George Lucas surprises customers and staff at Midtown Comics in Times Square when he stopped by Monday to catch up on a little reading.

"He was only in for about 15 minutes, his driver was waiting outside," an unidentified store employee told Page Six. "Fans were pretty excited to see him and he signed a comic book. He was saying he hadn’t read any of the new Star Wars comics.”

That was quickly remedied, as the filmmaker bought copies of Marvel's Star Wars, Star Wars: Darth Vader and Star Wars: Princess Leia (seriously, he's not on a comp list?), as well as an issue of Heavy Metal.
