    You could’ve made the obvious joke by including one of Vader’s many classic facial expressions

    Also, [panel #5](https://comicnewbies.files.wordpress.com/2015/06/darth-vader-learns-luke-is-his-son-5.jpg?w=550&h=835) here is quite obviously taken from RotJ, when Luke is wailing on Vader in the Emperor’s throne room.

    Their clones are very impressive. They must be very proud.

    Marvel really needs to ditch this artist. I don’t care if they’re good for deadlines, this is just lazy effort all around.

    [Also can you spot the lego Snowspeeder?](http://i.imgur.com/OoRlK8E.jpg) Here’s a [reference to help spot it](http://lego.brickinstructions.com/07000/7130/045.jpg) (different ‘artist’ I believe, but it’s an example of how lazy Marvel is.)

    As funny as this is, this is also stupid. Why does Marvel put artists like these on Star Wars?!?!!?

    Let’s also not forget that time they used a photo of [Lucius Malfoy](http://www.hp-lexicon.org/images/film/cs/lucius-cs.jpg) for [Tyber Zann.](https://media.anakinworld.com/uploads/entries/page_maxi/personnage-tyber-zann-13026.jpg)

    I mean, I know that’s not exactly the same thing, but I did do a double take the first time I saw it, lol.

    I actually hate it when they do this. I would much more prefer an original cartoony style than a more realistic style that basically just copies frames from the movies.

    I enjoy the Star Wars comics. But whenever I see any panel that I know has been lifted from the films, I have a lesser opinion of the artist.

    I used to have a few Star Wars comics from the 80’s about after the films. The only thing that sticks out to me was Leia and Han arguing still at each others’ throats even while they were lovers. It totally makes sense why they didn’t stay together, and why Kylo has such anger problems,

    Quite a few of those are iconic in the films though. I didn’t see them that many times but recognized most of the faces and the lines that went along with them.

    While watching the trailer for TLJ yesterday, I so wanted to see them troll us with an anthro frog person character. The reference would have been worth all the hate.

    Comics in general do this quite a bit, often using older comics as the base template. Reusing scenes or poses, just changing the suit to the relevant superhero.

    ITT people who don’t know how the comic industry is run. I really don’t see why it’s such a big deal that they use facial expressions… They do this because the style for these comics is ultra realistic.

    When they tried to do something different with the Princes Leia series, they got lambasted for it because “It didn’t even look like her”

    So what is it, guys? Do you want them to do realistic, which takes more time and effort, or stylized?
