Star Wars Gamer #4 (Wizards of the Coast)
"What They Called Me"

Story: Craig Thompson
Pencils: Craig Thompson
Colors: Craig Thompson
Letters: Craig Thompson
Cover: Mark Zug
Released: 06/19/2001

Reviewed by: JF Boivin (09/05/2005)

SUMMARY:

A wealthy tourist visits a tribe of Ewoks on the moon of Endor. But his attemps at modernizing their culture are rewarded when he decides to leave with a few unfortunate gifts. Then he visits the Wookiees of Kashyyyk and inadvertently insults their honor by eating a product of Wookiee child labour and cheating during an honor family ritual.


THE STORY
The first half of this story was first printed in Star Wars Tales #5 (click on the link to read the review), so here I will only review the added four pages. Instead of being tacked on at the end, this should have been given a new title as a new story, since "What They Called Me" is only relevant to the Endor part. It is beyond me to understand why they chose that story to be printed in a magazine mostly dedicated to gaming. At least they should have reprinted a good story. The new pages could have been published as a new story in Star Wars Tales as it is really the "further adventures" of this unnamed space-traveling lurdo.

For some reason, I enjoyed this one a bit more. I thought it was kind of funny that the guy doesn't understand a work of Wookiee dialect (known as shyriiwook) and manages to insult their honor. It's a good thing this is a funny cartoon because realistically, he would have had his arms torn off. There is a mention of ryyk blades and the syren plant, which shows the artist did some research.

THE ART
The art is still very cartoony, but the dude now sports a mullet in an effort to display his "Wookiee spirit." I don't know why he chose an R5 unit for a translator droid, but I guess it doesn't matter.


CONCLUSIONS

Since it's only two parts of four pages each, the time I wasted reading it is minimal.
