"My name is Ramiz, and I was selected to come here with the others to find... I do not know quite how to say it... a champion... a protector, so to speak!"
―Ramiz[src]

Star Wars 8: Eight for Aduba-3 is the eighth issue in Marvel's Star Wars series of comics, and the second original Star Wars comic story.

Plot summaryEdit

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 creature 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.

Meanwhile, on Yavin 4, Luke Skywalker, C-3PO and R2-D2 leave in a scout ship to search for a location for the new Rebel Alliance base.

DevelopmentEdit

Roy Thomas was the writer/editor on this issue. Howard Chaykin was the artist, Tom Palmer was the embellisher/colorist, and Archie Goodwin was the consulting editor on this issue.

The Star Words letters column mentions that between the three editions of the Star Wars comic adaptation in print at the time (the regular Marvel Star Wars series, the Marvel Special Edition Featuring Star Wars 1 and 2, and The Marvel Comics Illustrated Version of Star Wars) there were more than two million copies of the comics version of the story in print.

The storyline owes much to the Akira Kurosawa epic The Seven Samurai and its Hollywood western remake The Magnificent Seven.
