From 1978 to 1982, Star Wars comic book fans got a weekly dose of adventures in that galaxy far, far away with the Star Wars Weekly comic book.

Issue #118 had The Empire Strikes Back added to the title, as the movie was reprinted, followed by other US stories. Other Marvel sci-fi characters were included in each issue, such as the Micronauts, Warlock, the Watcher, Guardians of the Galaxy, Star-Lord, Deathlok, and Man-Wolf.

In 1981, the title changed to a monthly schedule and dropped the "Weekly" from the title. The comic art covers began using more photos from the films, and then became a series of annuals and specials printed in hardcover editions.
