The gangly Gungan, Jar Jar Binks, reveals himself as a member of the First Order and displays some proficiency in wielding a potent red lightsaber in this fun 14-page Star Wars fan comic.  Titled Star Wars: 7.5 and created by artist Stephen Byrne, this most impressive mini-comic adventure traces Rey, Finn, Poe and BB-8 as they attempt to track down an evil cloaked character who turns out to be none other than the bumbling, lop-eared Jar Jar, brandishing his lethal crossguard lightsaber.  Binks loses more than his Force-assisted cool after a certain Jedi Master steps in to help save the day.

Take a look at this admirable effort to deliver an entertaining comic-art diversion in the gallery below while we mope about having to wait another six months for Star Wars VIII to be released by Disney.
