    You also have the awesome Lahsbees who when they hit puberty turn into an Incredible Huhk.

    We even get a special story where Leia's singing jump starts one of them into puberty, much like how her ROTJ bikini did for a number of Earth boys.

    Thats a tough one, I liked all of the Marvel Star Wars issues (107 plus 3 annuals and the 4 issue ROTJ adaption) along with the 14 Ewoks comics and 8 issue Droids. What I enjoyed out of those comics was the wonder of exploring different things from the universe. Now looking back some of the stories were werid, strange and at times odd, but man they were fun and weren't to stuck on continutiy. There was also a limit to jedi and hardly nothing on sith, making the stories more in line with the movies. They were some exceptions, but not many. You had the occasional super stuff like the Tarkin, or the Darker from issue 68, or issue 91 I think were you had cat people and Luke using the force to levitate Leia. Even the Ewok and Droids comic books resembled there animated counter parts of their's. So yeah, we had the invisible soap from the Ewok show, and in the comic you had the rainbow bridge, Morag the Witch flying with the beanstalk beast, thats how I call it, to a one time rare transporter usage (Book 14) like in star trek. It was all light fun.

    Maybe thats why I'm looking forward ti the Wild Space Omnibus. Not so much for the content that came afterwards, but the different stuff that we didn't get like Pizazz and the Marvel UK stuff. When I add the above listed with the Newspaper strip adaptions, they make good star wars and was reflective of the time (late 70's early 80's. Sometimes it makes me wonder, if this was why the loved the old trilogy so much. We had the 10 novels (3 movie novelizations, the Splinter of the Minds Eye, the three Han Solo Books and the three Lando books), we had the comics, the two Ewok movies that were pretty good, the animated series, the well, not so good Star Wars special, and the occassional making of stuff but that wasn't so important but if you had it, its good.. If you had the movies, the comics books and the novels you pretty much had everything. Nice, and self contained. I look at Star Wars afterwards and while its been pretty good and helped revive the franchise, one wonders if the stuff is as memorable as the first.

    And it gave us Cinda Tarheel, who, while not *the* most badass lady to ever hop into an X-wing, is probably in the top five. It's a crime how little page time she's gotten since then.

    He was a stunt swoop driver and just kept the name when he went Bandit. ;) OOU Roy Thomas named him for a fellow comic artist.

    It seems like a very "Lucas-y" sort of name to me. Right up there with Elan Sleazebaggano.

    He was named for Mad Magazine artist Sergio Aragones. Here's an example of his SW work he did for Mad:

    I just noticed something, in particular that no one has yet mentioned the greatest Expanded Universe Character ever written originated in the Star Wars Marvel Comics.

    Mount Sorrow from their Ewoks Comics.

    Oh boy...
    I have yet to buy the Ewoks and Droids omnibus. It looks like I'll find a new definition of the word "weirdness".

    Like I said, the Marvel stuff was pretty good.
