Star Wars #39 - Al Williamson cover reprint & reprint

Star Wars v1 #39, 1980 - First published in Marvel Super Special #16, this series begins reprinting the comic book adaptation of The Empire Strikes Back. This specific issue reprints the first chapter and two illustrations to serve as the cover and opening splash. Printed on regular newsprint, Al Williamson's artwork is muted as a result. His drawings maintain their sophistication despite the more somber colors. The cover is reprinted pin-up from the earlier magazine. See today's posts or more Williamson or Star Wars issues.
