Marvel Star Wars #2

Cover to Marvel's 1977 Star Wars #2
So, hey maybe I can put more effort into this and add a more balanced selection of scans than I did last time.
6 pages out of an 18 page story, under the cut.
Presenting... STAR WARS #2 (1977) )

Marvel Star Wars #1

Seeing the recent re-acquirement of the Star Wars comics license by Marvel, let us look back at their first go at making Star Wars a thing. (Also, this is my first post here, let me know if I did anything wrong!)

Star Wars #1 - More variant covers than pages! :)

Warning: Contains more images than I've ever included in a single post before!

Question - What do Alex Ross, Alex Maleev, Sara Pichelli, Alan Davis, Pascal Campion, Pasqual Ferry, Joe Quinones, Simone Bianchi, Dave Dorman, Stan Sakai, Mike McKone, Dale Keown, Stephanie Hans, David Peterson, Mike Mayhew, Mike Deodato, Mark Brooks, John Tyler Christopher, Greg Land, John Cassady, Jenny Frison, Amanda Conner, Skottie Young and Bob McLeod have in common THIS WEEK?

Answer - They ALL have variant covers of Star Wars #1 coming out... and that's not even all of them!

The release of Star Wars #1 from Marvel Comics this week is perhaps the publishing coup of the year, and you certainly can't say that Marvel and Disney and Lucasfilm haven't gone all out with the covers!

This is the main release cover...



Which is fine, and classic, and apporpriate and all///

but that's not even scraping the surface )

Ms. Marvel's guest appearance in S.H.I.E.L.D.



In the latest issue, one of the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. went undercover at Coles Academic High School as substitute teacher Ms. Steranko. Naturally, since there were shenanigans afoot at her school (and she's on the cover), Kamala showed up.

She and agent Coulson have a geek-off )

Writer: Mark Waid
Artist: Humberto Ramos
Cover artist: Julian Totino Tedesco

Who's next on the Grim Reaper's list?

Looks like Marvel is keeping up their promise to kill off a character every quarter. Who's next?
