View Full Version : The Star Wars Magazines Thread

11-04-2003, 12:46 AM
A couple months ago, there was a thread that listed all the Star Wars comics to date. I thought this might be a good idea, to list all the Star Wars related magazines.
The list will start "Star Wars" only magazines, such as Insider and Galaxy. Then move on to other types of magazines, such as Entertainment Weekly, People, Time, etc. For these, since they aren't running series, if you have any, post the title and issue date. Also, it'd be great to have a short synopsis, in as few words as possible, of the relation to Star Wars. I'll try to list these in the order they were released.

Let's see if we can get a running list going.
I'll update this first post with all the new listings.

Lucasfilm FanClub #1-22 (which became...)
Star Wars Insider #23-71
Star Wars Galaxy Magazine #1-10 (10 is the highest issue I have)
Star Wars Official 20th Anniversary Commemorative Magazine

I can add one to the list.it's the "Official Souvenir Magazine"

I have it stored safely but not readily accessible .It's 1977 or '78 with the same cover as the original Theatre Poster. Unfortunately thats all I can tell you about it except its similar to the 20ht anniversary souvenir mag.I dont even know if it is worth much.
