Star Wars Comic #51 with Jabba the Hutt Cover by John Tyler Christopher

October 12, 2018

John Tyler Christopher has apparently been making limited edition covers for Star Wars comics for some time, each one mimicking the style of a vintage Kenner action figure. I’m definitely a fan of that style of packaging. Of course unlike most vintage figures, Jabba was originally sold as part of a boxed playset, but John has reimagined it as a jumbo carded figure that wraps all the way around to the back of the comic, complete with Salacious Crumb next to him. I would love to see a version of the Jabba toy packaged like this.

I don’t regularly read comics anymore, but this one looks pretty well done, although the story inside has nothing to do with Jabba. These were available for sale on John’s website, but at this point you’ll have to get it on the secondary market.
