Han Solo was my first favorite Star Wars character. When I was a kid, everybody loved the hero Luke and his cool lightsaber. Me? I loved the scoundrel. Still do. Here’s an ode to the smuggler-turned-Rebel (I don’t own any of the following; all rights belong to the individual artists):
Rarely did I find any art of Han without his trusty blaster at his side.
Blaster: check. Falcon: check. Shiny boots: check. Excellent.
I love the Blade Runner feel to this one (another great Harrison Ford character I love).
Ahead of the Odds, by Raymond Swanland
This one’s a little creepy and feral, but it’s cool.
I couldn’t find an artist for this one. Anyone know?
Having a drink with his old buddy Lando. This looks to be a scene from
The Last Shot (a SW novel).
Let’s not forget young Han Solo played by Alden Ehrenreich.
Solo: A Star Wars Story was great fun.

Who’s your favorite Star Wars pilot? Here’s a list of contenders…
“He was the best starpilot in the galaxy.” Even though most of his missions ended up with crash landings.
He destroyed the first Death Star. Without his computer.
I never understood the Wedge obsession, but okay. He’s cool. Bonus points for being Obi-Wan’s uncle in real life.
He made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs. You know the story. (If you haven’t watched Solo, watch it NOW).
A trigger-happy flyboy…and the Resistance’s star pilot.
He’s the son of Solo, so…duh. Bonus points for not killing his Mom.
Wish I knew of some excellent female pilots. Maybe Rey counts? Anyone know of other great female pilots? Let me know in the comments!
