365 Days of Star Wars Comics, Day 194: I've Got a Bad Feeling About This Week, Day 1: Let's All Go to the Movies


Hey, I'm hooked on a feeling!


No, no, wrong feeling...also, wrong space-fantasy franchise. Nope, I'm talkin' 'bout the reccuring in-joke of the Star Wars Universe — the line "I've got a bad feeling about this," spoken by everyone from Han Solo to…well, Han Solo's pals. It pops up in every single G-canon Star Wars movie, altho' I'm not certain if it's in The Star Wars Holiday Special or The Ewok Adventure. Because that would require me to watch those. And, just as the Star wars comic book adapt the swashbuckling lightsaber action and all-out blaster adventure, they too adapt that famous line into the comic book universe, right from the very beginning with the first Marvel adaptation.
