This opening chapter of Marvel’s adaptation of George Lucas’ cinematic masterpiece features the debuts of some of the most beloved characters in cinematic history – including Princess Leia, R2-D2,

C-3PO, and of course, the ruthless enforcer of the Galactic Empire, Darth Vader! It’s one of the all-time great Marvel comic books, boldly re-presented in its original form, ads and all! Reprinting STAR WARS (1977) #1.
