Countdown To Solo: Tag & Bink Were Here

When Ron Howard posted the photo below a lot of Star Wars Legends fans were extremely pleased. The actors pictured are portraying the characters of Tag & Bink ( though one of the characters was originally a Black man but then later changed to a white man by the creators).

The pair are  bumbling Rebels who while escaping from the Empire when they show up on Princess Leia's  Blockade Runner end up disguised as Imperial troopers on the Death Star.

Marvel has recently collected the two mini-series and the Star Wars Tales issue that the pair appeared in at Dark Horse comics. This is a great opportunity to have the parody based stories in you comic collection. Under Disney there isn't a whole lot of Star Wars parodies being allowed and this series has some really funny bits. Tag & Bink often stumble into defining moments  of the original trilogy and even the prequels. They meet Vader, show up on Yavin after the party to end all parties, steal Boba Fette's armor and it turns out they even helped Anakin romance Padme.

This is a fun volume, I'm excited to see Tag & Bink's cinematic debut.
