Darth Vader, the problematic fanzine fave of 1977

quote [ Released after three years of fans interpreting the characters in their own way, The Empire Strikes Back was contentious among some fans... Some, like Kirkland, felt that their stories had progressed far enough that they could ignore Empire and continue in their own way. Still others took the events of the movie and ran with them. ]

Interesting article on early Star Wars fandom. I saw a lot of similarities between how people back then reacted to Darth Vader being Luke's father to how people reacted more recently to Luke being a tired old hermit. You spend so much time building up your own canon that you set yourself up for disappointment no matter what.
