George Lucas is obsessed with this Han Solo comic book and wants to buy every original page

George Lucas certainly approves of Marvel Comics’ latest “Han Solo” series.

The “Star Wars” creator emailed Marvel comic-book artist Mark Brooks asking to purchase every original page from “Han Solo #1” and “#2.”

“Surreal is an understatement,” Brooks said in a post on his Facebook (below) reacting to the request from Lucas.

“Han Solo #1″ and #2” are both available now, and “#3” will be released on August 3.

The series is written by Marjorie Liu and finds everyone’s favourite scoundrel on a top-secret undercover mission for the Rebellion, with his cover as a contestant in the biggest and most infamous starship race in the galaxy.

(Is this the potential source material for the future standalone Han Solo film?)

It’s certainly a better reaction than the rather quiet one he gave to “The Force Awakens,” comparing it to a divorce and calling the situation an “awkward reality.”

Hey, you can’t please George Lucas all the time.
