In this episode we are diving into Classic Marvel Star Wars Comic #8: “Eight For Aduba” or Magnificent 7 in space. You may recognize this comic as the introduction to several iconic characters, including Jaxxon and Serji-X.
We have our usual top trio to discuss the issue. Star Wars artist Randy Martinez lends his artistic and nostalgic wisdom to the discussion. Richard also remembers reading these comics as a kid, but Sarah is younger than the comics themselves, and is the voice of the newbie. All three create a fun dynamic as we discuss word such as “FORP!” “SCHINK!” and “Begone, Defilers of the Sacred Way!”
