I’m not sure if my desire to put a huge shaft to swing across in all my sci-fi comics comes more from Star Wars, or the videogame Pitfall. But I do love it. 🙂

    I actually have Pitfall on original, Atari 2600 hardware. I even bought a new-in-box Hyperkin Ranger to play it. It’s a combination gamepad/paddle controller for the 2600 and 7800.

    I think it also works for Sonic the Hedgehog on Genesis, though there’s naturally no pause button.

    I always thought Luke and Leia were really lucky, managing to swing across that shaft on the Death Star. I mean, a tiny cable like that can’t be easy to hang on to.

    And I was always confused as to how they managed the swing off of Jabba’s sail barge.

    I suppose it was inevitable that one day the rope over the chasm would break in mid-swing. It wouldn’t happen to the Mandalorian but it happens here to Tesfay.

    I suppose the only way to top THIS joke is to have an X-wing fighter come zooming up the chasm and take the characters with them. But I’m pretty sure it’s already been done by Robot Chicken or the like. Sigh.

        It’s EXCELLENT. Books as well. Looks like its beginning to deviate from the books a bit. Next season will be the last. And there’s 1 more book, then ~that will be done too.

        I think you would be fascinated by the Protomolecule… and what is built because of it.
