Star Wars: The Classic Newspaper Comics, Vol. 1 - Convention Variant Dustjacket



In stock



Russ Manning, of Tarzan and Magnus fame, was George Lucas' first choice to helm the Star Wars comic strip. Out of print. This has the Convention Variant Dustjacket with C-3PO and R2-D2. The cover underneath has the standard Darth Vader cover.

From the publisher:

Written and illustrated by Russ Manning, Alfredo Alcala, and others.

The first of three volumes that reprint for the first time the classic Star Wars newspaper strip from 1979-1984 in its complete format -- including each Sunday title header and "bonus" panels in their meticulously restored original color. Initially the color Sundays and B&W dailies told separate stories, but within six months the incomparable Russ Manning merged the adventures to tell brand new epic seven-days-a-week sagas that rivaled the best science fiction comics of all time. Volume One contains 575 sequential comic strips from the strip's premiere on March 11, 1979 to October 5, 1980.

Edited & Designed by Dean Mullaney. Introductions by Rich Handley and Henry G. Frank III.
