This scene from Return of the Jedi is pretty great; it shows one of the Empire’s biggest ships being taken down, and Akbar’s tired relief at the victory gave the character a dose of, for lack of a better word, humanity. It’s filled with great details.

Cartoonist Daniel Warren Johnson loved this scene. “For some reason, this A wing pilot MOVED me,” he wrote. “Everything about this part of Return of the Jedi made me want to DRAW and CREATE.”

So he created a comic about that character. I’ve put a few panels up in this post to give you some idea of how it looks, but please visit the site for the full series of pages. Beware: It’s going to get pretty dusty.
