#BlowItOutYerRetros! Quite possibly our favorite line from our favorite green bunny, Jaxxon, in this Classic Marvel Star Wars comic! Richard, Sarah and Star Wars artist Randy Martinez tackle this Classic comic, as well as share some thoughts on The Last Jedi. There are some surprising similarities between this comic and the latest film.

Synopsis: This issue begins a brand new arc as Valance, the Hunter, destroys the medical station on Telos-4. When he and his crew of mercenaries hear a patient talking about Han Solo, the boy, and the droids, Valance jumps to conclusions thinking this must be Luke Skywalker! Since there is a big reward for the capture of Luke and Han, Valance follows old favorites Jaxxon and Amaiza to Aduba-3. How hard will it be to take down a couple of second rate bounty hunters and a few farmers in order to apprehend his prey? Valance is in for a big surprise!

Have fun and may the classic comics be with you…
