Star Wars comics were a hit not just in the US, but in the UK as well. Marvel Comics Star Wars stories were printed in black and white, magazine size format in the UK, usually as an anthology. They often featured one or two other Marvel characters as back-up stories, along with short articles. While the interior art was reprinted, they usually had brand new cover art. In the case of this issue, #141, the back-up tale featured another Marvel sci-fi property, Killraven. There is also a two page photo spread from a 1980 comic convention in the UK, attended my Dave Prowse, Peter Mayhew, and an actual Snowspeeder from the Empire Strikes Back. Star Wars comics were published either weekly or monthly from 1978-1983 under the following titles with consecutive numbering: Star Wars Weekly #1-117 Empire Strikes Back Weekly #118-139 Empire Strikes Back Monthly #140-158 Star Wars Monthly #159-171 Following this run, Return of the Jedi Weekly comics appeared with new numbering and ran for 155 issues. There is also short run of 10 Ewoks comics, and two Star Wars Specials (Summer and Christmas).
