Just one panel from the comic adaptation of Splinter of the Mind's Eye.

He's supposed to be wearing a stolen miner's uniform. Uh-huh.

Um. If miners' uniforms in the Star Wars universe looked like that, my Exile would have spent a hell of a lot less of the prologue naked.

Really, as long as it's not blue and vomit-green, I can allow some flexibility with the clinging. XD

I vote sooner! I've never read any of the old Jossed stuff from before Return of the Jedi came out, I'd love to see it.

Wait...the boy who grew up on a DESERT PLANET can swim? What?

It makes sense when you consider Luke's istory. He's the hick moisture farmer from Tattooine. All he's ever had to look at desert, sand and more desert, with an option of rocks if he's lucky.

Once he was on a world with water in abundance I can imagine him being obsessed with water as a feature of the natural enviroment, seas and rivers, oceans and waterfalls, and to Luke learning to swim (because you might need to KNOW how to swim) would seem like the coolest thing EVER.

Since that story was set after ESB, I suspect that her experiences in this one convinced her that she should learn ... and since anything she does, she does well ...

You can always tell Chris Sprouse's art by that weird lack of a third dimension his dudes sometimes have.

Oh my... I always had a crush on young Luke (I was young, it was the 70's, feathered hair was "in"..), but young Luke in VERY tight fighting costume, and clearly after spending more than a few hours at the Rebel base gym... Woof!!

I remember quite liking the book, and the memorably horrible sequence when the Yuzzem have dealt with soldiers inside a tank for Luke and Leia and Luke suggest that Leia might want to avert her eyes whilst they clear out the cockpit. Leia is slightly offended that Luke thinks she's so delicate as to not stand the sight of a dead body... until she realises that the Yuzzem aren't dragging bodies out, they're removing double handfuls of sticky, reddish... stuff. which makes a "splat" sound when it hits the ground. She then finds a nearby patch of wall to be completely fascinating for a while.

ICK!

I don't think I could deal with all the sex tension again now that we know they're actually sibs.

Damn You, George!!

Your icon reminds me, doesn't Luke look remarkably like Doug up there?

Why yes.. yes he does. :)

My weakness is usually for blonds (Bat Family members are a very special exception of course)

I don't know this comic - it's an adaptation of Alan Dean Fosters book? When was it published? And is the art Al Williamson? (Looks a bit Craig Russell, too.)

Thanks, I'll have to find that. And it never occurred to me that Chris Sprouse's work looks so much like Al Williamson before, but now it seems obvious. (I think Terry Austin even worked with Williamson at one point, or am I dreaming that?) Great combination of two of my favourite artists, thanks for posting.
(Now wondering if there is a Al Williamson master post on Scans.... If not, I know what my next request will be.)


ps did you see the original cover to the book? It was excellent, one of my favourite Star Wars-related pieces of art.

I think it's an observation that a miner's outfit, which are normally envisaged as being thick, practical protective clothing appears to be as thin (and contour clinging) as spandex, and that Luke now, basically has the body of an Olympic gymnast, with the best defined torso definition I've seen outside of the Batclan.

From: [personal profile] ancarett
I adored that book uncritically when it came out and, several years later, ironically, for how wrong it all seemed.

I never knew there was a comic adaptation! If someone can share a few more panels, it would be awesome.

I recall liking the Luke/Leia relationship a lot more than the mess that Lucas made of it by making them siblings.

I think on the original PB cover, their uniforms were also pretty damn tight.
