In this episode, I'm joined by The Confessor for the first part of our epic deep dive into the original classic Marvel Comics run of Star Wars, which ran for 107 issues plus annuals beginning in 1977. Along the way, we will also be discussing exclusive supplimental stories published in Pizzazz, and in Marvel's UK Star Wars weekly comic.
In this first episode, Confessor and I discuss the origins of the Marvel Star Wars series, covering the contributions of writer Roy Thomas from the title's genesis through issue #10.
The episode begins with a brief exploration of Confessor's reading and collecting history, with the Star Wars discussion beginning at the 12:57 mark. Enjoy!
