Cool Find: Jack Kirby drew Star Wars


Jack Kirby drew Star Wars! 


1994’s Star Wars Galaxy 2 trading card series included one card (#240) that featured Jack Kirby and Michael Thibodeaux’s drawing of Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker.

Here is the actual trading card.  If someone has a better scan of this card, please let me know.  You can e-mail me at BetweenThePagesBlog [at] gmail [dot] com.


While I think it is wonderful that Jack Kirby drew Luke and Vader, this isn’t Kirby’s best work.  Darth Vader’s head looks way too small in proportion to his arms.  Plus, Luke must have been eating his Wheaties because I’ve never seen him look so buff.
