Quiet comics about gender, mental health, and getting older.
it's the way i have no connection to nor knowledge of any of the characters but i ended up nearly crying several times goddamn
If I had a penny for every time you wrote a comic about a shape shifter that had to be separated from their found family, I'd have two cents.
Considering you? I'm surprised it's only two cents.
That was so good, I'm not crying at all! (Totally crying. Plus, you just made a way better story out of Attack of the Clones, so uh... *praise*)
The implications of this are just, taking root in my brain now. I can totally see Jango doing that. I love how you portrayed his and Boba's relationship, and Zam, and their relationship with Zam.
Reading this really took me back, all the way back to when I used to still love Star Wars, when I found your comics about Zam and Jango. I've been hiding so much from social media I'm so thankful I was able to find your art again in a nice space away from all the noise. I'm glad you're doing alright ND, and that you're still creating <3
I have been running this tabletop rpg Star Wars game, the first few sessions were clone wars based, but they're now in the Imperial times. So... I love this comic, and I couldn't help myself but make it canon for that game.
Meaning I put in a person called ND Wessel in the game, who just so happened to also be a shapeshifting alien... When the party discovered they were a shapechanger, one player shouted out loud ''WAIT IS THAT ZAM??? SHE'S DEAD!'' and then that player had a discussion with himself about how they could have possibly survived... his reaction alone was worth it, just wait until he finds out about Jango & Boba (if they ever encounter them too).
I will always joke about how Star Wars fans are better writers than the people who actually wrote Star Wars, but ND this is truly something beautiful. Funny and fluffy and hopeful and gut wrenching, you are such a wonderful storyteller. I always love hearing your stories, and I can't wait to see what comes next.
If Disney isn't already looking into making an animated Star Wars show by ND Stevenson, then they don't deserve to own Star Wars! >:(
OH MY GOD. Zam has always been one of my FAVORITE SW characters and her friendship with bitty!Boba when he was growing up brought me so much joy in the EU. I've kind of fallen out of love with Star Wars lately, but this brought all those feelings roaring back. AND GOD, HOW DID YOU MANAGE TO CAPTURE SO MANY OF MY HEADCANONS AND FAVE SCENARIOS ;_; Zam reading Boba a bedtime story. Her crafting a new face that better reflects her identity and the parallel to the trans experience. Zam's coldbloodedness leading to shenanigans on an ice planet. This was so amazing and I'm so happy to have read it!
I AM LITERALLY UNSPEAKABLY HAPPY RN -- AN UNREASONABLY TRIUMPHANT RETURN TO ZAM WESSEL FIC AFTER SO LONG
AND IT'S, GENDER?????? AND SO FUCKING EXCELLENT??????? AND GODDAMN CANON COMPLIANT
UGH I LOVE THIS SO MUCH. SO SO SO MUCH
thank you for making this. Best star war I've seen all year :D
ooooh man,,,,, boba with the clone talking about twins made me ache. but i love this so much!!! i loved your characterization of zam especially, and her relationships with both boba and jango. they all got along so well together. thank you for sharing this!!!
I read several of these comics on twitter but I'm so glad to have them all in order like this! I don't even know Star Wars that much, and I don't know any of the characters, but I loved this <3
This was ... so amazingly good. I adore Zam in the old canon books where she's the closest thing to a mom that Boba gets. I love how you've taken that and run with it. I ADORE the way you drew little!Boba -- the bit where he sees Zam's Clawdite face and hides in his room and it's just his eyes?? I was giggling like mad! And I loved Fennec and Boba, and just all of it!
But I'm really sitting with this bittersweet ending. And the way that Zam is the one who needs to make sure Boba (OUR Boba) is okay. I had to read it a few times to get there, but it's so good. And all the little vignettes are excellent. Especially the bits with just her and Jango. I just wanted to say that I'm glad I found this (via Tumblr). Beautiful comic 🥰💚
I love this! I was just thinking about one of your old tumble posts about Zam
How lovely is reading your minicomics again. I'm happy now, and that is no easy task. Thank you!
seeing boba fett hit a bong really is wild especially with all the emotional stuff beforehand, such a good comic
