My Star Wars Comic Book Cover
In a rather self-indulgent moment I created a comic book cover for my short story, The Slave Traders of Tatooine, depicting my heroic Star Wars Role Playing Game alter-ego, Grus Gyre, about to save they day (again) by rescuing a helpless, barely-clothed girl from the clutches of some nasty ol' slave traders. (Seems to be a favorite pastime for Grus.) The cover art is intended to reflect the often racy style of some pre-Comics Code comics. In keeping with tradition it is also a "teaser" - the scene depicted on the cover doesn't actually occur in the story. You can click on the image below to view the full-sized version. Note famed smuggling king Talon Karrde standing beside Grus. Enjoy!
