The first of three volumes that present, for the first time ever, 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 black and white 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. * The classic strip collected in its entirety in its original format for the first time!show more

Review quote

"This volume - and this whole series - is not to be missed by Star Wars fans, science fiction comic strip enthusiasts, or those who cherish good storytelling. When Dark Horse had the Star Wars license, the strips...were reprinted in comic book form, but this series restores them to the full comic strip formats. [Russ Manning's] clean line work, impeccable storytelling, and his understanding of the franchise...made for memorable comic strips." --Scoop "IDW continue their trend of producing comic collections that feel like a luxury to own, and are a rich tapestry of Star Wars history and joy to hold in any collection - I can't recommend picking up this collection enough." --Jedinewsshow more
