Weren't those comics originally put out by Marvel?  The whole line is available in TPB although it is a 7 book set.  Here's a set of them:




** expired eBay auction **




They are in colour on fairly nice paper.

I recently bought my son a "Star Wars" toy, and included with it was a reprint of a "Star Wars" comic book that was quite obviously produced around the time of the original release of the first movie in 1977 (Now titled "Episode IV", of course).

(In fact, the comic includes some material that I know was actually cut from the original movie, like Luke and Biggs near the beginning of the story, etc)

The issue he got with his toy was the first volume of a multi-volume set.

I'd like to get the rest of them for him, but I'm not sure how/where to start.

I know nothing about comics.

Plus, all I want are reprints.  I'm not interested in anything collectible.

Thanks,
Keith


The entire Marvel Comics Star Wars run, including the movie comics, are available in TPB versions from Dark Horse.  I believe they are now out of print; however, they shouldn't be that hard to find.  They are pretty nice quality.

I looked at these figures/comic just this morning at a store.

Yes, that is it exactly.  Whichever toy we got for our son came with "Issue # 1" in above link.

Since I'm specifically looking for the issues pertaining to just the first movie, I'm wondering how to best identify them, especially if the TPB version is OOP.

Thanks,
Keith

You just need the first TPB then.  The series kicked off with the movie adaptation, after that original stories, it collects the first 20 issues of the comic and was a $30 cover price originally .  Even thought OOP, the first few TPBs are the easiest to find.  Try www.darkhorse.com to see if they have any others still in stock.

More priceless feedback follow ups from asylum-books-and-games:

Human or a failed, word-generating AI? I've read better spam than this drivel!!!

Get some medication for whatever your malfunction is - Cougarretard is so apt...

Has anybody invited him to the forum yet? Is he a member already?

I guess Kynan isn't content with just one copy of The Ringbearer or even two for that matter:




** expired eBay auction **





** expired eBay auction **





** expired eBay auction **




I didn't even bother to bid on the last one as it would have made more sense to just hammer my self in the head with a ballpine hammer, and no I could really careless that all three are different colored covers. Thats right 3 auctions in one weeks time and he won all three.  What a f**king dick. :roll:

Is he a print run junkie? Cause you know for damn sure I'd do the same for Judges Guild stuff if it fell like that (have on the Character Codex, but that was two different printings, and the 3rd such auction was a duplicate - all had the same 2nd place bidder)

Maybe, but it doesn't make it any less of a dick move IMO. I view that type of behavior as "hostile" to the marketplace and as a precursor to someone trying to corner the market or to ensure that a certain item(s) goes for a certain price.  Those types of actions land people quickly on my "blocked" list...

Oops.   :oops:   Make that 5.  

And BTW, I think that's the first time I've ever used that particular emoticon.  Cool!

(Hope this okay to post)
Sorry to bring anyones mood down. Had a bit of a shock earlier today when I was told an old manager of mine had killed himself. I was only in the store a few hours before it was announced to the staff & was walking around thinking of another colleague who had sadly passed away in December. :/

If Only ~ Alexander  Shaumyan

(for Missy)

If only the movie were as good as the book,
And people weren't judged by the way that they looked
Or spoke, or dressed, or the way that they laughed,
If only this planet were spacious enough...

A twelve-year old boy killed a six-year old girl,
With violent blows he ended her world,
And somebody spoke: "If only...
If only we weren't so lonely..."

If only we knew how to love and to give,
To renounce our pride, if we learned to forgive,
If just for a moment, if only...
If only we weren't so lonely...

There's sadness in me, I can feel it each day,
As my youth slips away and my hair turns gray,
While the aging musicians, with their former hit songs,
Try in vain to look young with their youth all but gone,
And all I can think of: if only...
If only we weren't so lonely...

Yet time keeps on ticking and we cannot hide
The truth and the hurt and one more suicide
That made today's paper--if only...
If only we weren't so lonely...

But sometimes I wake to the radiant sun,
That's letting me know that the day has begun,
And I look at your smile, and it seems to explain
Why life has its moments of pleasure and pain,
Why the sun still returns at the end of each rain,
As I look at this world sad and lonely...
Then I look in your eyes, the eyes of a child,
That remind me of when we were crazy and wild,
Those eyes that keep saying: "If only!"


Mount Celestia doesn't want me and Baator's afraid I'll take over.

You have my condolences.

I have had people around me lose people close to them in the past year.  I have been spared any direct losses and count myself fortunate.
