Cover to Marvel's 1977 Star Wars #2
So, hey maybe I can put more effort into this and add a more balanced selection of scans than I did last time.
6 pages out of an 18 page story, under the cut.

Seeing the recent re-acquirement of the Star Wars comics license by Marvel, let us look back at their first go at making Star Wars a thing. (Also, this is my first post here, let me know if I did anything wrong!)

Warning: Contains more images than I've ever included in a single post before!

Question - What do Alex Ross, Alex Maleev, Sara Pichelli, Alan Davis, Pascal Campion, Pasqual Ferry, Joe Quinones, Simone Bianchi, Dave Dorman, Stan Sakai, Mike McKone, Dale Keown, Stephanie Hans, David Peterson, Mike Mayhew, Mike Deodato, Mark Brooks, John Tyler Christopher, Greg Land, John Cassady, Jenny Frison, Amanda Conner, Skottie Young and Bob McLeod have in common THIS WEEK?

Answer - They ALL have variant covers of Star Wars #1 coming out... and that's not even all of them!

The release of Star Wars #1 from Marvel Comics this week is perhaps the publishing coup of the year, and you certainly can't say that Marvel and Disney and Lucasfilm haven't gone all out with the covers!

This is the main release cover...



Which is fine, and classic, and apporpriate and all///

but that's not even scraping the surface )

I can't say I have an all from favourite writer be it in the comic medium or otherwise, but Larry Hama is certainly one of the ones who influenced me most from my childhood up till today, he's done so many great books, most famously GI Joe, though I believe his own favourite is Nth Man, and his Wolverine run is considered one of the best.


Larry Hama got his start in the comics industry as penciler, and he's done practically every other job the in the industry (he's also been an actor and is working on a crowd funded cyberpunk movie), but he moved to writing mostly because it had better pay per page, and he could produce more pages, per hour. He's very well known for his writing style; Hama always says he doesn't know what's going to happen on one page until he's finished the previous one... When people were speculating about that eye a while back, he went on record saying he wouldn't know what it was till he got there (I am not sure if he has got there yet, I'm a bit behind on my pull list).

Today for you we have: Star Wars, Bucky O'Hare, Wolverine, and a little, but not too much, GI Joe, as well as some excerpts from a very cool vampire E-Book that you should totally buy if you like vampires or urban fantasy at all. Read more... )

So what happens when you apply the What If trope to Star Wars? That's the question Star Wars Infinities line asked in three 4-issue miniseries covering the first movie. Out of the three I find the A New Hope entry to be the most interesting, Empire to be the least, and Return of the Jedi to have the funniest catalyst (during negotiations with Leia-Bosch, Jabba accidentally breaks C3P0).


So let's take a look and see what havoc a little mechanical failure can cause our interipid heroes during the Battle of Yavin.

Denis Medri is an artist on DeviantArt who gained praise for his innovative reworkings of pop culture classics

These are the first work of his I found;

Rockabilly Batman )

But just today, I found these and they are AWESOME. In light of Disney buying LucasFilm, we may not want to let them know these exist, but just imagine...

What if Star Wars was a 80's High School flick? )

Last year I posted some images from Jeffrey Brown's instant classic Darth Vader and Son

Though it was enjoyed, there was some comment that what it needed was some acknowledgement of Lei as his daughter...

Well, those fine folks over at Newsarama have an interview with the author as his latest work comes out

Now you know that I have my little... quirks, but I do like me some cute of a weekend, and this hits the spot...

I found a copy of this new book in my local comic shop, HAD to buy it (despite the fact it was the only one that they had in and I think the owner wanted to read it himself, and I wanted to share it because it is AWESOME!

It's called



(If you thought "Batman and Sons" was the a humorous take on the most stressed father/son dynamic out there, think again...)

Ok, my personal golden rule about Star Wars is "post stuff about Star Wars only if it's cool".

This is cool, courtesy of ComicsAlliance.com.

The Force is strong with this one.

Bad ass, this is. )

Alright besides, Doom there is one other villain who's my favorite. Well besides my avatar. But the older more machine than man. Plus just as twisted and evil.

Thirty years ago today, the much-anticipated sequel to one of the most famous space fantasy movies of all time hit theaters. And just over ten years ago, mostly to promote the Special Edition re-release of those movies and the then-upcoming first prequel, Dark Horse Comics and Lucas Books published a set of manga adaptions of the original trilogy.

In 2007, I posted selections from Episode IV, A New Hope, on the original scans_daily. One of these days, maybe soon, I'll go back and try to recreate those lost posts (a Special Edition of my own? :) ... but for now, enjoy these.



It is a dark time for the Rebellion. )

14 pages + cover from an 80+ page volume; not my scans, although I do own the originals.

Adam Warren drew the covers, but I don't know if that's enough for a tag.
