About Star Wars: The Classic Newspaper Comics Vol. 2
This second of three volumes reprints for the first time the classic Star Wars newspaper strip in its complete format. No other edition includes each Sunday page title header and “bonus” panels in their meticulously restored original color.
The epic seven-days-a-week sagas begin with “Han Solo at Stars’ End,” based on novel by Brian Daley, adapted by Archie Goodwin and Alfredo Alcala, followed by seven complete adventures by the storied team of Archie Goodwin and artist Al Williamson. The pair had previously worked together on Creepy, Eerie, and Blazing Combat comics magazines, the Flash Gordon comic book, and 13 years on the Secret Agent Corrigan newspaper strip. They seamlessly shifted gears to take over, at George Lucas’s request, the Star Wars newspaper strip. Included are all strips from October 6, 1980 to July 25, 1982.
“In this second volume of Star Wars The Complete Classic Newspaper Comics, the universe expands as does the pleasure these stories provide. They are fun adventures that don’t require one to be well versed in the movies or other media of the franchise as Han and Luke trade off leading the stories.” –Cinema Sentries
