Star Warz


My youngest son Archie just watched Star Wars today for the first time, so I was inspired to show you this. It's the first page of a story that I did with two friends, Peter and David, after we saw the original film when it came out in the UK in 1978. I saw it on my 13th birthday and was obsessed with the film from then on. We'd started making film parody comics starring ourselves a few months earlier. I'm the kid with glasses and the stripey hoodie. I was a fashion plate even back then...

A hardcover collection of these stories is available from the link for The Kids From Rec Road on the right...

That takes me back. I wish I had saved all of the Star Wars comics I had made. Great art, by the way.
