It was fun generating the sloping text like that.

For anyone who doesn't know, these are the opening lines of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. George Lucas used the line, "I have a bad feeling about this," as the very first words as a deliberate reference to the same line, which is spoken multiple times by different characters throughout the rest of the Star Wars films.

2016-08-10 Rerun commentary: Yeesh. That sloping text looks awful. I'm sure I could do a much better job these days, with all I've learnt about Photoshop since.

While I have an official Qui-Gon LEGO minifigure, I never acquired a young Obi-Wan one. So I had to improvise him every time I did a comic that needed him, which is why he looks more generic.
