I really, really enjoy the way Rick is using first-person in this
story, especially in this particular issue.  It's a distinct if
archetypical voice-- a candid one that's very entertaining and amusing
in its own right.  I like the vibe of the series and I'm begging you,
Rick, *please*, don't let this be the last issue. :-)

Sorry for the shortness of the comments tonight, folks-- but I can't
write ten pages about every story, can I?

And, oooh, before I go, here's a fun-fact!

The word "Jedi" is derived from jidai-geki-- or, loosely, samurai film.
 (To be more accurate, it means "period picture", but when you're
dealing with Japanese films, "period picture" pretty much means the
same thing as "samurai".)
