A week that I have waited for with eager anticipation since I set my mind to this task is finally here. 1977. The year Star Wars hit theatres.
To commemorate this, and continuing what is turning into a 19_7 tradition, I asked another local comic artist to do an original Star Wars piece for me.
The artist’s name is James Zintel.
You can check out his art at
So join me this week as I celebrate the film that raised the bar for all Sci Fi to come by looking at a trio of work from the Star Wars universe: A New Hope, the original Marvel Comics that came out that year, and the more recently published The Star Wars, which is the original script interpreted in comic form.
May the force be with you!
