This issue is jam packed; picking out 1/3rd was very hard, and the reason I didn't upload the whole thing last month. Sadly I couldn't include any of Han, and Luke fighting the Emperor's personal guard.

Our Heroes arrive at Coruscant, which his surrounded by a massive number of Imperial ships including several Executor-class Super Star Destroyers, as well as the Death Justice Star. The party splits up; first they drop Yoda off at the battle station, before Han, and Luke head for the planet below.

Five years have passed, the war is over, the Imperial Senate has been reinstated though restructured, and Han and Chewie watch in a bar as the the ceremony marking the Death Star, now rechristened the Justice Star's, relocation to Corouscant's Orbirt plays on a holoprojector.

Hope we're still in a Star Wars mood! A while back I posted part one of the What If style story, where mechanical failure prevented Luke from destroying the Death Star. The rebellion is mostly wiped out, and Princess Leia is in the hands of the Empire.

Luke, and Han narrowly escaped the Imperial forces, and now are having a little disagreement on how to proceed.

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 )

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.

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? )

Released by Marvel Comics in April 1983, just a month before Return of the Jedi's release. Written by Mary Jo Duffy, drawn by Kerry Gammill and Tom Palmer.

The Star Wars Marvel series began with the comic adaption of the original film, and continued as a regular monthly, relating adventures of the gang in between the films, finally grinding to a halt a couple years after Jedi's release. Sales were down, and everyone pretty much felt like the Star Wars phenomenon was over (ho ho ho). It's now become one of the relics of the SW Expanded Universe, with a lot of its continuity largely ignored or forgotten, with a few major exceptions. This isn't surprising, as some of the early issues, under the auspices of old Roy Thomas, not only had some ridiculous ideas (the deluded would-be Jedi Don-Wan Kihotay and the legendary rabbit warrior Jaxxon) but were badly hurt by later changes in continuity (Luke/Leia romance was hinted at, and Jabba the Hutt was depicted as a bipedal, rodent-looking thing). But particularly after Empire, the stories, largely under Duffy's writing, took a much less "wacky" tone, concentrating on characterization and tight plotting, with arcs spread over several issues that tied the comics to the films.

I know you're to blame for this, Solo! And someday, somewhere, I'm gonna get you for it! )
