Moving ‘Star Wars’ fan comic pays tribute to ‘Jedi’s’ unsung hero

When we recall the Battle of Endor from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, we usually think of Han Solo, Princess Leia, Lando Calrissian, Admiral Ackbar and those damnable Ewoks as its heroes. However, cartoonist Daniel Warren Johnson knows who really turned the tide for the Alliance, delivering an unlikely victory against the Empire: the pilot who flew his A-wing Fighter into the bridge of the Super Star Destroyer Executor.

Johnson pays tribute to that pilot, Arvel Crynyd, in a touching, wordless fan comic called “Green Leader.”

F”or some reason, this A wing pilot MOVED me,” he explains on his website. “Everything about this part of Return of the Jedi made me want to DRAW and CREATE.   This is a fan fiction comic I made in April, just because I love this scene and I love comics. I was originally going to only have this story in print with me at shows, but I want as many people to see it as possible. There’s a big part of me in these eleven pages, I hope you can see it.”
