The droid search begins

Artist George Folz loves "Star Wars." Deeply. And he shows his love by illustrating his favorite characters and moments scene by scene in an original daily "Star Wars" comic that he shares on Twitter.

Whether it's clueless Stormtroopers searching for C-3PO and R2-D2 or Jabba the Hutt trying to impress Slave Leia, Folz has every moment covered. Here are some of our favorites panels that he's posted since the beginning of the year, when he started his project.

These poor Stormtroopers have no idea how long they'll be looking for those pesky droids, R2-D2 and C-3PO.

This illustration reminds us how brave Princess Leia is to stand up to Darth Vader.

"I wanted to do something that would strengthen my artistic muscles while showing love for something that's brought me a lot of joy," artist George Folz told CNET's Crave blog of his daily comic.

Skywalker versus Skywalker

In this dramatic panel by artist George Folz, Luke Skywalker faces off against his father Darth Vader in an epic lightsaber battle.

Artist George Folz does the line work for each comic panel by hand with a red, green or pink pencil. He then inks over those lines with a water brush and uses Photoshop for coloring and toning.

Jabba puts on the charm

It's hard to decide who to feel more sorry for in this comic panel: Jabba the Hutt trying to impress Princess Leia, or Leia, who looks less than thrilled to be chained to him.
