Nothing but Star Wars
Give me those Star Wars
Don't let them end
Ah, Star Wars
If they should bar wars
Please let these Star Wars
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...say, 1977 at the local movie theater...we all piled in with our buckets of popcorn and our big cups of Mr. Pibb to see Star Wars yet another time. We didn't even know that it was called A New Hope yet! But we could recite all the lines and dialogue from the movie, over and over again, until we all knew 'em by heart.
Let's revisit those timeless, classic lines of dialogue from Star Wars...through the magic of Marvel Comics!
Here, Darth Vader (and the caption) let us know that Captain Antilles (no relation to Wedge) is not only merely dead, he's almost most sincerely dead. Say, need a throat lozenge, Raymus?
Darth Vader of the comics is even more impressive than the movie version...because in the comic book, he doesn't even spill his Starbucks coffee as he force-throttles General Motti, who, he alerts us, just has to laugh. Good to the last drop, Darth!
What, Luke? What were you going to do in Toshi Station? Gosh, we'll never know now!
You know, Obi-Wan Kenobi has been called a lot of things over the course of six movies, a couple cartoon series, and umpty-ump Expanded Universe sagas, but I think it's safe to say he's never been called that.
Wait a minute, is he your only hope or your last hope? Curse these crummy recording droids!
No, Luke, no! Remember what your Uncle Owen said! When you're with that crazy old wizard, never touch any button, not brightly colored ones, especially not ones 'by the pommel'!
Hey, Obi, what happened to the scum?
Who knew Walrus Man was so verbal? Oh, sorry, I mean Ponda Baba. He and his hetero lifepartner Dr. Evazan only appear for a few panels here, but like all Star Wars cantina denizens, were later slated to appear in multi-part Expanded Universe sagas that postulate their entire history from birth to the end of the universe. For example, we later discover that
Ah, that explains that. Not parsecs, par-secs. It makes perfect sense now.
Hey, kids, it's Walrus Jabba!
"...or it could have been that chili I had for lunch."
Darn it, Hamill! Stop trying to pad your part by ad-libbing!
Hey kids, special bonus: Clip 'n' save this vaguely off-model Star Wars pin-up!
Howard Chaykin-drawn busty spread-legged Princess Leia says "Well, hello there, space sailor!"
To be continued? You wish!!
