Text: WARNING: THE FOLLOWING COMIC CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR
{The Darths & Droids logo follows}
Text: READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!

{A large buffer of black space follows}

Rob: What is this again?
Satchel: Well, I found the head of the Darth Vader doll that Bucky ripped off, but I could only find one doll body in the dumpster.
{Rob is handed a doll that is comprised of the helmet of Darth Vader, and a bikini-clad female body}
Rob: Dude, you just made Darths & Droids fan merch.
Satchel: I call her Malibu Vader!

The author writes:

Darths & Droids was the comic that introduced me to Mezzacotta as a site, which lead to my contributing to Square Root of Minus Garfield, and later iToons, so I've wanted for some time to pay it some tribute. And now I have!

If you disregarded the spoiler warning to read this strip, and haven't yet read Darths & Droids, I recommend you do so from the start; it's well worth your time. But if you just want to know what the heck I'm referencing here, here's a spoileriffic link for your illumination.
