With the end of the Star Wars saga on the horizon, now’s as good a time to look back to the very beginning as any and Marvel honour that legacy by releasing 6 reprints of classic issues.

The first is the Star Wars #1 Facsimile Edition, reprinting in its entirety (adverts included) the original first issue of Star Wars, cover dated July 1977 but much like the Del Rey novelisation was release a few weeks before the film itself.

Months before the first Star Wars movie had even arrived in theaters, Marvel Comics’ STAR WARS #1 hit the stands, and introduced eager readers to a galaxy far, far away! Its cover asked: “Luke Skywalker: Will he save the galaxy or destroy it?” – and inside, readers eager to know the answer joined Luke on the first, fateful steps of his epic journey from the deserts of Tatooine to the very heart of the Rebellion! 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.
