The first episode of my Lego Star Wars comic is finally here. Starring Commander Wraith and his squad mates in the 25th Elite Legion, there is more to come. It is narrated and told from the point of Commander Wraith.
Wraith: "The first place where we shipped out after boot camp was the planet of Xenos. After landing at the forward base with the rest of our division, we met the commanders of the FIRE (First Inner Rim Enforcers). From left to right: my deputy, Lt. Redeye, a FIRE soldier, me in the green cape, Field Marshal Gavin, Commander Kai, and the green man in front, Marshal Mullins."
About this creation
Marshal Gavin: "Gentlemen, we are about to embark upon an offensive against the enemy. The CIS has been inciting the Brood Syndicate to overthrow the local government on this planet. It is our job to prevent that from happening."
Kai: "Agreed, sir. But how the heck are we supposed to fight them?"
Marshal Mullins: "We should advance on a broad front and blast them out with air support and heavy firepower." The conversation moves on as the commanders walk through their forward base.
Marshal Gavin: "This, men, is a photo of the main enemy installment recently snapped by a reconaissance starship. The Storm Corps "Dragon" Division, led by Commander Wraith, will be charged with the task of assaulting the depot. The SC will be assisted by the FIRE "Wyvern" Division, led by Commander Kai."
Kai: "Is this all we have, Marshal? We should wait for reinforcements before attacking."
Wraith: "Unfortunately, my friend, the CIS has placed heavy antiaircraft cannons in the way of our transports bringing us valuable supplies and reinforcements. The next Republic Gunship full of stuff won't arrive for maybe a week or so."
Marshal Mullins: "Not all is lost, men. Here are a few recent additions to our forces..."
Mullins: "Clearly, these soldiers will help us win the battle on this planet. You see, they're all from the Dragon and Wyvern Divisions."
The commanders review their troops for a moment.
Wraith: "Not all of them are clones, I guess. But who are the non-Clone guys anyway?"
Kai: "My most trusted men. You see, not all of the FIRE men are Clones, but are also birth-born recruits well-trained in the arts of warfare. See, don't they look so much better than your Clones?"
Wraith: "Haha. Very funny. I'll bet you two beers and a Death Stick that my troops can take yours on any time, any day."
Kai: "You've got yourself a deal!"
The commanders gaze upon their troops one last time.
Gavin: "Come on, gentlemen. The CIS could attack any moment. We should really get more engineers to build up our base and whatnot and..."
Redeye: "We're gonna need more ammo."
To be continued...
Special thanks to my friend, Samuel Zhang, for lending me some of his Lego army to use for a while. View his creations soon, and since we're best buddies, he let me use Commander Kai. Catch the next installation of the Journal of the 25th soon!
