Skywalking Through Neverland teams up with Star Wars Artist Randy Martinez to discuss Classic Marvel Star Wars Comics from the 70s and 80s.
In this episode we are diving into Classic Marvel Star Wars Comics #8: “Eight For Aduba” or Magnificent 7 in space. You may recognize this comic as the introduction to several iconic characters, including Jaxxon and Serji-X.
We have our usual top trio to discuss the issue. Star Wars artist Randy Martinez lends his artistic and nostalgic wisdom to the discussion. Richard also remembers reading these comics as a kid, but Sarah is younger than the comics themselves, and is the voice of the newbie. All three create a fun dynamic as we discuss word such as “FORP!” “SCHINK!” and “Begone, Defilers of the Sacred Way!”
