I am finding out more and more about the influence French comics from the 70s and early 80s had on the original trilogy (and even the prequels). If you want to know what I mean, watch this: I think that the comics of creators like Moebius, Mezieres and Druillet must have had an influence on Lucas and the designers Star Wars. Some of the resemblances in that clip are simply too close to be a mere accident. Do you agree? Do you maybe have more examples?
