    Post Newspaper Strips

    Does anyone know if the newspaper strips were reissued in a single volume? I'm working on my SW library and finding these individually will be insane.

    There were 4 trade paperback volumes done by Dark Horse, that kinda compiled all the strips. They took out some of the first panels that reminded you what had happened in previous strips, and put them all in color ("colour" if it's in Britain ). They're called Classic Star Wars, under "Escape to Hoth," "The Early Adventures," no title for the 1st one, and a fourth I forget.

    In Deadly Pursuit is the "no title" one I was thinking of, and "Rebel Storm" is the one I forgot.

    Are they any good? How do they reconcile in the big 'one continuity' overhaul?

    I always used to despise serial comic strips because the first panel would recap everything that happened before, and the last panel would set up what would happen next. leaving one (or maybe two) panels to tell a story.

    It doesn't work for Marmaduke, either.

    ROLLO!

    Wow EP, a little over a year-to-date and this topic is brought back to life. I have all four of these trade paperbacks and there is no overlapping. I think they're good, just remember these came out during the time of the original Marvel series.

    I think I actually cut some of these out of my newspaper when I was a little kid.

    (thinking)

    That's right. We didn't get it in my local paper, but I saw it in the paper at my grandparents house in Michigan. So I cut it out for the two weeks I was up there visiting. By the time I came back the following year, they didn't have it running anymore. i still have those old clippings stashed away somewhere...

    ROLLO!

    Same for me, EP! My grandparents in Ohio got it in The Vindicator, but alas, The daily Report in California did not. I remember the story where Luke and Fett were trapped in an ice cave and had to work together to escape. Great! :happy: I no longer have mine, though.
