Product Description

Star Wars: The Classic Newspaper Comics: Volume 2 Hardcover

This second of three volumes reprints for the first time the classic Star Wars newspaper strip in its complete format. No other edition includes each Sunday page title header and “bonus” panels in their meticulously restored original color.

The epic seven-days-a-week sagas begin with "Han Solo at Stars' End,” based on novel by Brian Daley, adapted by Archie Goodwin and Alfredo Alcala, followed by seven complete adventures by the storied team of Archie Goodwin and artist Al Williamson. The pair had previously worked together on Creepy, Eerie, and Blazing Combat comics magazines, the Flash Gordon comic book, and 13 years on the Secret Agent Corrigan newspaper strip. They seamlessly shifted gears to take over, at George Lucas’s request, the Star Wars newspaper strip. Included are all strips from October 6, 1980 to July 25, 1982.

About the Author
Archie Goodwin was born in Kansas City, Missouri, in 1937. In 1964, he went to work for Warren Publishing, where he became the head scriptwriter and eventually rose to the position of Editor-in-Chief. From the late 1960s until the late 1980s Goodwin moved back and forth between Marvel, DC Comics, and Warren, with occasional sojourns elsewhere. He helmed the launch of Epic Illustrated and was the Editor-in-Chief at Marvel from 1976 until 1978. He was inducted into the Eisner Hall of Fame in 1998.

Al Williamson was born in New York City in 1931 and raised in Bogota, Colombia. After returning to New York, he studied at the Cartoonists and Illustrators School (later to become the School of Visual Arts), and in 1948, at the tender age of seventeen, embarked on a career in comics. He worked for several publishers, most notably EC Comics, the premier publisher of the early-to-mid-1950s. In 1966, Williamson realized a lifelong dream when he was chosen to illustrate a comic book version of Alex Raymond’s Flash Gordon. In the mid-1980s he would go on to win numerous Harvey and Eisner Awards.
