rogue leader "Very well, commander"
(rogue leader leaves with one of his fellow pilots. Leia comes up to Luke)
Leia "Goodbye Luke, I hope I get to see you again"
Luke "Don't worry about me, I can look out for myself"
(Leia and company leaves)
Luke "No R2 you're staying with me"
(Luke watches the Millennium Falcon leave with it's fighter escorts)
Luke "I want you guys to take down those TIEs"
rebel pilot "very well Luke"
(Elite Commander Martin has mounted his blaster cannon on an AT-AT)
Kayno "Take out that spotter. It gives the rebels a superior vantage point"
Martin "As you wish, my lord"
(Martin carefully takes aim and fires his cannon)
The rebel spotter is eliminated
Martin "Right on target sir"
Luke "Status report commander"
Commander "it seems we have lost out spotter"
Luke "The Imperials are becoming more and more of a threat"
Martin "This bounty hunter and I will take care of the shield generator. When you get the transmission, I want you to order your men to charge. You're in commander now Neo"
(Martin and Boba Fett walk to their speeders)
(The speeders take off)
(While all the attention was directed to the TIEs, the speeders were able to easily escape notice)
The speeders land outside the rebel base
Martin "Come on bounty hunter"
They peek around the corner and see Luke walking into another corridor
Martin "Now Boba"
The two dash across the front of the small hanger, unnoticed
Boba looks around the corner and sees a guard
Boba charges in a blasts the guard
The pair runs to the generator room
Suddenly a ray shield activates
Martin "I've got this bounty hunter, stay guard"
(Martin fires his blaster, and the bolt goes through the shield)
The blast is about to hit the control panel...
The panel is destroyed
The shield deactivates
Martin "I told you I got this"
Commander Martin takes out a thermal detonator
He plants it on the generator
Martin "This'll do the trick"
The pair is running through a corridor
Martin "Fett, wait. I think I hear someone ahead"
Boba rushes in and shoots his blaster
A turret operator notices them and yells out
turret operator "Intruders!!!"
Boba quickly fires his blaster to get rid of him
Suddenly rebel troopers start rushing in the corridor
Boba "Now Martin!"
Martin takes out the detonator and presses the button....
(The shield generator blows up and kills all the troopers around it)
Back by the walkers, Commander Neo recieves the transmission from Martin
Martin "I have destroyed the generator, your men are now clear to assualt the base"
Neo "Men! CHARGE!!!"
The Imperials are advancing upon the rebels at a rapid rate
Luke briefs his troops before the battle
Luke "This battle may be hopeless, but you can still staunch the Imperial advance. Keep them back by any means necessary. I want you to-wait I hear something!"
(Luke runs out of the corridor)
Luke "Well well well. I see you two have managed to destroy most of my base. No matter, you won't escape alive"
Martin (whispering) "Boba now"
Boba fires at Luke, but the Jedi is too quick for him
Luke "I was expecting that"
Luke deflects the blast at a gas canister
The gas tank erupts in flames, knocking out Boba
Martin, reacting quickly, hoists Boba up on his back and sprints to his speeder
Luke "You can't escape!"
(Suddenly Martin turns around and aims his mine launcher at Luke)
Martin "Catch this!"
Martin fires his mine launcher, giving him time to get to his speeder and escape
Luke can only watch Martin get away
Luke (thinking) "I'd better get out of here"
Meanwhile that battle isn't going well with the rebels. The Imperials have smashed through their front defenses and are continuing to advance.
In a last ditch effort a rebel fires the last of its turret ammo at an AT-PT
The walker is destroyed
Unfortunately the AT-AT spots the turret and fires it's guns at it
rebel turret operator "Oh no!"
The turret is completely annhilated
In the hanger, Luke prepares his Jedi Starfighter for his departure
Luke "Come on R2 get in the fighter"
Suddenly Darth Kayno and Commander Neo run in the hanger
Luke "R2 NOW!!!"
Lukes fighter escapes
Kayno "Don't worry Neo I managed to put a tracking device on his ship"
Love your commander Neo. Great comic. P.S. I started up my Caching up with the storm again. I'm up to pt 13 now.
I like it

Excellent, but I, am also today very, "Heavy critic-ish" today. First off, I used to do the same thing too, make a base and then take pictures of the inside for comics. A word of advice, make some of the walls removable, or just make the sets by themselves. Second, I didn't know that we have carpet planets, seriously, try to make a background, even a simple sheet like what Jason Corlett does goes a long way to make things seem, "more professional". The Colors! My EYES!!!!! Oh my god! It looked like someone puked up a rainbow! dude, you have to try to make the colors match better, or do some color combinations that look good, some useful combinations are Grey- and any other color, Black- and any other color, White-Yellow, Green-Yellow. Your dialogue could be helped too, whenever you use a different character to speak, start a new paragraph, and use quote marks, " ", ( ), - _ , and check your spelling and punctuation , !, ., ?, . Follow these tips, and your comics will improve 3000% (results may vary).
P.S. The tips were made to help you, so please don't take these in a bad way, thanks, be back for more soon! ( 5/5)
Very nice comic here- nice to see imperial era-stuff for a while- but i am so critic today (sorry) that i have to give only 4 - i spotted two probs with a plot-
first one is that There seems to be Character named 'Darth Kayno'- is this taking place still when the Emperor lives? (rebels being rebels not a New Republic hints that way)- so if he is a dark jedi or assassin working for the empire- he shouldn't use the Darth-prefix- "Only two of them there are" so only two Darths but their apprentices and hands and assassins whatever are not allowed to use Darth- before they became a true sith (Like Starkiller or Ventress- no Darth's there)
So if he is working with the empire he cannot be selfproclaimed Dark lord- is there a back story for him?
and another prob: Why Luke has delta7?- where he have get that in movies he do have X-wing and delta-7 is so old model-
Here is a possible explanation for that though:
in a game Rebel Strike -Wedge finds one delta-7 from Geonosis and takes it back to Home one- so maybe he borrowed it to Luke- he is "the jedi" after all XD... so only one prob- well good anyway
Great comic! Lots of action, along with some interfamilial kissing... Also, It's nice to see the imperials winning a battle for once, although I'm guessing this is why it's called the Empire Strikes Back =)
