A long time ago, in a decade that was far, far out there, moviedom's most beloved characters made the transition from silver screen to printed page in a comic-book series that was truly out of this world. Each new issue of Marvel's Star Wars comic-book series that launched in 1977 was stranger and crazier than the next. Where else could you find the friendship between Luke ...more

These comics are great fun and really don't conflict too badly with established canon, either of them. this book brings you right up to just before the empire strikes back.
the art style isn't anything fantastic, but I'd adequate for helping to tell the story.

It has been ages since I read this and sadly, have since gotten rid of it. I went through a clean out time of my graphics novels and have regretted it ever since.

What I do remember is at first being mildly appalled at the...less than stellar story lines and then finally realizing the humor and nostalgia factor these comics carry. Are they beyond absurd? Oh my, yes! But they are also awfully fun to read and if you are a Star Wars fan, I would strongly urge you to give them a try. I regret giving
i used to own around 50 of the original issues but i sold them. then i found this collection and regretted selling them. i really like carmine infantino's art on these. it's so weird. also the michael golden one at the end is great.

I enjoyed this immensely, not having read any of it before; like a fragment of childhood, saved for me to experience as an adult.
Worth reading for Star Wars fans.
