Star Wars Weekly was a Marvel UK comic first published on February 8th 1978. The comic reprinted the monthly Marvel US issues as well as offering original stories. Included in the comic were other strips from Marvel’s stable such as The Micronauts, Deathlok, Star Lord, Warlock and Tales of the Watcher.
Star Wars Weekly #1 was published on 8 February 1978. It came with a free cut-out X-Wing Fighter. The artwork is credited to Howard Chaykin and Tom Palmer – see photo above.
The ramaining pictures are random covers I’ve scanned from my collection to hopefully show a broad range of the art teams behind these works. Featured artwork comes from Carmine infantino, Frank Springer, Gene Day, Pablo Marcos, Michael Golden and Terry Austin.
There were other great artists who worked on these comics along with strong writers, letterers and toners such as Goodwin, Costanza, Rosen, Bender and the like. I’d recommend checking the issues out – especially some of the original stories that appear and introduce us to an intriguing range of new characters and worlds.
