What would the adventures have been like if Star Wars had been pulpy crime thrillers? The Star Wars Pulp Trilogy Poster Set gives us a clue by revealing scenes that are familiar and different at the same time.
Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Princess Leia are plucked out of a faraway galaxy and dropped into scenes that more closely resemble a Sam Spade novel, complete with teasing images of women and overly-dramatic tag lines that are actually pulpy twists of lines from the films.
Artist Timothy Anderson transforms A New Hope into The Purloined Plans (She thought he was her only hope… but was he?), The Empire Strikes Back into The Princess and the Scoundrel (She loved him and he knew it. But would it be enough?), and Return of the Jedi becomes Damsel of the Dune Sea (To escape the clutches of a vile gangster, the Pit may be the only way out… but is it worth it?).
Fans of Star Wars and cool art will want to get their hands on these hard-boiled heroes.
