    I don't think that counts. He's a seperate character.

    It's pretty heavily implied in the comic itself that Fett may have faked his death to draw out his enemies. Still, until that's made clear, I'm inclined to think the cover is fair game.

    Dead and unlikely to return, given the reboot...

    The symbol beneath the Lucas Books logo has the book taking place during the "Rise of the Empire" era in the Expanded Universe timeline. That's 1000-0 years before Episode IV. Technically it doesn't fit the theme. But it's certainly closer than Icctrombone's Hitman cover.

    Gary said no Marvel dead so I disagree. Gary's call though.
    What have I always believed? That, on the whole, and by and large, if a person lived properly, not according to what any priests said, but according to what seemed decent and honest inside, then it would, at the end, more or less, turn out ok.

    In what sense? Tommy is deader than Uncle Ben. Nobody ever even tried to bring back an alternate version of him.

    Actually they did, Peter David brought back an alternate version.

    Well, in the Hellboy-related stories, there is actually quite a number of characters which either

    didn't get the chance to be dying within the comforts of their own body, or who
    didn't get the chance to be staying dead proper, or who
    died with still having quite the quintessential duties to yet be performing,

    such as this guy, in the photograph, which I'm sure you'll be knowing, Gary:

    Folks, no one's asking me, but I think some of you concentrate too much on "the rules". If you don't think something fits, just don't vote for it. Problem solved.

    Unless he thinks Catwoman's the one that's meant to be dead - she's taking up more of the cover than Tommy, after all.

    I mis-read the rules. I thought we were supposed to post the issue where the character died. That's why I haven't entered yet. They never actually kill anyone in the Star Wars comics; I couldn't find a cover to post. Now I get to use Chewbacca.

    It's open to interpretation...
