[Star Wars]
A Guide to Marvel's original Star Wars comic book series.

In July 1977 Marvel Comics published their first Star Wars comic book, the first of a six-part comic adaptation of A New Hope (or rather just Star Wars as it was known in 1977). By May 1986, when they published their last issue, Marvel Comics had produced 107 consecutive issues (111 when including the separate four-issue adaptation of Return of the Jedi).
While this is a guide to the major US releases from Marvel Comics, it is not a definitive guide to all of Marvel Comics' Star Wars publications. For example, it does not include the multitude of variant covers that accompanied the release of the first six issues , nor does it include the several Marvel Illustrated Books or non-US titles, e.g. Marvel Comics UK not only reprinted many of the US stories but also published many original stories not published in the US.

Dark Horse Comics' comic book reprints:
In 1994 Dark Horse Comics reprinted Marvel Comics' adaptations of the Original Trilogy movies, each as two-issue comic books. One year later, as part of their Classic Star Wars reprint series (which included reprinting the comic strips that first appeared in The LA Times, c. 1981-1984), they reprinted Marvel Comics issue #98 Supply and Demand as Classic Star Wars: The Vandelhelm Mission. In 1999 Dark Horse Comics reprinted selected Marvel Comics stories in a six-issue black and white comic book series, A Long Time Ago...

Dark Horse Comics' Graphic Novels (Trade Paperbacks) & Collected Volumes:
In 1995 Dark Horse Comics collated their reprints of Marvel Comics' adaptations of the Original Trilogy movies and published them as collected graphic novels. Then in 2002, Dark Horse Comics reprinted all 107 issues of Marvel's comic book series including their adaptations of A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back (but not Return of the Jedi) as well as the three Annuals from 1979, 1982 and 1983 in their seven-volume A Long Time Ago... collection.
In 2010, as part of their Omnibus collection, Dark Horse Comics once again began republishing Marvel Comics' comic book series but future volumes promise to include material not previously collected along with the consecutively numbered Marvel run: the comics adaptation of
Return of the Jedi, material from Marvel UK, the Droids and Ewoks comic book series, and other rare Star Wars comics.
