Magazine sized adaptation of Return of the Jedi.

This issue is listed as a Spring 1983 issue, which would put it between mid-March and mid-Jun. We can assume that this issue was published around the time of the film release (May 25, 1983). Where it falls in the publication of the mini-series, and the Marvel Comics Illustrated version is a mystery.

The back cover features artwork from Star Wars #39.

This version is notable for it's watercolor style coloring, which was not able to be reproduced in the Marvel Comics Illustrated edition or in the monthly series.

Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
