Our friend Keith sends word of a new Star Wars online fan comic:
"Fandom Comics (http://www.fandomcomics.com) just launched their latest Star Wars fan comic, titled "Cracken's Crew: First Missions". A spin-off of their flagship "Cracken's Crew" title, "First Missions" focuses on the initial deployments of each of the team members in an anthology of short 12 page vignettes. The first story focuses on the team medic, Ander, and his mission to Dankayo to extract General Rieekan. If you recognize that obscure West End Games RPG reference, kudos! Written by Keith "Nar" Kappel and illustrated by the incomparable Jonas Scharf. Enjoy the cover and first few pages today!
Fandom Comics is a fan fiction and RPG module site, currently running four fan comics (Cracken's Crew, Cracken's Crew: First Missions, Lumiya: Dark Lady of the Sith, and Tales of the Chu'unthor), as well as supplemental fan fiction and fan RPG material. Fandom Comics is also home of the Clone Wars Saga Edition Fan Sourcebook, a several hundred page long living document that catalogs much of the Clone Wars esoterica in Saga Edition stat block form." (Thanks Keith!)
