176: “They’re all over you, Biggs!”
c.1982/83? | age 14/15? Things are starting to look pretty dicey for Biggs. Oh dear…
Things are not looking too good for Luke’s childhood pal Biggs today. Did I mention several (thousand) times already that Gabby, Johnny and «I met him? Ah yes, I think I did mention many times that «I met him. Great bloke. He’s done his Star Wars homework too—knows his stuff. One of these days I’ll actually write that proper blog post about it—before I forget the entire conversation!
. . .
You could be forgiven for thinking that Biggs in the last panel, is actually the late Porkins. I’m putting Biggs’ sudden weight-gain down to extreme stress.
I’m getting a wee bit bored with these 1982 or ’83 pages now, but thankfully the next will be an earlier one. Earlier, but tweaked and coloured sometime later—with terrific results! In fact I have to say, it makes the hairs on my forearms and neck stand on end: it’s got the emotional tingle factor! It’s kind of explosive.
I’ll look forward to reading what you think of it. Maybe you’ll be non-plussed but seriously, for me: it packs a HUGE dramatic and emotional punch. And I don’t think it’s even based on any of the Marvel adaptation.
Can’t wait to show it to you!
