Those late 1970's issues of the Star Wars comic books are great because they're so far out (Jaxxon the giant green rabbit). They're from such a wonderful time in SW when there was just the first movie and everyone's wild imagination about what would come next. Anyone that digs the weird old days of Star Wars should take a look at the old newspaper comic strips from 1979 to 1984. They're available in a book called Star Wars: The Classic Newspaper Comics: Volume One by Russ Manning, etc. covering 1979 and 1980 can be really wacky but fun. The second and upcoming third volumes of the newspaper comic strips are written by Archie Goodwin & drawn by the great Al Williamson came out after Empire and are more in line with what would be considered normal SW tales. That was probably the most screen time that Chewbacca has gotten in any Star Wars movie and he was a highlight.
