Star Mares 1.3.25: Mane Interlude (For Reals)



I may need to revise some of my snout pieces - Skywalker doesn't really look like a mare up top there...

Panel 2 may require some explanation: this comic presumes that 99% of the Imperial military are earth pony clones created from the Mirror Pool (from 'Too Many Pinkie Pies'), and thus when they get blown up, the magic that produced them simply returns to the pool (hence the red cloud).  This is my slightly cheaty way around the fact that Star Wars requires gratuitous space explosions while maintaining my 'everybody lives (from a certain point of view)' policy.  I am perfectly aware that by this time in the Star Wars canon, stormtroopers and pilots were mostly not clones anymore, so don't nerd-rage on me.

For the benefit of my (surprisingly sizable) number of readers who haven't actually seen the movies (spoilers follow): in this scene, Obi-wan Kenobi (having told Darth Vader that if struck down he will 'become more powerful than you can possibly imagine') deliberately lowers his guard to distract Vader long enough for the heroes to get away (he comes back as a ghost later, because Alec Guinness could easily be persuaded to participate in roles he hated by being offered lots of money).  An epic space battle cribbed shot-for-shot from WWII newsreels follows, and the heroes escape into hyperspace... sort of.

Didn't you say earlier that there were no tie fighters, and pegasi flew around in suits instead?
