This joke was a lot more timely when I first came up with it around eighteen years ago. It took me this long to take pictures and make it into a comic. I even bought the 12-inch Darth Maul at the time, specifically for this strip, and it’s been sitting around ever since.

Joke Reference: Mini mall.

And, yes, in Star Wars Canon (new and old), Maul wasn’t part of the Empire by the time it came about. But the world of this comic pretty much has everything coexisting, so…

Oh, and the droid may look just like C-3PO, but (in this strip, at least) it’s an original character.
