I flipped thru it at B&N today. It looks nice--but from my point of view, it's more a "starter" reference than the be-all-end-all encyclopedia it first appeared. 90% of what's in there is covered in far more detail in the Essential Guides, Technical Journals, etc. etc.

I got this for Christmas last year from the Mrs., and have just started reading through it a little more closely.  Definitely a very fun book.  I have a quick question, and it might be stupid, but for those of you more familiar with Star Wars comics.....in the "Rogues and Scoundrels" section of the book, where it discusses Han Solo among others, there is a small picture inset of Han and Chewie that looks like its from a comic.  It is discussing when Han saves/rescues Chewbacca while Solo is an Imperial cadet.  Anyways, does anyone know what comic(s) this is from?  I'm always interested in OT-based stories like that, and that one in particular might be a fun read.  I know it is sort of an obscure question, but I was just wondering if anyone knew?

That sounds really familiar.  I've got the full run of Marvel Star Wars comics from the '80s, perhaps it's from one of them.  Does the comic pic look like that style?

...edit... After looking around, it may just be issue #91:

Thanks Jesse, that might just be it.  I was looking on MileHighComics and saw that there as well...might have to order it.  Thanks again, I really appreciate it.
