Classic Marvel Star Wars Comics King-Size Annual #1


In this King-Size episode, we dive into Classic Marvel Star Wars Comics King-Size Annual #1! (December 1979) This one-shot story is double the size of a regular issue, and is split into two parts: "The Long Hunt" and "A Dual of Eagles". We will be talking about both with our special guest, Chris Alexander (Star Wars Origami author).

Richard, Sarah and Chris discuss this comic and find FTOOM! Fast Facts (classic comic people or places that appear now in Star Wars books, comics and films). Plus, what is up with our heroes mingling with the likes of fantasy characters - are those werewolves?? We all remark on the artwork - it is SO MUCH better than previous issues. Hmmm, could that be due to new artists? We think so. Do you remember this comic as a kid, like Richard and Chris? Or are you new to these stories - like Sarah? Either way, we have a fun podcast episode for you.
