The scans of "The Kashyyyk Depths" were done by an anonymous person years ago.
For those intrigued by the story, IDW has published a three-volume set
compiling the entire five-year newspaper strip as part of The Library of
American Comics. HIGHLY recommended, and these nine pages appear in volume one
in much better quality.

Blue Milk Special has published parody strips for the entire original trilogy,
Splinter of the Mind's Eye, Shadows of the Empire, The Star Wars Holiday
Special, and are currently working through Heir to the Empire. Reproduced here
is just the first of forty SWHS strips, and they skewer every aspect of the
Special. Hilarious and also highly recommended.

Matt Busch's painting "Encounter on Panna Prime" (background for the animation
screen) still had a few copies left in his online store when last checked.
It’s even more gorgeous in real life.

This BD is a -not for profit- fan created transfer, intended for entertainment and educational use only.
