A look inside Star Wars: The Classic Newspaper Comics Volume 2

13th February 2018 |

IDW Publishing have released preview pages for their forthcoming Star Wars: The Classic Newspaper Comics Volume 2. This second volume, of three, reprints the classic 1980's LA Times comic strip stories but unlike previous reprints of these stories by Dark Horse Comics, which distorted the strips original format and layout, this book retains these classic comic tales in their original wide format.
Created by Al Williamson and Archie Goodwin these stories were published daily by the LA Times Syndicate and form some of the earliest these expanded universe stories. It should be noted that the preview pages supplied by IDW include Williamson and Goodwin's own proposed adaptation of A New Hope, an adaptation that was never finished, only 12 strips were completed, nor originally published. This title will be available from mid-March:

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 a 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 February 8, 1981.

Star Wars: The Classic Newspaper Comics Volume 2 by IDW Publishing is due for release on 13th March.
