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... )

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? )

Splinter of the Mind's Eye was written in 1978, after Star Wars/A New Hope and before The Empire Strikes Back. Rumor has it that when Allen Dean Foster wrote it, it was as a sequel to Star Wars, and would be filmed as such if the movie didn't do well. With a limited budget in mind, it was set entirely on one very foggy planet, and wouldn't include much in the way of space battles or anything at all involving Han Solo. Of course, in the days before Lucas decided that Luke and Leia were siblings, taking out that part of the love triangle leads to an amazing degree of UST which neither party acts much on - in fact, both of them are certain that they shouldn't act on it. Luke provides a reason - he's a farm boy, she's a princess - and Leia doesn't.

The comic came out in 1995. I scanned it from Star Wars Omnibus: Early Victories. This is 20 pages out of 96, chosen rather shamelessly more for shots of Luke in his absurd "miner's uniform" than anything else.

'There must be at least 200 of them...' 'So let's get down there and start getting acquainted!' )
I enjoyed both the book and the comic. There are brow-raising parts in both, and it's not worldshaking, but I don't regret reading either. If you liked this, try taking a look!

Last time, I put up a couple of stories from Star Wars Tales #15 which centered on Luke Skywalker as a child. Now it's Leia's turn.

First is The Princess Leia Diaries, from Star Wars Tales #11. Four pages out of twelve.

What kind of galaxy do we live in? And what can I do to change it? )

"First Impressions", an eight-pager from Star Wars Tales #15, isn't as good, IMO, but it does have a very memorable bit. Two pages.
You have your father's fire. )

...and okay, one not-really-related bonus which made me laugh. See, the "Tales" collections are always preceded by a page of the editors interacting with the characters somehow, and this is the one from #15.

Oh, really...? )

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! )

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.
