Vi­sions Of The Mind’s Eye

Splin­ter – the comic book

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Time Machine -

In 1995 Splin­ter Of The

Mind’s Eye was adapted as a four-part comic book se­ries by Dark Horse Comics, which brought the al­ter­na­tive se­quel to vivid life. Although gen­er­ally faith­ful to Foster’s orig­i­nal novel, there were some mi­nor al­ter­na­tions made. A scene where Leia had orig­i­nally seen the Stormtroop­ers car­ry­ing their hel­mets was al­tered – at the in­sis­tence of Lu­cas­film – to de­pict them wear­ing them. Could their sub­se­quent clone ori­gins de­picted in the movie pre­quels be the rea­son for abruptly con­ceal­ing their ap­pear­ance?
