Description

I've had this for a while, and I finally made a scan when it was published in the new Star Wars Comics book from Lucasfilm. Regardless, this cover represents one of my earliest Star Wars memories, and as a piece of comic art, it is one of the favorites in my collection.

This is so great. Original art collectors will be jealous for decades. I am. Good one, Dave.

As I saw the first issue of the comic before the movie came out, this is indeed my earliest Star Wars memory. It was a great part of the whole Star Wars experience as a kid. I am so glad to know this exists and is in good hands.

Another jewel from your collection, which is jaw-dropping, congrats!! I wonder if George Lucas tried to buy it, since I think that he collects artwork from the adaptations of his movies. I couldn't avoid to notice that there were some changes in the published cover: http://tinyurl.com/dxk2svz

Star Wars + Comics? That is like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup commercial. Two great tastes that taste great together. The museum gets another artifact. Bravo!

Gosh, I also remember running to the shops for my SW Weekly 1 and assembling my "X-Fighter". Altho I was perplexed that Luke didn't look like Mark Hamill. What a blast from the past.

Congratulations on another mega-buck piece in the collection !!!!
You really do need to open a museum my friend. You cannot continue this obsession to hoard the comic book industry's most treasured artwork like Uncle Scrooge, let us peasants feast our eyes on these jewells !!!!!

Holy cow, I clicked on a link to this (didn't know where the link was taking me, other than it was Star Wars related) and as soon as my brain registered what I was viewing, the resulting shock made it feel as if I got punched in the face. Absolutely historic piece. Congrats!

For me, this is as memorable as any Star Wars imagery, which is quite an accomplishment for the artists given how many times I sat through the actual movie and given how much merchandising there was! Chaykin did a standout job on this series and Palmer is just fantastic

I feel like I am 8 years old again and everything in my life was Star Wars related. Great time to post on the release of the new movie which will hopefully make up for the previous 3 disasters.
