Star Wars 8 is the eighth issue of the Legends comic book series Star Wars. It was written by Roy Thomas and Howard Chaykin, with art by Chaykin and Tom Palmer, and it was first published by Marvel Comics on November 8, 1977. It features the story "Eight for Aduba-3," which introduces Han Solo and Chewbacca to an array of new characters, including Jaxxon, Amaiza Foxtrain, and the Cloud-Riders.
Han Solo and Chewbacca are hired by Ramiz, a moisture farmer on Aduba-3, to protect his village from a band of local thugs known as the Cloud-Riders, led by Serji-X Arrogantus. Han and Chewbacca hire six misfit spacers to help them with the task, including Don-Wan Kihotay, an old man who thinks he is a Jedi Knight, and Jaxxon, a rabbit-like Lepi with a mean disposition. Serji-X tries to convince Han to forget about his mission to protect the peasants and even offers him compensation, but Han declines.
