Star Wars/Indy crossover story in new comic!

The "Star Wars/Indiana Jones" crossover story from Star Wars Tales #19 (by Haden Blackman and Sean Murphy which features Indy and Shortround discovering a crashed Millenium Falcon) gets reprinted in a new comic exclusive for fans who join the Star Wars Official Hyperspace Fan Club and order a Member Kit!

Here's an exerpt of what Star Wars Editor Randy Stradley mentioned in the Dark Horse Forums:

"The comic is all reprint material (except for Pablo Hidalgo's hilarious Star Wars send-ups of classic comic book ads). It features the Tsuneo Sanda frontispiece from Panel to Panel Volume 2 as its wraparound cover, and includes the Commander Cody story from the 2006 Free Comic Book Day comic (by myself and Doug Wheatley) and Haden Blackman and Sean Murphy's Star Wars/Indiana Jones "crossover" story from Star Wars Tales #19"

http://www.darkhorse.com/boards/view...ab47cd84ec0197

Here's what the cover of the exclusive comic looks like:




The price for the Membership Kit is $14.95 and can be ordered here:

Great collectable for Indy comic fans!

It's not canon.








Sorry, I just had to.

The "Star Wars Tales" 1-20 stories weren't exactly canon either but there is an Indy appearance & Shortround in that short story.

It at least deserves some comic recognition! Especially when it features Han Solo and Indiana Jones together in the last page!

I remember that last page. Hilarious stuff. Indy sees this wall with this strange huge marking and it's in fact, the Millenium Falcon and Shorty is asking him what it is and Indy sure as hell doesn't have a clue.

I liked that story they did, was real fun. I wonder if they will ever put it in the Dark Horse Indy Omnibus'?

Well, a quick google search saved me 14.95

Pretty neat!

Awful way for Han Solo to go out though. Thank God it isn't canon.

The story is also available in these back issues too (with art and variant photo covers):



I like how they hyperspaced into this universe where they land on an "Endor-like" planet (Earth) and crash into the jungle to be found by Indy! Wonder what became of Chewbacca at the end of the story.....

He becomes a legend: Big Foot.

It would just suck if that's how Han Solo died!

I've read that Grey Cloud from "Mystery of the Blues" is also with them. Is this true?
I really want this one but don't think I'll be ordering this "exclusive" membership kit.
All the same, thanks for the info, yodazone!

So, how 'bout Gray Gloud? Is he in it, or no? (See Post #9)
Congrats on your score!

I swear if that happens when I'm watching KOTCS next month, I may just give up on movies altogether....not out of anger, but out of a normal human response to pure unfiltered BIZARRE!

ummm....about Grey Cloud...they don't exactly reference him by name in the story but here's the page where it might be him:



Can't tell if it's him but Shortround's in the story!

Hmmm...Looks too young to be Grey Cloud. Doesn't this story take place in 1949
(only 1 year before "Mystery of the Blues")? Maybe it's Grey Cloud's son...

Anyway, thanks a million for posting that scan, yodazone! I appreciate it!

Well, I don't know if this will make sense or not, but it could be Indiana Jones canon if not Star Wars, right? I mean nothing controversial really happens to him. It's just a very short, failed mission with unresolved mysteries.
Of course, the lack of violence does make it rather implausible...
Anyway please forgive me if that was a stupid idea. Just thinking through the keyboard I guess.

Even though it isn't canon, its still surprisingly sad. Seeing Han go out to several arrows. And the ending: Indy's "Lets leave him as part of the great unknown" line struck a chord as well. Nice little tale, and more emotionally impacting than I though this "Elseworlds" tale I'd heard so much about would be.
