Okay, I don’t know if it is technically an Episode VII rendition of Luke Skywalker by Phil Noto. What I do know is that it is a gorgeous rendition of an older Skywalker by the brilliant artist. I can’t get enough.
Well shit! Shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that Marky Hamill thinks he is going to be up in the Episode VIIIIIIIIIII (or something) house. His melty faced companion Hans Solow is going to be in the film, so why wouldn’t he? Still though, the actor hasn’t signed any sort of agreement yet. I mean, this is all just a formality at this point. Right?
Denis Medri has imagined Star Wars characters as teens in the 1980s, and the result is about as balling as you would expect. There is nothing like multi-cultural-inbreeding to bring out the rampant nostalgia beasts. They have like a zillion horns, drink only at soda foundations, and have been known to demand their McDonald’s in styrofoam.
I hadn’t come across this riffage of Luke Skywalker by Paul Pope for Star Wars Art: Comics, despite the fact that I’m pretty sure Rendar owns the book. Oh well! Better later than never. God bless The Pope, and that intersection between talented artist and childhood staples.

It must be the Autumn’s nostalgia-laced air, but I find this video to be several shades of awesome. A father tapes his son’s reaction to finding out Vader is Luke’s father for the first time. Ah, memories.
