- "Without the shaman to call the shots, that behemoth's startin' to get really mad! And this time I don't think it's gonna be so particular about who it stomps!"
Star Wars 10: Behemoth from the World Below is the tenth issue in Marvel's Star Wars series of comics.
Plot summary[edit | edit source]
The Old One has summoned the Behemoth, a giant reptilian monster, to defend the village Onacra from the villainous Cloud-Riders. Serji-X Arrogantus, the leader of the Cloud-Riders, realizes that he and his men have no chance against the beast, and he also realizes that the giant is being controlled by the old shaman. He attacks the Old One, but the Behemoth reacts in time to kill Serji-X. However, the shaman is killed as well, causing the monster to run amok. With the rest of the Star-Hoppers of Aduba-3 running for cover, would-be Jedi Knight Don-Wan Kihotay tries to stop the great beast on his own. Hedji tries to help him, but is easily killed by the monster. Then Han Solo rushes to help Kihotay, and uses the man's lightsaber to destroy the Behemoth, saving the village.
Development[edit | edit source]
Roy Thomas was the editor/co-plotter for this issue. Donald F. Glut wrote the script for this issue. Howard Chaykin was the artist/co-plotter for this issue. Tom Palmer was the co-artist/embellisher on this issue. Alan Kupperberg did the layouts, John Costanza was the letterer, and Françoise Mouly was the colorist on this issue.
This issue's Star Words letters page has writer Roy Thomas announce that he and penciller Howard Chaykin will be leaving the series and that Archie Goodwin and Carmine Infantino will be taking over. The reason for Chaykin was that he wanted to do other types of art, the reason for Thomas was "... a bit more complicated and personal."
