Jodo Kast by SteveArgyle Jodo Kast by SteveArgyle
Ok, I know he looks like Boba Fett. He's trying to look like Fett. He desperately wants, more than anything to be Fett. Ever since he was a little boy, he dreamed of it, and practiced his menacing nod in the mirror every day. His first helmet was shoddily crafted from a bucket with tin snips and a rusty hacksaw. His first bounty hunt was for "Timmy, the kid with asthma." He snuggled with a plush Darth Vader, and contracted hits on Kermit, and Mr. Bear.

But he is not Boba Fett. He's Jodo Kast. And it's no longer cute now that he's a full grown poseur extraordinaire.

His blasters don't even fire laser bolts. They fire shame and self-loathing. His jetpack is fueled with the tears of a life wasted.

However, he does win Star Wars Trivia bar night, and the bar gift certificates are almost enough to drink the regret away.

For Star Wars Galaxies. Copyright Lucas Arts and Sony Online Entertainment. Art directed by Roger Chamberlain and Derek Herring.

Photography by Cloud City Studios. (Because they're the ones who did Boba Fett's headshots.)

Thank you, sir, for your brilliant artworks and even more brilliant (and sometimes awesome-ly scathing) humor. Every caption I've read so far has made me snort my eggs and rice. Can't wait to see more. But maybe I'll look at them when I'm not eating. XD

You're pretty much a big winner.
I'd give you loads of free cash for being a winner if I had any!
But I don't...so....here's a consolation prize.

Does he want to be Fett so bad that he plans to die in the stomach of the sarlacc?

His armor isn't dirty and blood-stained enough to be Boba Fett's. It's also not green enough. Jodo has a long way to go. *nods sagely*

"Don't say things like 'woosh' when you throw ninja stars, you don't hear people say 'pew pew' when they fire laser guns, do you? That's redundant, the guns do that for you."
