Tom Scioli revisits theStar Wars Ride of 1987

The past is a foreign country, even more so when viewed through the filter of youth. Before every corner of the the Star Wars universe was explored, nearly anything was possible. This is evident in the vaguely remembered Star Wars Ride housed on the Wildwood Boardwalk of NJ back in 1981.

Renowned artist Tom Scioli (Gødland, American Barbarian, Transformers Vs. GI Joe) has created a new comic that takes readers back to a different age when Star Wars, Star Trek and Planet of the Apes were gloriously mashed together.

Here is a short video upload of Super 8 footage from 1974 showing the Star Trek ride and some Planet of the Apes antics.

  1. I was so suprised to see the Wildwood Star Wars ride Posted! But the comic you made is no longer available. Do you still have it? I’d like to know because my friends were in costume that summer. I have some pics I found you might like to see. Thanks!
