while I very much enjoyed the Last Jedi and saw it 3 times in the theater , I like some of what you did here . some of my impressions after seeing this… …I like the altered musical cues you used as well as the transitions showing the passage of time and the flashback to TFA just before Finn wakes from his Coma was a nice touch
according to this source , Al Williamson drew the 12 strips in 1978 and they were first published in The Art Of Al williamson book in 1983 . If you follow the link to the facebook page there is more info. I also seem to remember reading that Al had some commitments to his Secret Agent X9 strip that he was doing with Archie Goodwin that prevented him from doing the original adaptation, as he was George’s first choice, and he did not feel like he could give his all to the project . When x9 ended , he was freed up to come on board for Empire . anyway , here is the link I mentioned…http://www.battlegrip.com/spotted-online-unpublished-star-wars-comic-strips-by-al-williamson/
^fantastic ! I really enjoyed that .
^agreed . looks like they should have video game life meters over their heads too .
^ Ah, come on man ! You are being too logical ! 😃
^ needs life meters above the combatants 😃
this seems like the appropriate place to leave this …https://www.wired.com/story/cantina-talk-84/?fbclid=IwAR1n48i6qvujd1uo5PfHP9akBNWo6EZiB8GdvSQPBdXQqj0EnCXccHBbhxg&mbid=social_fb&utm_brand=wired&utm_campaign=wired&utm_medium=social&utm_social-type=owned&utm_source=facebook be interesting to hear what people think …
^awesome ! Would love to read some of your project .
I would like to see the two youtube clips combined , the tracking shot from the first one you posted with the dive from the second one.
^ lol …that was the part of the documentary where he was describing how Sy Snootle’s lips should move.
^good question , and yeah , that sure looks like a female Tusken . I dig the art on that cover though and I have always wondered if James Cameron borrowed the look of the Terminator from Valance ,especially in T2 . Valance predates the Terminator by many years and Cameron has been known to lift elements from other sources , such as Harlan Ellison and Roger Dean , the artist behind the albums for prog rock band Yes even tried to sue him for the uncanny similarities between his own work and Avatar .
I just came across this short video:
I like shot composition better shows how the death star is not yet in range. Plus the extra fighters.
^ that is an amazing tracking shot ! and there appear to be about 30 rebel ships , but they’re so small ,they’re evading our turbolasers !
Shocking since the two Jedi docs capture the moment he suggested putting lips on her. 😉
" all it really needs to do is go , this this this ,wow ! this this this ,wow !It’s kind of a binary system "-George Lucas , from Star Wars to Jedi the making of a saga .
^ It was basically a combination of two of my favorite properties…Conan The Barbarian and Star Wars ! His sunsword was practically a lightsaber and Ookla was pretty much a Wookiee .Throw in that fact that a large portion of the show was designed by the late, great Jack Kirby , and what’s not to love ? glad you got the joke Wook !
^ this is true , and the vhs of the original Star Wars came out in 1982 , a full two years before it premiered on network tv and it made the rounds on cable television before network tv
Star Wars as well…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NtQJk9Z44BA
The Empire premiere intro is on youtube…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zHzVjP9sH50
^ oh man , I would keep the CED of Raiders just for the artwork alone and use it as a display piece or hang it on my wall ! those things are the size of record albums and the art looks great on them.
I think AC/DC should retool their song Thunderstruck into Thundarrstruck and have Ookla The Mok come out on stage…
a noble soul who will be greatly missed . GROOOONK !
this looks great !
I have watched the ultimate cut of Watchmen numerous times as well as the fan edit Watchmen Midnight , without so much as one bathroom break . I love that film as well as the original graphic novel . I lose all sense of time watching it and get immersed in it and see new things every time . If a film is good, 3 hours is a cakewalk . Have yet to see Endgame but will try and catch it soon. I would be all for a compelling 3 hour Star Wars film.
Thought this was quite funny;
This was an advertisement for the regular SW series in Return of the Jedi #2. It re-purposed Tom Palmer’s cover for SW #70 (“The Stenax Shuffle”) with some added speech bubbles.
I also just found out that the ROTJ miniseries was coloured differently for the TPB. Does anyone know why this was done?
Here ya go ! scroll down a bit and you will see some info on the coloring of the various Jedi adaptations …seems it had something to do with the paper stock…http://classiccomics.org/thread/1039/star-wars-marvel-reviews-confessor?page=57&scrollTo=153630 oops ! saw that was the source you posted as well , still , interesting question /topic .

Well, from his reaction to seeing Ben, it seems pretty clear Ben had not appeared to him before so Ben would not have been teaching him from beyond the grave. Otherwise there would be no need for Yoda.
It would not make sense for Luke to simply give up on the Force for the three years between ANH and TESB. You wouldn’t go “oh well, my mentor’s dead so I’m out”. The implication is that he kept training - to whatever extent. “But I’ve learned so much” is an indication of that.
The Marvel series had Luke training with remotes, meditating, using the Force in battle, and communing with ghost-Obi Wan. This obviously doesn’t count as ‘canon’, but it does indicate the logic of assuming Luke would carry on as best he could. Marvel were on a tight leash with regard to how much they could develop these characters, and they did not know the details of TESB until very close to the movie. There was a fan letter in one issue circa mid-1980 that said something like “you need to pick up the pace because it looks like Luke will be levitating small objects in the next movie - you guys still have him practising with his Lightsaber”. Again, this is a fan assuming the logic of Luke self-training as best he could. Yoda never said “download these skills you must, save time you will”. Training is crucial in the OT. Not in the ST.
one thing about that original Marvel series you did not mention is that in issue 23 , Luke was able to reach out telepathically and touch Vader’s mind , eliciting a very loud scream of agony from Vader . Pretty advanced stuff for a fledgling Jedi ! No one taught him that trick , but hey , it’s not “canon” after all…
interesting review of the 1994 UK VHS editions , mentions that it is digitally mastered in PAL before the 95 THX Digital remasters …anyone got any answers to the uploader’s questions about them that are posed in this video ? being from the U.S. myself , I am very curious …https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfwQBm7Tdag
