Star Wars #50 - Al Williamson art, Walt Simonson art & cover


Star Wars v1 #50, 1981 - Commemorating the fiftieth issue, this the first super-sized comic of the series. Like his previous Star Wars works, Al Williamson delivers some his best pages of the period. His first 15 pages (which he pencils and inks) are breathtakingly good, but his remaining 16 pages (his pencils, Tom Palmer inks) are less impressive. Walt Simonson steps in to pencil the last 8 pages and provides the cover. His own unique approach is sadly, mostly buried underneath the inks. Interestingly, Williamson appears to have inked the final two pages. This is number 6 of 7 Star Wars issues with Williamson art and/or covers (not including reprints) and This is number 4 of 18 Star Wars issues with Simonson art and/or covers.
