Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Many characters appear in a very different form than they do in the movie. This is usually because many of the the comics were written before the films were released so the artists relied on concept art that didn't make the final cut or just guesswork. Most notably, Jabba appears as a yellow, bipedal walrus like guy.

** Another good example would be Jaxxon, a giant green bunny man. Legend has it that Lucas stated that Marvel were to never, ''ever'', use him again. His race, the Lepi, has resurfaced in more recent RPG material.

* PettingZooPeople: The "Lepus carnivorus", better known as [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Lepi Lepi]], such as Jaxxon himself, are man-sized, green-furred sentient rabbits.



* RuleOfFunny: Disco planet? Funny. Green carnivorous bunny? Funny. Goth elves? Hilarious. Hoojibs? Possibly their own MemeticMutation.

Added DiffLines:

* CoversAlwaysLie:
** On the cover of issue 1, Darth Vader's helmet is green and shaped more like a gas mask.
** The cover of issue 5. As the Death Star, visible in the sky, fires two lasers on the planet's surface, Luke tells Chewbacca, "Hurry, Chewbacca! We're being attacked by the Death Star!" Han replies, "It's too late kid! We're finished!" This is part five of an adaptation of ''Film/ANewHope'', and includes no such scene.
** The main cast is referred to as The Star Warriors on the covers, but not in the stories. Probably better that way.

* AscendedExtra: Lando Calrissian is very prominent in the stories set between TheEmpireStrikesBack and ReturnOfTheJedi, more so than in either movie. This, of course, is justified by him having to play the part of TheLancer in Han Solo's absence.

* OutOfFocus: The Empire itself in the first year or so of the series run. Between issue #6 (the last installment of the adaptation of ''ANewHope'') and issue #18 the Empire did not appear 'onscreen' ''at all'' except in the form of flashbacks which the villains in the interim being space pirates, mercenaries and raiders. After this though the Empire was almost never OutOfFocus again until the post-[=RotJ=] stories.

* RememberTheNewGuy: Sort of. Wedge Antilles was in ANewHope, but never featured in the non-movie-adaptation comics until "Hoth Stuff", when he was suddenly Luke's oldest friend and had Biggs Darklighter's backstory.

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: [[ShoutOut Don-Wan Khiotay]], seemingly a loony old guy who believes he's the last of the Jedi, is skilled enough to hold his own alongside hardened mercenaries.



* PaperTiger: [[ShoutOut Don-Wan Khiotay]], seemingly a loony old guy who believes he's the last of the Jedi, is surprisingly badass, and holds his own alongside hardened mercenaries.

A long time ago, in a comic book market far, far away, MarvelComics released an official comic-book adaptation of the movie ''Franchise/StarWars Episode IV: Film/ANewHope'' (then simply called ''Star Wars'') in 1977. Like the movie, this adaptation was a success, and so Marvel continued publishing the comic beyond the end of the original story.

* EightiesHair: Near the end of the series, Luke ended up with a mullet.

* EightiesHair: Near In the end of the series, infamously bizarrely-drawn last issue, Luke ended up with a mullet.



* ArtShift: Starting with the adaptation of ''The Empire Strikes Back'', the art changes from Carmine Infantino's loose, angular style to a more detailed look with much closer likenesses to the film characters (usually veteran inker Tom Palmer over Al Williamson or Walt Simonson.) The last issue also has a strikingly different style than its predecessors.

The last issue also has a strikingly ''strikingly'' different style than its predecessors.predecessors. For example, for some reason Luke's gone from a slim short-haired figure wearing mostly black and wielding a lightsaber into a perpetually shirtless mulleted wall of beef toting a BFG he never once fires.

* EnemyMine: Leia and Luke are forced to combine forces with a squad of Imperial commandos to survive a hostile planet in a 1980 storyline. While one of the commandos is a complete scumbag their overall leader is portrayed as a sympathetic WorthyOpponent who just happens to be on the wrong side and Leia even tries to persuade him to defect. [[spoiler: He refuses, using a MyCountryRightOrWrong arguement.]]

He also had a dirty trick in mind that he planned to use if it came to that, which he was [[http://images.plurk.com/f86a25c446b7468d6de5a8495d8aa553.jpg forced]] to use [[http://images.plurk.com/95a2c33a71edb1d1bc682b6fe26bc713.jpg on Luke]] - namely, he planned to ''have the lights go out'' during the fight.

* UnwantedHarem: Luke around Zeltrons, at least until he apparently gets used to them. "Chanteuse of the Stars" has him actively fleeing from hot red women who think he's the most beautiful man they've ever seen. Eventually one of them (Dani) becomes a close, platonic friend partly because she fell for someone else and so stopped chasing him and partly because she went through a lot of CharacterDevelopment.
