Story Time with Jason #1 - Star Wars Part 4: A New Empire

I've been digging around in some boxes in the garage and closet and apparently I used to make lots of really cool comic books. These comic books are so awesome I thought I'd share them with you.  The first one is Star Wars: Part 4 - A New Empire.  

I always knew I'd see my name in lights one day.
I believe I did this around the age of 8 or 9 or so. Maybe younger, maybe 10, who really knows, but I was young enough to not understand that Star Wars WAS Part 4 and I didn't know what the piss an "episode" was either apparently.  I'm putting smaller pics here on the blog with a caption below each one.  If you want to see a much bigger pic, click the captions.

The story starts with...umm...I think it's the ol' big space ship chasing the little space ship but who can really tell?

Maybe it's a ship being chased by a big tie?
Then we cut to fat C-3PO and R2-D2 standing around while waaaaaayyyy above them is a tiny little box with what appears to be a very tiny Princess Leia in it. But my favorite part is that just below the box you can see I was obviously drawing a bigger Leia and then erased it. Apparently I thought a normal sized Leia would be confusing. The whole tiny box thing makes soooo much more sense and gets across my artistic vision.

If you look at the larger pic I dare you not to stare at C-3PO's giant cock bulge.
On page 3 we have what appears to be Luke Skywalker talking to The Emperor. WTF?  A swerve and we're only on page 3!!  M. Night Shamanlanadingy has NOTHING on me. I wonder if this would've made more sense with dialogue?

That's right, Star Wars Part 4 is a silent movie.
Then...oh man...Luke vs Vader.  I know what you're thinking.  Vader should be dead right?  Hell no, another TWIST!  Also, didn't I own crayons?  Why wouldn't I color the swords up?  Apparently I loved black and white silent movies before I even saw one. I also hated filling the screen. Widescreen sucks.

Is it just me or are they fighting with pirate swords?
And then we got this epic space battle between a X-Wing and a big blocky explosion thingie!    . 

This is ILM level stuff here.  
And then on page 6 we get...

Did that really deserve a whole page?

And that's the end of Star Wars Part 4 - A New Empire.  I hope you enjoyed it.  It was certainly better than the prequels.  I have 4 more to put up.  So get ready for some Godzilla, some King Kong, some Thundercats and my epic story, The Tank.
