Synopsis:
None entered.

Reprints/Collects:
Star Wars Weekly (UK) (1978) #97

Notes:
According to many collectors, this is almost impossible to find. It appeals to two "streams" of collectors--those trying to get a complete set of novels, and those trying to finish up their set of comics--and had a low print run. Consequently, a word to the wise: should you ever find this book, hermetically seal it, put it in a safety deposit box, and wait for your moment to sell it at auction.

Until then, it is here, here, and here online.

Creators for the issue as a whole apply to each story within the issue. Jim Shooter's credit is a bit in doubt. Technically, he only is listed on "Way of the Wookie" as "Consulting Editor". Since "Wookie" is the first story in this collection, though, it's possible he's also the consulting editor for the entire book, and may well be listed as such on the frontispiece. Good luck finding the frontispiece, though.

Synopsis:
Explains how Leia, ostensibly from the pacifist Alderaan, became so good with a blaster.

Notes:
Referenced by Ann Crispin in her Han Solo trilogy, bringing it into the larger pre-prequel trilogy Expanded Universe. However, it would be extremely interesting to examine this story in light of what we now know of her father in Episodes II and III.

Synopsis:
This story concludes the Pizzazz serials, which cut short in the American comic book market but completely finished in the UK. This is the only known printing of the story in the US market--alas, not in an issue of Pizzazz proper.

Notes:
Reprinted from the British Star Wars Weekly #60.
