The Star Wars #50 Facsimile is great, but to continue the story of the Star Wars Marvel Comics with issue #108 is fantastic! Check out the full details below. It will be interesting to see if the art and storyline differ from so long ago or will it pick right up where we left off. I've read all the original Star Wars Marvel Comics and those last issues are insane. #AFJ4LIFE

Press Release: In celebration of Marvel’s 80th Anniversary, Marvel is releasing a special Facsimile edition of the 1977 STAR WARS #50! Coinciding directly with May’s upcoming STAR WARS #108 one-shot from Matthew Rosenberg and artists Giuseppe Camuncoli, Luke Ross, Kerry Gammill, Andrea Broccardo, this Facsimile features a full reprint of the issues’ classic story - ads and all! - from writer Archie Williams and artists Al Williamson, Tom Palmer and Walter Simonson!

With new stories of original series characters such as Jaxxon, Amaiza, Domina Tagge, Valance the Hunter, and more, STAR WARS #108 acts as a direct sequel to Star Wars #50 – making this a truly epic 80th Anniversary celebration!

"So many true comic legends worked on those books- Archie Goodwin, Roy Thomas, Walt Simonson, Howard Chaykin, Al Williamson, David Michelinie, Klaus Janson, Jo Duffy, and so many more. It's pretty overwhelming to think about, actually. What they made was the product of a very different time in comics, and it's something modern audiences aren't really accustomed to. So while it would be fun, if a little humbling, to try and just impersonate them, we wanted to do something a bit different, something that would appeal to classic and modern fans alike,” Matt Rosenberg told of writing STAR WARS #108.

Relive the dazzling legends of long ago and a galaxy far, far away in Marvel’s original Star Wars series with STAR WARS #50, and this May, get ready to dive into all new adventures of your favorite characters when STAR WARS #108 hits comic shops!

    Archie Williams never did a comic book: Archibald Franklin “Archie” Williams was an African-American U.S. Air Force officer and athlete and teacher, winner of 400 meter run at the 1936 Summer Olympics

      I don’t know what to tell you. This came from Marvel’s PR department.
