The concluding volume that reprints for the first time the classic Star Wars newspaper strip in its complete format. Every Sunday page in full color, complete with the never-before-collected title header and "bonus" panels.

"The Power Gem," "Iceworld," It's a Trap," Race for Survival," The Paradise Detour," "A New Beginning," "Doom Mission," "Showdown," and "The Final Trap."

The complete newspaper strips from July 26, 1982 to March 11, 1984.

Introduction by Rich Handley discusses the entire five year run and Goodwin's "richer, even more expansive" work, introducing new heroes, villains, and characters in between. For instance, he bridges the films IV and V by incorporating characters from the latter, such as Jabba and the bounty hunters, into the period between. And extended the continuity beyond Episode V. "Ultimately, the series went out on a strong note, with its 27 storylines providing endless entertainment and adding dozens of memorable new characters to the then-fledgling mythos...And they did so spectacularly."
