Chinese Star Wars Comic From 1980

Just learned today of a this interesting, practically unknown, piece of Star Wars history.

This is a unlicensed mini-comic done in a style called ' lianhuanhua' which is real popular in China.

It is very much worth checking out.

I love the art, even if most of it looks nothing like anything we see in the actual movie. A lot of odd use of characters (Oddly enough most of them from The Empire Strikes Back) in the wrong places, like the medical droid 2-1B as an imperial captain.

Always interesting to see one of these odd pieces that are out there.

  1. My favorite one so far is panel 50. A very unique depiction of Obi-Wan wearing plate mail, riding a missile firing motor bike as a flashback to when he was a Jedi Knight.
    Love it
