STAR WARS AT 35: KRIEG DER STERNE!
The basic but enjoyable cover of the first MARVEL comics issue of the 1978 German STAR WARS comic KRIEG DER STERNE. Strangely, Luke Skywalker only appears in the top corner (like in the US MARVEL comics), whilst the Millennium Falcon (looking a lot like the one John Berkey drew for his famous Death Star space battle poster, accompanying the 1977 John Williams FOX album) seems to be firing on a Rebel X-wing.
Ah, those were the fun old days, before established continuity engulfed everything!
With thanks to the COMIC HUNTERS website for the image.
