CLASSIC ART: HAPPY 35th BIRTHDAY, BOBA FETT!
Riding fearlessly through the sludge seas of Panna, atop the intergalactic equivalent of "Nessie", the mysterious, helmeted figure of Boba Fett comes to the aide of the crash-landed Rebel heroes within the Millennium Falcon. But is he friend...or foe?
Wonderful art by Jamie Snell, with inks by Emily Jayne Weber (from the DEVIANT ART website) recreating this classic moment from 1978's STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL popular animated segment, handled by Nelvana Studios. It's a worthy showcase celebrating the character's long-admired 35th year within STAR WARS folklore.
