Notes:
It is currently unknown which artists belong to which story, but clearly the back-up story is "A Stranger Among Us!"

While the title may make it seem like "Alderaan" is a significant story in the development of Leia's character, it's actually a Star Wars conversion of a pre-existing John Carter of Mars story.
