GEORGE LUCAS Buys Heavy Metal Magazine (at comic shop)



We were thrilled to hear the news that gentleman George Lucas strolled into Midtown Comics in Times Square this week and purchased not only a few of the new “Star Wars” comics, but also a classic issue of our legendary magazine. Obviously George has better taste than a lot of people criticize him for!

A staff member at Midtown Comics reported, “He came in and was browsing the store, looking at the ‘Star Wars’ stuff. He was only in for about 15 minutes, his driver was waiting outside. Fans were pretty excited to see him and he signed a comic book. He was saying he hadn’t read any of the new ‘Star Wars’ comics.”

Before departing for a galaxy far, far away, the divine director picked up three recent Marvel “Star Wars” comic books featuring Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, and Princess Leia as well as that aforementioned copy of HEAVY METAL! We’re tickled pink to be in such esteemed company and to discover that Mr. Lucas is a reader – and hey, George… if you’re looking for a new movie project…
