I was a weird kid (this is harldy news I know, but even so), when I watched Star Wars back in 1978 a part of me asked very mundane questions - What WAS a moisture farmer? Were they respected? On a desert world, I guess they would have had to have been, to some extent or another. Presumably, without them, the population would die of thirst... and if so, what happened to Lars and Beru Owen's farm after their unfortunate encounter with the Empire and Luke heading offworld?

It would seem I wasn't the only one, to at least some extent.

This is from the Star Wars 10th Anniversary 3-D Special (reprinted in the Star Wars - Wild Space Omnibus, which reprints a lot of odd stuff like the UK only Star Wars stories (There are two by Alan Moore I'd have loved to post, but 1/3 of 5 pages just plain wouldn't work) and which I would thoroughly recommend getting hold of a copy of.



Not in 3-D though... )

As some of you may have noticed (though it's been a very subtle campaign) there's a new movie out this week, that some expect to do quite well at the local kinematoraphic outlets around the world.

A whole new generation is about to be introduced to a big screen movie with noble heroes and heroines, despicalby evil villains and villainesses, hokey old magical religions, adorable robots, gorgeous looking spaceships and freaking LASER SWORDS!!!!

In light of this, it seems like a good time to remind ourselves, and a chance to show others, what we love about the Star Wars Universe, so let's announce;




The old EU has been wiped clean by Disney, but let us revel in it a little while longer, or delve into the new universe that Disney has established.

Stories focussing on our well established characters are, of course, welcomed, but given that the s_d community is filled with glorious oddballs (and I say that as an oddball myself, though my gloriousness is more open to debate) stores focussing on new characters, perhaps the lesser lights or the seemignly throwaway characters would be brilliant.

And if anyone can find an AU story of the sort I've always wanted to read, where Luke went to Alderaan and Leia went to Tattooine that would be amazing, because who knows what might have resulted!

Oh yeah... maybe that! )

So, in that time long ago, in that galaxy far, far away, let's see what stories it has to tell!

And as the weekend fades into just another Monday, a little something to cheer us up and remind us that there is joy and humour to be had in everything

Even the Dark Side of the Force... )

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.

May the 4th



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.

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.
Presenting... STAR WARS #2 (1977) )

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 )
