Found this by accident and sounds like it might be fun.  Unfortunately, the guys site is down: http://www.starwarsmarvel.com/ but promises to be relaunching soon.

In the meantime you can check out his Facebook page.  He plans on having podcast as well as archives of the comics.

I loved these as a kid and wonder if they would be as good now that I'm "all grown up".

Well, Dark Horse is re-releasing them in trades.  They seem a little hokey, but I can say that about all 80s comics.

I have them, and they are a hard read for me for one reason. One name.

Carmen Infantino.

I have always ... I have never been a fan of his work. He just kills any story for me. Books I know I would have enjoyed if a different artist was on the book (Dial H for H.E.R.O - Flash) just become unreadable.

His sharp ass noses.
His total lack of facial perspective.
His "up the nose" camera angles (which only Gil Kane can pull off well).
His stiff, angular bodies.

Bah.

Every now and then I get drunk enough to read a few, and while they are not the greatest for "holding up to time", you can deal with it because ... well ... it is Star Wars.
