Tag & Bink Are Dead 1 was the first issue in the Tag & Bink Are Dead series of comics, released October 3, 2001.

Publisher's summaryEdit

Tag Greenley and Bink Otauna are Rebel officers fighting against Emperor Palpatine and his army -- until one fateful day, aboard a freighter carrying Princess Leia and the stolen plans for the Death Star, their lives change forever. During an attack on the freighter, Tag and Bink choose life over death, and "borrow" the armor off a pair of deceased stormtroopers to avoid being killed. Their new disguises get them off the freighter alive and send them off on an adventure neither of them could have predicted! Tag & Bink Are Dead is written by Kevin Rubio (creator of the internet film sensation TROOPS and the hilarious short stories "A Death Star Is Born" and "Force Fiction" from Star Wars Tales) and illustrated by the masterful Lucas Marangon.

Opening crawlEdit

Episode IV.1
Tag and Bink Are Dead
It is a period of great 
strife and turmoil at 
With Episode II still months away, 
editors struggle to meet the 
demand for new 
STAR WARS comics, 
brought on by a 
ravenous and unforgiving fan base.

Dark Horse Editor DAVE LAND, 
in a move that he now regrets, 
commissions the ever late, 
always procrastinating KEVIN RUBIO 
to concoct a two part comedic story about 
two young Rebel officers set during 
the time of Episode IV.

Even now as you read this, 
Kevin struggles to meet the 
deadline for the next book, 
and artist LUCAS MARANGON is 
slowly going insane because of the 
impossible visuals 
Kevin has asked for in the 
limited time that is left to draw the book. 
Turn the page and let the 
hilarious adventures commence…



Behind the scenesEdit

The title of the story is a reference to the play, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead.

The green creature with the hands and tongue on the first panel is from various cover art to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. On the same panel, Devastator's bumper sticker is possibly a reference to Spaceballs.

The 'night' side of the Death Star I is lit up in the pattern of a chess knight, the logo of Dark Horse. A Bob's Big Boy also appears within the Death Star.
