The Marvel Comics Illustrated Version of Star Wars - 1977

Marvel partnered with several different paperback publishers in the 70s and 80s to issue these digest-sized collections. With Star Wars being the biggest thing around, it only made sense that they collected their movie adaptation in every format possible--big and small.

This b/w book reprints Star Wars #s 1-6 by Roy Thomas, Howard Chaykin, Steve Leialoha, and others, with an introduction by (of course) Stan Lee. May the Force be with you!

Love Leia's pink tights!

Is it wrong I like the "rough" Star Wars of the early days, pre-style guides, and everyone slavishly swiping photo references?
