It's a noble effort, attempting to redeem the Achilles' heel of the Star Wars franchise with simple illustrations. But the gang at the Comic Twart collective do their level best, even if they don't show the Gungan much love.

As Andy Kuhn says: "Originally I was going to do a jokey drawing of Jar Jar. Then I thought it's way harder to make Jar Jar look cool than stupid. It turns out the only way for me to make Jar Jar Binks look cool, is to draw him really small on the page!"

Chris Samnee was a little less kind: "Even just drawing him made me angry."

But what they came up with is pretty rad. Check the blog for more, which I'm sure will be coming just as soon as the rest of the Twartists get that icky taste out of their mouths.
