Tag and Bink

Tag and Bink are the main characters in a series of comic books spoofing Star Wars. Tag is from the planet Corellia and Bink is from Alderaan. The two first meet when they are found to have Force potential. The comics illustrate how these two Jedi in training haphazardly cause all the pivotal events in the Star Wars universe. Like other Star Wars comics of the time, Tag and Bink was published by Dark Horse Comics, the holder of Star Wars-licence from early 1990s (taken over from Marvel Comics). The whole Tag and Bink series was collected in Tag & Bink Were Here.

Tag and Bink are the Rosencrantz and Guildenstern of the Star Wars universe, a pair of minor characters who deliberately or accidentally influence the events seen in the first and second film trilogies. Their meddling also explains some of the inconsistent and illogical events of the series. In fact, the title of their initial appearance — Tag and Bink Are Dead — is a direct reference to the Tom Stoppard play Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead.

Famous quotes containing the word tag:

    I believe in the flesh and the appetites,
    Seeing, hearing, feeling, are miracles, and each part and tag of me
    is a miracle.

    Divine am I inside and out, and I make holy whatever I touch or am touch’d from,
    The scent of these arm-pits aroma finer than prayer,
    This head more than churches, bibles, and all the creeds.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
