    I hope the current Spanish publisher of the Dark Horse Star Wars comics gets a deal with Disney/Marvel to keep publishing the new Star Wars comics!!!

    I loved those old Marvel comics. Some of the ideas and characters were crazy (or just downright silly), but I think they really captured the tone of the original films more than people give them credit for.
    When I think of EU, that is what immediately springs to mind, for me.
    Most of the novels and more recent Dark Horse stuff didn't really do it for me, to be honest. Perhaps more polished in their own right, but somehow lacking the sense of fun that the Marvel stories had...
    Nice to see that nod to Chaykin's work.

    I didn't realized how universal and popular was Cervantes's Don Quixote, until I saw Don-Wan Kihotay

    And subscribed.
    Make that Darth Vader and the Leia mini series as well.
    Used to love the campy goodness that was Marvel's Star Wars.

    It varies? Kidding. Idk but I think it's smart with all the different covers that collectors would buy. Mo money.

    With all the different covers scattered in different locations it'll probably be extremely difficult to purchase them all. Unless of course you have the means.

    I am curious. More so if this is canon, because comic books are my favorite media in Star Wars lore besides the Movies.
    I also have the first two infamous Marvel run omnibuses of A Long Time Ago... and I did enjoy that Marvel run as being the reflection of that time with all the crazy 70's-80's comic book trophys. It starts to get more fun after the Empire Strikes Back, the volumes in-between ANH and ESB are kind of boring and weird a lot (they wouldn't be, if the artists at that time had closer relationship with Lucasfilm or more source material, the could at least match the designs better).

    The Aliens comic from Darkhorse is weird in the same way.
