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.

I actually posted this last month as part of my Favourite Creator post on Larry Hama, but since that post was super long and there was a lot going on, and lastly cause we seem to be reflecting on Star Wars comic history, I thought I'd repost the story of the Third Law.

This was one of the stories from Marvel that got ascended to a slightly higher level of canon, with additional fleshing out by Wizards of the Coast, and I think it's a goody.

Leia breaks all the laws! )

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

As promised: gay Zeltrons redesign Leia's dress.

A lot of these are partial pages. It adds up to about five pages out of twenty-two.

I've been reading Marvel Star Wars. It's much better than I expected it to be, especially past the first few issues. It's just fun.

Also, Leia is a troll. Part of a page from Star Wars Annual 1: The Long Hunt/A Duel of Eagles. After that is five pages from another issue.
Like what you see? )
