If you're like me, you know that all of the Star Wars stuff that keeps coming out cannot possibly measure up to the original movies. However, Classic Star Wars
from Goodwin and Williamson recaptures the joy of seeing Star Wars
for the first time. The book reproduces the newspaper strips published between 1981 and 1984, but instead of merely reprinting the strips, the images are arranged to be more suitable for the comic book page. The result is sometimes slow and repetitive, though that's easy to forget with the gorgeous art and fun story.
