Modern Antarctic Press: Steam Wars: Princess Legends #1 and 2

In season two of Genndy Tartakovsky's Star Wars: Clone Wars animated series, Padme Amidala and Yoda undertake a mission to rescue Jedi Master Luminara Unduli and her Padawan Barris Offee on the planet Ilum.  Ilum is an ice planet with caves that contain crystals the Jedi use to make their lightsabers.  Amidala wears cold weather gear to operate in the frigid environment.

The cover for Antartic Press' Steam Wars: Princess Legends #1 shows a character who is wearing cold gear similar to the outfit worn by Amidala.  The outfit for the character on this cover is more ornate however, and this character wears a head piece and goggles that Amidala's outfit did not have.

The cover for Steam Wars: Princess Legends #2 shows a female character in shackles, flanked by several heavily armored guards.  Unlike many of the covers used for the Steam Wars comics, this cover has no direct Star Wars reference.
