Are you ready to take a trip with us to Droid World? In the early days of Star Wars - 1981 - this comic book world was inhabited by colorful and vengeful warbots! Luke Skywalker, R2-D2 and C-3P0 go on an adventure and we are here for it! Richard and Sarah share their thoughts as they read through this classic Marvel comic. Do you remember reading it? Did you listen to the adapted book-and-record The Further Adventures: Droid World (1983)? Or is this your first time?


We recommend watching the video version (above) of this episode which contains the full comic as we page through it.


Star Wars collector referenced in the episode.



Classic Marvel Star Wars Comics #47 “DROID WORLD"


Release Date: February 24, 1981
Writer: Archie Goodwin
Artwork: Carmine Infantino, Gene Day, Glynis Wein
Cover Art:  James Sherman and Frank Miller


The Rebel Alliance has captured a damaged Imperial warbot and request assistance from the cyborg Kligson of the droid-populated space station to repair the droid so it can be studied. 


Kligson agrees to fix the droid, but R2-D2 and C-3PO must accompany the warbot to observe the operation since Kligson intends to keep it after it's repaired. However things go sideways as an ex-imperial has other ideas.
