The original Marvel Star Wars series
Time

also updated gallery with a watercolor and ink inspired by Dark Empire , felt appropriate as Dark Empire was originally slated to be a Marvel project …https://screamsinthevoid.deviantart.com/art/Dark-Empire-Luke-728765343

Has anyone read this?

Looks kind interesting

I have read it , I am glad Lucas consulted others and continued with further drafts , it was neat to see one of his original scripts as a comic book though and I enjoyed all of the Ralph Mcquarrie concepts they used . I was wondering what relevance it had to the old Marvel series and then I saw the name of Randy Stradley as the editor and remembered he wrote the original Marvel Star Wars 86 , The Alderran factor ,which was a very good story IMHO and one of the few instances where you see Leia process the loss of her homeworld

The Tie Fighter Sound
Time

and not all of the sounds were from stock libraries , on the commentaries to the blu rays and dvds of the OT , Ben Burrt mentions that the sounds of the walkers are recordings he made at a metal stamping plant and that he got a lot of mileage out of a dumpster lid near his home for things like the carbonite slab of Han Solo crashing to the ground as well as an old projector motor and the back of a crt monitor that his microphone picked up for the hum and buzz of the lightsabers
