Search for 'Han Solo' on Amazon
Many events of Han Solo's life, such as his early childhood and his stint as Luke's best man have really only been explored in comics. But some key notions about the man would be missed to the reader whose only exposure is through the films and comics. In one of the most important of these, The Courtship of Princess Leia, C-3P0 reveals that, in fact, Han Solo is the direct descendant of royalty—Berethon e Solo, King of Corellia about 300 years prior to Episode IV—and therefore "eligible" to marry Leia.
At right we see a young Han Solo (in shadow), as portrayed in Star Wars (Marvel) #100.
Beneath is one of the more "definitive" Dave Dorman renditions, taken from the one Han Solo cover that has probably sold the most number of copies in the Dark Horse era, Star Wars: Dark Empire #4. Back Issue (2003)
