    So I was looking through my copy of the Star Wars Year By Year A Visual Chronicle book and I was interested in the part about Marvel Comic's Star Wars 16 specificlly it's cover.

    Who/what is the rabbit like thing on the cover? I would appreciate it if someone who has read it could tell me.

    Either way, it's certainly not the only time SW has ripped off Marvel. (Even though the former case would technically an instance of Marvel ripping off itself. :oops: )

    TCW and SW Legacy both have references to Jaxxon.
    Legacy: the bartender on Tatooine was a Lepi.
    The episode in which the droid squad crashes on that planet has a reference to Jaxxon.

    Personnally, I do not think the comics in which Jaxxon appeared were that bad. I like the issue in which Valance tracks them down.
