Exploring the 20-year stretch of Star Wars history between Episode III and Episode IV, Star Wars Rebels is a hit Disney XD animated series. The all-new Cinestory Comic includes three episodes of adventure in comic-style screen captures from season one.

Imperial oppression on Lothal grows stronger and the rebels must seek out new allies and resources to sustain their fight against the evil Empire. The crew of the Ghost joins forces with another rebel cell: ex-clone troopers who fought in the Clone Wars. As the rebels grow in number, so will their enemies.

STAR WARS: THE CLASSIC NEWSPAPER COMICS Vol. 2

hardcover

publisher info:

Library of American Comics (imprint of IDW Publishing)

/ Marvel Worldwide

hardcover (296 pages)

ISBN 978-1-68405-053-6
$ 49.99

solicitation copy:

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 a 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 February 8, 1981

[NOTE: this last date is not correct, as that is the end-date of the publication of HAN SOLO AT STARS’ END. See below for all adventures included in this volume – Eddie].

reprints the following newspaper strips:
STAR WARS: HAN SOLO AT STARS’ END

October 6, 1980 – February 8, 1981 (128 weeklies, black & white / 18 Sundays, color)
