Notes: The Bold and the Brave was a series of DC Comics that originally ran from 1955 to 1983, and since then, it has been brought back several times.  The Justice League made its debut in issue no. 28 in March of 1960.  No. 29, published in May, 1960, is the issue seen here.  It features Justice League members Aquaman, Batman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter (who?), Superman and Wonder Woman.  The villain is named Xotar, aka Weapons Master, an highly intelligent supervillain from the year 11,960.  I'm guessing that he is the guy inside the yellow robot thing.

Notes: This comic, the fourth in a mini-series of four, was originally titled The Vader Job.  I don't know about you, but that sounds rather corny to me.  I think they made a good decision changing it to Enemy of the Empire.  It was published on April 28, 1999 by Dark Horse comics.  In this series, Darth Vader hires Boba Fett to track down Abal Karda, who was last seen in possession of a kneedhide casket.  Vader also hired three assassins to kill Boba Fett once he found the casket.  Apparently the casket contains the head of Queen Selestrine of the Icarii, who can foretell the future.  Yes, even though she is only a head, she can still foretell the future.  As you can see here, Boba Fett and Darth Vader end up fighting over her.
