Luke and the Skyhopper

I created this piece for May 4th 2019 and just got around to posting it here.

Star Wars, A New Hope, for those born some time after 1977 is my favorite of all the films. The piece of art I have drawn is taken from an otherwise forgettable scene of Luke playing/admiring his Sky Hopper model. It’s only a quick snippet in the movie as 3PO is getting his oil bath. (“Thank the Maker”. ) but I think it says a lot. Luke is dreaming of the day when he can go to the academy. Most of his friends have left and he’s just stuck on a desert planet with nothing to do but dream.

Star Wars in the Funny Paper

Back in the late 70's Star Wars was a comic strip in my local newspaper. It wasn't run in the paper for long. Recently I did a little research and found out these comic went from  the late 70's into the 80's and contained several different stories including Han Solo at Star's End. I used to own a pretty large collection of Sunday Funnies. from mid to late 70’s through the 80’s. The image below is from my Sunday Comics collection.

As near as I can tell I have found a compete set of these comics in one place for your reading enjoyment. Just Click Here
