My latest Star Wars In The UK entry and my 50th solo blog on the official site lands over at StarWars.com as I take a look at issue 4 of Star Wars Weekly.
February 29, 1978. That was a leap year, wasn’t it? Nope. 1976 and 1980 were leap years, so why does the cover boldly state: “No. 4, Feb. 29, 1978, Every Wednesday”? Simple, someone made a mistake. The correct cover date should have been March 1, 1978, but hey, who’s counting? We’re about to embark on an intergalactic adventure with the galaxy’s greatest heroes in a four-color frenzy (well, this is a UK comic so it’s mostly black and white) that’s truly out of this world.
