How I Spend Money [Comic]

how I spend money

Priorities right? Personally, this version is pretty accurate, though “books” is interchangeable with “gadgets” and “booze”.

Check out more comics on Sarah’s Scribbles.

It’s been seventeen years since The Phantom Menace raised our hopes and dashed them with clinical precision, and the rancid taste of Jar Jar Binks is still one that seems uncomfortably at the back of many a Star Wars fan’s throat. Even the new sequel trilogy has been marred by rumors that Kylo Ren would be revealed as the Gungan goofball. Fortunately that turned out not to be the case, and the fandom is finally moving away from Jar Jar and what he represented for the movies.

That being said, there’s still some bad blood, and some fans have chosen to excise those demons. Fans like artist Stephen Byrne, who has made this wonderful fan comic dubbed “Episode 7.5”. Following on from the events of The Force Awakens our new heroes, accompanied by Luke Skywalker and everybody’s favorite round-thing-on-top-of-other-round-thing BB-8, take down Jar Jar Binks in this fantastic 14-page comic.

Byrne posted the comic on Twitter across four tweets, and you can check it out in full below.

twa high school

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has inspired a lot of really great art and it doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. This new webcomic by Tumblr artist dc9spot imagines TFA as a high school story and, y’know, it works.

The only thing that’s missing is little hearts over Poe’s head.

Check out the full comic below.

berkeley breathed star wars edit

Berkeley Breathed has worked Star Wars into Bloom County in the past, so it’s no surprise to see him parody Star Wars: The Force Awakens as we countdown to the premiere.

First, there’s this new poster for Dork Wars: Adulthood Takes A Nap (the full version is available below and it’s hilarious).

But even more fun and interesting is the cover Breathed did for the Marvel Star Wars comic. He writes:

Greetings, arrested adolescent JediBloomers. As long as we’re being happily sucked into this week’s pop culture black hole… here ya go: Recently, the publisher of the Star Wars comic books requested a special “funny” promotional cover in honor of the coming movie. I cooly explained that LucasFilm would never, ever find anything I concocted funny. The comics guys found this idea absurd, nay, impossible — a sweet gentle thought. Below is the instantly-rejected cover art, lovingly referred to in legend as the “Pooper Scooper Trooper” edition… the fastest rejection in licensed comic book history. Ironic frosting: A producer for 1991’s Opus CBS TV Christmas special “A Wish For Wings That Work” was a smart, charming young executive named Kathleen Kennedy. She now runs Lucasfilm Ltd. Opus forgives you, old friend. Just bring us a good story, please. –bb
