Some old Marvel Star Wars comics covers #MayThe4thBeWithYou

Happy Star Wars Day! May the fourth be with you!

Here are a couple of old Star Wars comic book covers, from Marvel’s first run with the franchise. I will be writing more details about some of these issues in future posts.

IMG_0006Star Wars, vol. 1, no. 2 (1977) retells the story of Ben and Luke in Mos Eisley’s tavern. This action on the cover is exactly how it happened, right?


Star Wars, vol. 1, no. 68 (1983) takes place between Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, with the crew trying to find Boba Fett and the carbonite-captive Han Solo.

Just a thought … Star Wars: The Force Awakens is probably not going to be based on this storyline following Return of the Jedi, from Star Wars, vol. 1, no. 88 (1984).
