Hi folks!

This one might have been on the LJ SD community, but I don't think it's been posted since the moves. In 2009, Dark Horse Comics did a number of one-shots with, purportedly, a complete story in each issue; counterprogramming it against whatever big crossovers Marvel and DC were doing at the time. This is one of them. (My copy was a giveaway by a local shop, thus the label.)

Seven pages of twenty-two.

One of the kidnappers had drawn his blaster and was lining it up on a badly dressed and clearly insane figure that had appeared from nowhere and was running straight at him. -Mara Jade, observing Luke, whose idea of a disguise was gray trousers, a blue tunic, a yellow sash, and a poncho with a hood.

Luke Skywalker shouldn't be allowed to dress himself. I've shown a little of that before but, well... here's more, gleaned from a number of comics.

No, none of this is seen as bad in-story. )

Now you know that I have my little... quirks, but I do like me some cute of a weekend, and this hits the spot...

I found a copy of this new book in my local comic shop, HAD to buy it (despite the fact it was the only one that they had in and I think the owner wanted to read it himself, and I wanted to share it because it is AWESOME!

It's called

(If you thought "Batman and Sons" was the a humorous take on the most stressed father/son dynamic out there, think again...)

Have the insulin on standby... )

Ok, my personal golden rule about Star Wars is "post stuff about Star Wars only if it's cool".

This is cool, courtesy of

The Force is strong with this one.

Bad ass, this is. )

I found this short comic on Pixiv, a Japanese-language fanart site. I have no idea what's going on here, but it made me laugh.

Anakin is jealous of Han. ...I think. )
So mature, Anakin.

One panel from "The Return of Ben Kenobi", a newspaper comic which was collected in "Classic Star Wars: The Rebel Storm".

I am sharing it because this is, quite possibly, the most... spectacular canon outfit Luke Skywalker has ever worn.

I am not kidding. )

And, okay, three panels from "The Iskalon Effect", since it has Luke and Leia wearing matching low-cut tops.

Not kidding about this, either. )

He has actually been mocked for his lack of fashion sense in canon, I think.

"The Day After the Death Star" is a Marvel UK comic, drawn by Carmine Infantino. It's 49 pages, but since most of those are only one or two panels, it's not as long as it sounds. Thirteen pages.

It's also the comic where we see Chewie get his medal.

And where Luke fails big time. )

And it must be said: May the Fourth be with you.

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.

Read more... )

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!
