    Luke gets yet another girlfriend? Okay. Bet this one is psychotic too.

    Lumiya big time. Quite a few others have tried to kill him. Amusingly, wookieepedia considers S'byll a love interest, in which case... "psychotic" doesn't begin to cover it.

    Dani occasionally seemed to have a few screws loose as well.

    So you're referring to Marvel? Don't have any plans to read those.

    Yeah, Marvel gave him a few love interests. The greatest compliment I can give it is that none of them were boring. They ranged from somewhat annoyingly quirky (Tanith Shire) to unhealthily obsessed (Dani) to slightly crazy (Lumiya) to bat**** insane (S'ybll, a character from the comic strips).

    And hey, Mara had a dead man talking in her head for a large portion of her adult life, so I'm not sure I'm ready to call her perfectly sane either :p

    Han on Coruscant sounds interesting.

    Pretty certain Tanith was the Goodwin-Williamson newspaper strip.

    Yeah, she was, now that I think about it. I read the newspaper strip and the Marvel series at the same time, so they're pretty much one in the same in my mind.

    I love seeing an X-wing with all four lasers quaded up! Reminds me of many an hour spent playing old Lucasarts flightsim games. :cool:

    Why is this superior cover on the DH site?

    Hey, has anyone here ordered comics from Things From Another World? (DH's website suggested them.) My local comic shop isn't stocking this series :mad:and the drive to the other one is kind of a pain.

    Heh, it reminds me of the X-wing covers, particularly with the long laser lines.

    TFAW are good. I've bought a few things from them.

    Good thing for Luke's 'female friend' that this series is coming out after FotJ, otherwise, she would be dead about now.

    I'm sure they can retcon it in Crucible.

    My jaw literally dropped when I saw that cover. That is absolutely fantastic.

    I can't wait for issue #4. Can't wait to see more of the Han and Chewie storyline! 2 pages of Han isn't close to enough!

    Every single issue has had an amazing cover.

    Someday Dark Horse should consider printing posters of their covers. I'd wallpaper my room with 'em.

    So who do you guys think the Imperial spy is? Personally I think this 'Wedge' guy is a bit suspicious...I mean, he just happens to survive the Death Star when everyone else in his squadron is killed? Yeah, right!

    Now that you mention it... Wedge does look sorta different in ANH than he does in anything else. It's quite possible we're dealing with an imposter.

    Maybe he is related to Ace Azzamean?
