Retro Dark Horse: Star Wars 30th Anniversary Collection Volume 8: Splinter of the Mind's Eye

Solo: A Star Wars Story movie debuts next month and it contains quite a few treats for longtime fans of the franchise.  One of the cooler inclusions is the planet Mimban, first introduced in Del Rey's Splinter of the Mind's Eye novel written by Alan Dean Foster from 1978.  This book follows the exploits of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, C-3PO, and R2-D2 on the inhospitable swamp world.  In the novel, Mimban is the location of an Imperial mining town and home to the subterranean humanoid race the Coway.

Dark Horse published a 4-part mini-series adaptation of the Splinter of the Mind's Eye novel which was reprinted in the eighth volume of the Star Wars 30th Anniversary Collection.  This hardcover retailed for $19.95 and features the standard cover with a matte black background with the text in silver.  The cover art is a portion of the artwork use for the trade paperback.
