George Lucas is a Fan of Marvel\’s Han Solo



The Maker himself appears to be a fan of the new Marvel Han Solo comic mini-series, as George Lucas has requested original art from the artist.

Mark Brooks, who draws the mini-series for Marvel, announced on his Facebook that George Lucas wants to purchase every original page from the first two issues of the book:

Original comic art like that will usually go for thousands of dollars for just one page, so this is a pretty big deal if George wants the complete original art for the first two issues.

After his retirement, George has been spotted in comic shops buying issues of Marvel’s Star Wars comics. It appears that Lucas is a fan of the visual genre as when Lucasfilm was licensing fan fiction in the form of the Expanded Universe novels, he didn’t read any of the books but he did read the comics.
