Empire Strikes Back by Miller, Simonson, Byrne, and more
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back by Frank Miller, John Byrne, Terry Austin, Walt Simonson, Michael Golden, Fred Hembeck, Marie Severin, Marshall Rogers, Joe Jusko, and Bob Layton. Wow! How cool is that?!?!? Check it out below.
I’ve wrapped up my Star Wars Resume coverage for now, but I just had to post these fantastic Star Wars pin-ups! They originally appeared in Marvel Comics‘ Star Wars issues #43 & 44 from 1980. Some of the scans below come from the original issues, while others come from the reprinted and re-colored trade paperbacks Star Wars: A Long Time Ago.
I had forgotten about these pin-ups until I recently heard them discussed on the Two True Freaks Monthly Monday Star Wars podcasts. I’ve mentioned these podcasts a few times this week. If you are a fan of Star Wars, you really should give these podcasts a try. Scott and Chris are incredibly knowledgeable in the area of Star Wars and they’re also friggin’ hilarious! In addition to their Star Wars show, they produce a monthly Star Trek show, and multiple comic book related shows. Give these guys a try! They are definitely worth your time.
Here are the promised Empire Strikes Back images. Click each image to enlarge.
