Supercomix Star Wars

This is Supercomix Star Wars, published by Republican Press in 1977, who had started publishing Marvel Comics reprints in 1976.

This reprint has a few unique features:
R1,50 was a lot of pocket money in 1977!
Square bound 116 pages, it feels like a trade-paperback/graphic novel
It reprints the full film-adaptation story from Marvel Comics' Star Wars 1-6 (1977)

  1. Darn it George! Your supposed to let me know when stuff like this pops up! LOL Or maybe I need to make sure I am subscribed to your blog. Amazing.... This book really makes us foreign Star Wars collectors drop a load in our pants. Hey, can we at FCC use this scan for our database? Thanks....
