Overview

Star Wars: The Classic Newspaper Comics Vol. 1 by Russ Manning, Steve Gerber, Don Christensen, Russ Helm

The first of three volumes collecting the original Star Wars newspaper strip from 1979 through 1984. Includes every Sunday’s title header and “bonus” panels, meticulously restored in original color, making this the first-ever complete collection of this comics classic.

When the strip launched, Russ Manning accurately predicted that “People today can’t get enough science fiction, especially if it is original and full of creative adventure. The Star Wars characters are like Mickey Mouse. They will be loved forever.” Initially the color Sundays and black-and-white dailies told separate stories, but within six months the incomparable Russ Manning and company merged the adventures to tell brand new, epic seven-days-a-week sagas that rivaled the best science fiction comics of all time.

Volume One contains nearly 600 sequential comics from the strip’s premiere on March 11, 1979 to October 5, 1980.

Nominated for a 2018 Eisner Award for Best Archival Collection/Project - Strips.
