'STAR WARS' AT 40: 'ANGRY MOSQUITOS'!
The small but determined force of Rebel X-wings close-in on the goliath that is the Death Star space station in this superb art by Howard Chaykin for the original STAR WARS Marvel comic series adaptation (issue 6). The X-wings are still referred to as Blue Squadron, with the change to Red happening whilst the comic adaptation was presumably already too far gone into production to make corrections.
Unlike the film version's fifteen minutes, the Death Star firing range point in the comics was thirty.
