Today's drawing is of those original diesel truckers of the intergalactic highways -- Han Solo & Chewbacca! Of course, these guys originally hit the scene via film, in Star Wars: A New Hope. But the old late 70's - early 80's Star Wars comic books really expounded on the further adventures of this smuggling super duo.

I remember sneaking into my Dad's comic book collection, just to check out his Star Wars comics. They were so damn trippy, like a candy-colored amalgam of Lucas' vision, Buck Rogers and Moebius. And the story lines were outrageous. I can't tell you how many times poor Han & Chewie were forced to go toe-to-toe in some brutal gladiator arena. I guess the writers of those books were real big fans of the 1960's Star Trek series. Seems like there's a "Han vs. Chewbacca" issue for every episode of "Kirk vs. Spock," and then some!

  1. Is Chewie throwin' gang signs? Too frickin' cool, Dave!

  2. Haha, thanks Brett! Hell yeah, Chewie's throwing gang signs. I wanted to get Han and Chewbacca back to their badass, pre-Return of The Jedi roots. Ya know... just two space hustlers, working for the right price and blastin' any fools who get in their way.
