Todays strip is of course dedicated to The Fighting 501st – Vader’s Legion. Much more than fictional characters in a movie and far greater than a mere fan club. These men and women dress up (in suffocatingly hot uniforms) to serve causes much grander than the Empire. From battling cancer to collecting toys, donating blood, making wishes come true and much much more the 501st bring help to where there is need and always take time to pose for pictures.

We here at Yak’s Pub raise our glasses to you in salute! Thank you for all the hard work and time each of you put in to help make this world a better place.

  1. Thanks for the tribute. 501st is a great group. We have garrisons around the world and have opportunities I could only have dreamed of as a SW fan. Here in Texas we keep a pretty full schedule doing 1 or 2 events a month. I encourage anyone interested to get involved.

  5. Um, the red light on Vaders chest box really shouldn’t be lit and his chin vent looks a bit small for an ESB Vader, but the cape chain is right on!…??…. haha.

    Thx for thinking of the 501st!
