‘Stealing Solo: A Captain’s Parody‘ is a satirical graphic novel created by Jeff Hicks, who managed not one but two successful crowdfunding campaigns.
Jeff is furious after seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens, especially seeing the fate of his favorite character Han Solo. He spirals into a depression and begins acting like a jerk to his roommates Kendo and Nik. The two of them are worried about Jeff, so while he is off visiting family, they want to surprise him. Using a green screen and mock sets, they want to recut the film. There is just one problem. They need the man himself, known other than Harrison Ford to make their movie. They make a devious plan to kidnap the star at his private airport, but will this insane plan work?
I will be honest… I laughed throughout this whole comic book. I had a blast reading it and seeing all of the chaos unfold as this foolhardy plan gets put into motion. The story is well-crafted, well-illustrated, and in the scenes with Harrison Ford, they definitely caught his onery side. It was a blast from beginning to end and a great time.
I supported the second crowdfunding effort known as Stealing Solo: The Fandom Menace. It featured a great custom cover from Anna That Star Wars Girl which featured her and a bunch of YouTube personalities who took heat for criticizing the Disney trilogy.
