Our work on Volume 2 is progressing at a staggering pace! Joe continues to rewrite many of the old pages, adding some far better humor and removing some of the more juvenile bits that make us cringe looking back. For someone who’s been berating the Star Wars Special Editions for, what, 17 years now (GEEZ, even the re-release of these movies are old!) it may be a bit hypocritical to be going back and changing things up ourselves! ┬áBut unlike an alteration of a beloved movie moment in an attempt to sell more toys, we’re really trying to match the tone of the earlier part of the comic to its current state, which, I think we’d all agree, is the superior tone… state… thing. The next update we’ll show some comparison pages, old vs new, and the work in progress for the Volume 2 cover illustration! Forward momentum, I say!

    And by “effects” I mean “swords”. LOTS of swords.

    • John Smith

      To protect guns. LOTS of guns. :)

      • suburban_samurai

        To arm soldiers. LOTS of soldiers.

        • Mike

          Like those 5 suspiciously similar looking soldiers in panel 4.

        • noisyparker

          To fight battles. LOTS of battles.

    • leavescat

      Alternatively, he could vanish. Is he dick enough to do that?

      • suburban_samurai


  • Stephen

    I actually think the correct word you are looking for is “fare”. Thanks for the comic guys~

    • suburban_samurai

      OH NO YOU’RE RIGHT!!! Well, fixed now!

  • KungFuKlobber

    Genchu needs his teddy bear.

    • suburban_samurai

      He loves his Kuma-kun.

      • KungFuKlobber

        He takes it to Comic-Con.

        • reynard61

          Where he eats his Carmel Corn.

          • noisyparker

            And watches Kare Kano.

          • Hfar

            Right after he reads Case Closed.

          • reynard61

            Or plays a few yaku of Koi-Koi…

            (Why yes, I did just see “Summer Wars”. Why do you ask?)

  • Lady Courage

    Genchu is smooooooth. His face in panel 2 is priceless. His face in panel 3 about as innocent as it could possibly be. Not buyin’ it. No matter how cute it is.

    • suburban_samurai

      He’s a disarmingly nice guy when he’s not slaughtering hordes of enemies.

      • Lady Courage

        It’s always the hordes of enemies that bring out a man’s true character.

  • Hfar

    Ooo~ Next update we get a sneak peak at the updated pages for the old chapters? Nice!

    • suburban_samurai

      We’re eager to show them! It’s going to make reading through the archive far less painful (for me, at least).

    • KungFuKlobber

      Did Bunzo manage to train Mount Fuji as a ninja, or did you mean “sneak peek”? :)

  • Sunwu

    Genchu, just set the ship filled with guns on fire, evacuate the crew, and walk away from the explosion. it’ll be like you were never there.

  • Neska

    Poor Genchu . . .
    Frustrating Foreigner is Frustrating.
