This is the author's comment. This humor story is not meant for the casual SW fan, but is aimed at the die-hard EU reader who is familiar with such obscure sources as Marvel comics, newspaper strips, young reader novels, and the roleplaying game. Anyone who has read a lot of that stuff should get the jokes. Please do not be put off by the hasty comment of someone who did not find this to be his or her taste.

That was an awesome story!! I loved it. I'm just off to see if you've written any more stories. I haven't read the comics but have seen enough info around to appreciate plenty of the jokes. I was cracking up. Anyway it was a really cool story.

Great story! I wish these comments were at the beginning of the story. If they were, I would reccommend that you check the references at the end of the story. If you don't recognize at least half of the names, this story isn't for you. If you are familiar with obscure characters in the EU and you are a true SW UNIVERSE fan, this story will make sense. As a classic SW comic book/strip fan it makes one think...I kinda like the way the SW brand was "Marvelized" in the 70's. Stan Lee would be proud.

That was sooooooooo funny! I loved the joke from the Star Wars Holiday Special where Leia sings and Jax tries to stop her! Heck, to this day Carrie Fisher still denies singing that song!

I liked it, especially the part in the lounge where you had that old SNL bit in there.

This is just hilarious stuff! I haven't read the Marvel comics at all, but I was laughing my butt off since the very beginning. Seriously, I thought you went insane when I read: "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, a ... rabbit walked into a bar..." (paraphrasing - don't remember the exact wording).
Wonderfully written! Clever and witty!

'Twas very funny.
But... it just kinda annoyed me that you made Ken such a... well, brat... and this is just my personal opionion, but I like to think he had a crush on Luke in his childhood.
But this fic was great, funny, cute, and you really should write a sequel.

Ken's not really THAT bigheaded... but I like the idea of him as an adult and still being as immature as Han Solo is in all the movies.

Sorry if I irked any real Ken fans. This story was just for comic exaggeration of all the characters. His portrayal in Glove of Darth Vader was ripe for that. But I do respect other points of view. In a serious story, I'd treat him differently. Peace.

Arigato! It's so rare to find someone who respects my opinion as a Ken-chan fangirl!
OOOOOOOOOO! Sapadu-senpai posted here too? She's written a ton of fanfiction on www.mediaminer.org and www.fanfiction.net. You should check her out! She's good, and a lot like you!
P.S. I know this should be saved for e-mail, but my e-mail service couldn't connect to your address. Gomen!

Dani seemed a little slutty to me... and Luke was kinna out of character, too...
BUT YOU NAILED, ABSOLUTELY NAILED, HAN SOLO'S CHARACTER! I applaud you.

I really liked this story. It was really original and well written. It is possibly the best one I've ever read. I especially liked how you used the unappriciated characters as the heroes.

A very very funny fic.
Loved how you included Ken and Triclops, and the old Marvel standbys.
My only problem is that I wished you included Valance the Hunter, another Marvel chracter that I really liked.

This is a great story! Well-researched and in-depth- utterly brilliant. My favorite part has to be the company's reactions to Lumpy's story. Truly a great work and a wonderful triibute to that slightly different Galaxy Far, Far, Away we used to know...

Aside from some of the inconsistencies of the Star Wars timeline, this was a great read! I loved how this story blended everything together. I loved the humor, the wit, even the numerous references to famous quotes of the films. This was a 10 as far as I am conccerned!

Bravo...A lighthearted look at some of the sillier Star Wars productions is long overdue.

Wow, what a fun story!
The writing was good, not great, but certainly good enough for an enjoyable, light-hearted romp. The more Jaxxon, the better--I'm so glad you utilized him as a main character!
I think my favorite part was the overdone sound effects that followed Ken around, with a close second being the Bill Murray Star Wars song. Just beautiful!
And great job developing a solid enough plot to keep the story entertaining throughout the cameos and easter eggs!

Being a lifelong Star Wars fan, I alwyas knew the novels were out there. One of my fondest memories as a teenager was the event that was the release of Shadows of the Empire. I so wanted to read it, but I just couldn't afford it at the time, but I alwyas told myself, One day. Well, shoot across a couple of decades later and I finally decided that it was time to delve into the world of the EU. I started with the Darth Bane trilogy, which was the oldest story chronologically at the time. (I decided I wanted to read the novels in order. ) And, I haven't stopped since; that was a couple of years ago. Right now, I'm slowly approaching A New Hope, and before I know it, I'll get to Shadows of the Empire and finally get to see what the hub-bub was about it.
