Covers for comic books I’ll never get round to producing, part thirteen

Julie’s birthday comes round again, and with no new MMOs in sight there wasn’t going to be a cover this time round…

Not 100% true, I had an idea back before Christmas that The Old Republic might provide the opportunity to reference her oft mentioned Chewbacca-likeness but seeing as the game looked rubbish and the Beta I was part of was so bug riddled the game mostly wouldn’t even load that fell by the wayside. Additionally, from what I gather, there aren’t alien species available to players, unlike in Star Wars Galaxys.
Unfortunately SWG was shut down some months before, so that was out too.

It came as a pleasant surprise then last weekend to find various groups working to get private servers with an older iteration of SWG up and running, so rolling an appropriately reminiscent avatar I wandered around a deserted Mos Eisley looking for an appropriate location to take a screenshot and happened on a Biker Scout.

Afterwards, wandering randomly in the desert (not having played the game I have no idea if the vehicles are usable, so I was making a long hike around the landscape) I happened across a Blackhole Trooper halfway up a sand dune. The resulting screenshots were mostly unusable as a sandstorm had blown in and I’m fairly sure night was setting, if indeed it does in-game, so I logged out at the same spot, hoping to capture something more appropriate later. When I did log back in the Stealthtrooper was gone, so I can only assume with the server being in its Alpha sandbox state that someone else had randomly spawned the NPC object and I just happened to come across it before it was wiped by a server restart. In tribute to such odds, I’ve included him in the top corner, appropriately photobombing someone else’s picture as such TXs are prone to do…
