I think I had already shared a similar image of a jockey-like helmet worn by a comic character, but hadn't done much research on the story. This one from here first appeared in the SANDMAN: Master of Dreams
comic from DC
in 1989. That makes it impossible for it to have been influenced by the prequels, but on the other hand there is ALIEN
from 1979. 🤔
Anyway, check the description below.
