Jaxxon is part Disney part Marvel and ALL Star Wars Expanded Universe. For paretns looking to get their kids into reading Jaxxon is a tremendous early cross over, he first graced the pages of books after the original trilogy and like Han Solo and Chewbacca, he's a smuggler. I'll break down the connection's for you here:
- Disney: Jaxxon is drawn like a "smuggler" bugs bunny, but the name is play on some 1940's Disney cartoons where Bugs Bunny was referred to as "Jacks" by his comic adversaries
- Marvel: Marvel Comics first picked up the character in the 60s and did a space crime fighter on him which maybe some cross-over style Bucky O'Hare for those who are familiar.
- Star Wars: Jaxxon is the subject of a series of Novels that are ideal for ages 10-15 but good for all ages about Jaxxon the smuggler who has adventures with Luke Skywalker and Han Solo both prior to and after a new hope.
Jaxxon is a male Lepi from a "small" family of 13 based on Cochelle Prime. Stuck for money on repairs Han Solo is kind enough to give the hard on his luck Jaxxon a smuggling job. Late he hooks up with Foxtrain and from there its a series of adventures across the outer rim which doesn't exactly get much publication anywhere in Star Wars.
