With Star Wars becoming such a popular series of comic books the world over, it stands to reason that there would be news reports and parodies based on the comics and the movies as well.

Marvel Age was a comic-sized news magazine that reported on the latest news in the titles the publisher reported, and Star Wars was featured several times. In addition, the fan magazine FOOM (Fans Of Old Marvel) also ran a feature on Star Wars, and all three covers are featured below.

As far as parodies are concerned, there are many instances of this throughout comic books, including the 1991 Epic limited series Samurai Cat, who showcased a lightsaber battle on the third issue's cover.

Finally, there was a short comic book story (of sorts) that was really a Return of the Jedi contest for the film and the toys that was bundled into random titles.

The new 75159 UCS Death Star has been announced and it's 99.5% re-release of a set, at an additional $100, that was only retired less than 12 months ago. How do you feel about this addition to the LEGO Star Wars line?
Ecstatic: it's LEGO Star Wars after all!
Great: I didn't get a chance to buy 10188.
Fair to middling: I like to build and it has some nice new additions.
meh: the UCS range is meant to be special.
Harrumph: 10188 is cheaper on eBay.
Fuming: abject failure in market research and imagination.
