Our fifteenth strip continues the Jedi/Wizard storyline with lightsaber wands!
I had been stuck with the problem of how to introduce our Sith character and the lightsabers. Doug came up with a strip that would just introduce the lightsabers, leaving the Sith for the next strip. He wrote the first three panels and left the punchline up to me. I came up with three alternatives and he picked the third one. Here are the other two.
Alternate 4th Panel #1
MIKE: Alright Leia…you want to give it another try?
Alternate 4th Panel #2
MIKE: Your boyfriend will be very proud.
DOUG (with a defeated look): Shut up.
