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.
