Kevin Rubio, creator of the hilarious short film TROOPS, lends his bit of craziness to this month's Tales. Lovern Kindzierski and fan-favorite Doug Wheatley (Aliens: Apocalypse) team up to spin a yarn. And Kilian Plunkett's comical "Sandblasted " follows up on the acclaimed adventures of Jabba the Hutt's nefarious swoop thugs, Big Gizz and Spiker, who encounter a dark trooper in the ruins of Tatooine's Podracing arena. The trooper is malfunctioning, but its weapons systems are still fully functional! Mayhem ensues.
