There are two distinct stories in this arc. The first has Leia, accompanied by smuggler Sana Starros, dropping vader's sidekick, the recently captured Dr Aphra, off at Sunspot Prison, the Rebellion's most secret pentientiary, where she can be kept until trial. And then there's a rather unusual prison break.... kinda

The second has Luke and Han going on what SHOULD have been a simple supplies run, but Han gambles and loses the money they were going to use to buy everything, leaving them flat broke in a dodgy neighbourhood.


An interesting ethical dilemma )

And we discover that a certain insult in 'Empire' might have a grain of truth to it )

Star Wars: Princess Leia by Mark Waid and the Dodsons is pretty good. It has the same sort of tone and fits in with the world of the books while Leia remains Leia.

When Princess Leia Organa was captured by the Empire, she never betrayed her convictions - even after the complete destruction of her home world, Alderaan. When her rescue came, Leia grabbed a blaster and joined the fight, escaping back to the Rebel Alliance and helping strike the biggest blow against the Empire - the destruction of the Death Star! But in the aftermath of that victory, the question remains... what is a princess without a world? As Leia comes to grips with her loss, a new mission leads her to the underground world of Sullust.

The series starts straight after the medal ceremony at the end of A New Hope

26 out of 82 (yes I actually counted up the two page spreads this time cause, suprising to myself this is the post where I used up the most pages).

I'm going to throw up 5 more pages of Vol 2, and 19 pages of vol 3 (out of 85+). Since the Jedi were inspired by the Samurai movies of Akira Kurosawa (especially The Hidden Fortress) it's only fitting that in the manga adaptation some Samurai tropes and Kenjutsu stances are used.

In this installment:

-Obi-Wan is bad-ass
-Naughty tentacles
-Female Advice

7 pages from Star Wars #3 and 4 pages from Star Wars #4

That means there are some big explosions, some political discussions of the post-Death-Star-kablooey! situation (They don't call it that, but you know they would if they could) and also rather a lot of Luke in a vest doing Jedi training. (Look, no one else has posted from this issue, so I get dibs on what pages get posted!)

Big explosions and blond farmboy angst! )

Since Neko was kind enough to share with us what Star Wars might have been, and since not too long ago we saw the early Marvel adaptation, let's see how it gets handled in another country.


*note this is more or less just pages I liked... most of us know the story, I might post from the later volumes, but If I do it'll probably just be to see stuff like Alderaan's destruction*

Also I don't have an accurate page count on this book since Comixology counts two page spreads as a single page, and I will admit I'm too lazy to count those all up... It's over 80 though, so I got lots of room.

I found this in a bookstore the last time I visited Paris, and thought I'd share it with you.

I'm not patient or good enough to change the text in situ, so I'll put in as much of the text as seems appropriate after the fact, and apologise to any French speakers as I mangle their lovely language (And that's why Cypher is my favourite superhero!)

Be warned this is not only not dial-up friendly, it's actively dial-up hostile!!

STAR WARS TALES was an anthology DARK HORSE series, where many of the stories were either humorous or of "questionable continuity." Issue 16 had Leia Organa-Solo decide "With Great Power comes the Great Responsibility of not using that power." By John McCrea and Jason Hall.

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! )
