Moving along in the story, nearly back to the group and some action!

Seriously, I deserve an award for how many lengthy holologs I compressed into one page. Some things that work well for exposition and play in a game don't translate well for a comic.

Page 3…

Page 5…

I've probably said it befor but I'll say it again.  Your comic is great, the art the layout, it's wonderful.  Albeit a little dialog heavy, though you can't really be faulted for that as these kotor games are around 60% dialog.

I personally liked Paragus because the mystery and the horror element to it. It was almost like a toned down, SW version of BioShock, where you're coming into a place littered with dead bodies, mysteries, and crazy machines (later assassins) trying to kill you. 

I do like how Ally is working her way through this big plot as she goes. It goes to show you how intuitive and strong she really is, even as a rusty Force user. ;)

yeah, it must suck to have to include all the necessary exposition for the story to make sense without assuming the reader knows everything about KOTOR2... good work fitting in all that dialogue. At least this won't be as much of a problem once she starts meeting more people.

I don't mind all the dialogue when it's with people...but Peragus is nothing but log after log after log!:o (Eek)

Exactly! People have action and expressions... plenty of stuff going on for you to dazzle us with. Those audio logs though... the station can't get blown up soon enough!

True, what works well in a game may not work so well in a comic. Still, the hololog recordings you included do have relevance to the story, so that works out fairly well. ^^

Love it! The big panel in the middle is especially awesome - the perspective with her hand, her facial expression, everything!

new page... and so much exposition.
In the second panel, Lelle seems to be drifting between feeling sad for everyone and "Please, Gods, let these logs be over" ... like she wants to cry for more and more reasons but she won't let herself.

Somewhat amusingly, the last panel almost looks like she killed those last two miners, though given the wider context, we all know they were already long dead ;)

If memory serves, we are almost to Sleeps-With-Vibroblades :)

It does kind of have a "I just murdered these people!" look to it, but in context it should be obvious. Otherwise Lelle just went over the edge.
I really appreciate your thoughtful comments by the way!Hug

Sleeps with vibroblades is in our near future. Mwahahahahahahaha!
