* HeroicBuild: This was very much a Marvel Comic, and the art often followed this aspect of Marvel's house style. Particularly obvious in the "corner art" depiction of Luke on the cover of every issue. With a bit of art touch-up, the "swordsman" would be indistinguishable from Marvel's ConanTheBarbarian.

* {{Badass}}: Luke once duels Orman Tagge, who'd been training with a lightsaber for almost as long as Luke's been alive, ever since Vader forced him to get cybernetic eyes. Luke had only ever dueled with remotes, but he called on the Force and over matched the other. Tagge pulled a [[TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty trick]]... it didn't work. Later, Tagge was in shock.
--> "…h-he didn't ''kill'' me…! ''Didn't''…need…to…! Controlled stroke so ''perfectly''…destroyed my cyber-vision…without harming ''me''…! He…was ''that'' good…! Th-that…''good''…!"

* OffModel: The initial miniseries was rushed out quickly with two artists working in tandem. The results were some ''very'' inconsistent looks for the characters. In the first issue Luke looks more like [[Franchise/MastersOfTheUniverse He-Man]] than Mark Hamill.

Marvel ''Star Wars'' eventually ran [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Star_Wars_%28Marvel%29 for a total of 107 issues and three annual specials]]. It ended in 1986. The series covered the events of the movies as well as stuff happening between them and eventually after them, making it an ExpandedUniverse before the StarWarsExpandedUniverse as we know it today.

* AdventurerArchaeologist: Han Solo had a tendency to go on adventure-filled treasure hunts in lost ruins in this series -- [[Franchise/IndianaJones even before a certain Harrison Ford film was released in 1981]].

** And of course, with the ''Legends'' decision in 2014, the comic series in its entirety is non-canon, with only a few elements surviving in the new continuity.

** A rare unintended example occurs in one of the annuals. Vader takes in a boy who had found his mother's dead body, openly saying that he was once in the same position. We're meant to think he was lying just to get the boy on his side...but ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'' reveals that he really ''was'' once in the same position.
