From November 1977: The US paperback reprint of Marvel's STAR WARS movie adaptation.
Once Marvel realized they had a sell-out hit on their hands (surprise!), they scrambled to get the six-issue adaptation back into print in as many formats as possible. The early issues of the regular comic (which Marvel snagged royalty-free, because Lucas and Fox were desperate for the exposure) went back to press for a rare second printing and, in addition to this paperback, Marvel also supersized with two (and latterly a third) treasury editions.
Unlike some of Marvel's other comics-to-paperback transfers, this one has black and white interiors. The paperback editions of the sequels were upgraded to colour.
