The Purloined Plans
What if Star Wars had been a series of pulpy crime thrillers? Well… Artist Timothy Anderson has created just that in this cool little series of Star Wars pulp style book cover art, each of his books represents a film from the original trilogy (thankfully) and has renamed each of them with a funky new title. He recently did some similar ones for Alien, Blade Runner and Matrix which was also featured on this blog.

The Elements of Star Wars
For the an Über Star Wars fan like me, this new periodic table of Star Wars characters which DesignoMatt.com have created tickles my inner geek on so many levels. The best thing of all is that they’ve only characters from the original trilogy episodes: IV, V, and VI for their Elements Table, much in the same way as they did the Elements of Attractions at the Magic Kingdom.

Luke and The Binary Sunset
This is quite a major alert in the GeekDom World
…What if Star Wars, the best story ever! Actually happened in a 1980′s High School? Well the über creative Denis Medry
(creator of the Batman Rockabilly Universe
series) has done just that in these wonderful illustrations of the high school adventures of Luke, Han, Leia, Chewy, Vader, and the rest of the crew.
You can almost visualise the movie in the style of Grease or even Back to the Future with Robert Zemeckis behind the lens instructing a young Luke Skywalker played by Michael J. Fox to ‘Use the Force Luke’.
Control, control, you must learn control!
No. *I* am your father.
Luke Skywalker & Princess Leia
Enough of this! Vader, release him!

He made a fair move. Screaming about it can’t help you.

Jabba Palpatine & Tarkin

Han old buddy! so good to see you
Oh. They’ve encased him in Carbonite.
Ben saves Luke from the Sand People
This Medry guy has some serious talent, which I’d pay good money to buy his Graphic Novel of The Star Wars 80’s High School or The Rockabilly Batman Universe… here’s hoping some publisher will give him an advance to realise his vision.
