In his best EC comics style, Al Williamson brings his superlative imagination and rendering to the Star Wars world. A perfect match of artist and material, as good as anything Al ever did on his dream job, Flash Gordon. Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO and R2-D2 continue to take the fight to the Empire, but it's a dangerous galaxy out there! As Luke is enslaved by the Serpent Masters, Doctor Arakkus prepares a death trap, and the rebels' base is besieged! There are dangers in the depths of Aquaris, and an ancient threat lurking in the heart of Yavin's moon!

But who is that claiming to be Ben Kenobi?! As the Rebel Alliance prepares to relocate to the ice planet of Hoth, Luke gears up for a climactic showdown with Darth Vader and Han Solo faces down a rogues' gallery of bounty hunters including the mysterious Boba Fett!

And who is writing this? None other than Archie Goodwin, the legendary best-ever writer and and editor in the first issues of CreepyEerie, and the beloved Marvel Comics editor on Epic Magazine, Jack Kirby's 1970s material, and more.

And joining them are inkers Brent Anderson (Uncanny X-Men) and Thomas Yeates (Zorro, Prince Valiant).

Bonus commentary and art by Mark Schultz, Al Williamson himself, an entire page of Afterword, Bret Blevins, Matt Hollingworth.

Collects Classic Star Wars #5-20, material from Classic Star Wars #4. Although this is credited to the comics series of 1992-94, the original source for these was the syndicated newspaper strip run. Marvel adapted them into their popular comic book series and that's the format you'll find here.
