    It’s hard for me to rate this book objectively.The comic strip hit the newspapers between Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back. As indicated in the foreword, at that time, the only other Star Wars material available were three tie-in novels: Alan Dean Foster’s Splinter of the Mind’s Eye and the first two of Brian Daley’s original Han Solo trilogy. It’s probably hard for modern fans to imagine a world where there were so few Star Wars novels available, and the great empty canvas of the [...]

    I have no nostalgia when it comes to these strips, which were originally published in newspapers between Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back. I was around 5 years old, and not reading many newspapersSo looking objectively, three stars is probably generous, because these stories are kind of goofy. And the format works against our ability to read them as a whole. In the weekday strips, they had 2-3 panels to work with, but one of those panels was usually spent recapping what happened the day bef [...]

    The compelling story of Star Wars in 1977 left fans wanting more. Unlike now, where we can own a copy of a much-loved film and watch any time we want, back in the late 1970s, Beta and VHS formats were still a few years from being an available commodity. There were a handful of novels that were released at the time, and Marvel was putting out a monthly comic book series, but the fans’ interest was not sated. They were clamoring for more content. Given that the sequel, The Empire Strikes Back, w [...]

    A long time ago in a galaxy far, far awayIt is a time of much celebration. STAR WARS (not "Episode IV", not "A New Hope") has exploded across movie screens everywhere and changed the film and cultural landscapes forever. It hasn't left theaters since May 1977. In 1979, with The Empire Strikes Back well over a year away, the fans are clambering for something to tide them over. Monthly comics from Marvel are spread out, and only Splinter of the Mind's Eye and the novelization of Star Wars fill the [...]

    Okay, so remember, 3 stars means "I liked it."And I liked this. It was okay. There are new stories with the main characters from A New Hope, and they are reasonably entertaining. Star Wars loses some of its scope in newspaper comic form. A Star Destroyer which is awesome on the big screen, and slightly less so on your home television, is just not impressive in a newspaper comic format. Likewise a light saber fight or a blaster duel doesn't feel as thrilling when told three panels at a time (and [...]

    It's a passable effort. Star Wars is too vast a story to be limited to a four-panel daily strip. Bought it mainly for the historical aspect of it.

    Brilliant work. The stories are a bit unsophisticated, but Russ Manning's brilliant illustration more than makes up for it.
