From 1979 to 1980, comic book great Russ Manning created a popular series of Star Wars newpaper strips. Set in between the first two films, Classic Star Wars: The Early Adventures reprinted these strips for the first time in color. Artist Rick Hoberg, who originally worked with Russ Manning on the strips, worked on reformatting and retouching the original board into comic book pages. Other contributing cover artists include Mike Allred, Mike Grell, Eric Shanower, and Killian Plunkett.

This series is notable for not only introducing Blackhole and Lady Tarkin, but also features the very first appearance of the most notorious bounty hunter in the galaxy, Boba Fett!

Classic Star Wars artist Al Williamson provided the cover to the trade paperback, dedicated to Russ Manning.
