- Full Description
If you are like me, Russ Manning's Magnus Robot Fighter is a favorite series, right up there with Adam Strange. Here Manning does it again, with superlative artwork and wonderful science fiction, space ships, and worlds-spanning adventure in the same style. And you also get Al Williamson doing what HE'S best at, Flash-Gordon-style sci-fi. It doesn't get much better than this. Includes previously unpublished Sunday pages, plus newspaper strips re-formatted to comic book form and in full color.
Beginning in 1979, fans got a daily dose of a galaxy far, far away in their newspapers -- now, with this volume, you can savor those stories without the 24-hour wait! C-3PO chronicles the adventures of the Rebel heroes! Luke takes his chances on a gambler's world! A sojourn on Tatooine is anything but peaceful! Princess Leia is put to work as an Imperial servant! Han Solo makes another Kessel Run! Han and Chewie get more than they bargained for on a job! And Boba Fett makes his print debut!
New stories that go far beyond the original films, originally compiled into comic book series by Marvel, from dailly strips published from March 11 to September 9, 1979, and Sunday pages from August 11 to October 5, 1980."The Old Republic" stories take place millennia before Episode 1, as does "Rise of the Sith." Then "The Clone Wars" takes place between Episodes II and III."The Empire" takes place between Episodes III and IV...and so forth. You get the idea, this is all original material not retelling the stories we already know from the films.
Dave Stevens even has some artwork here, inking Al Williamson's artwork!!
