This prestige format, limited series from Dark Horse reprints Marvel Comics’ excellent 1980 adaptation of the second film in the original Star Wars trilogy. Artfully written by the legendary Archie Goodwin (Iron Man, Manhunter), and gorgeously illustrated by the equally legendary Al Williamson (Forbidden Worlds, Weird Science), this movie adaptation, unlike many others, actually works as a comic book; it’s a real page-turner that truly captures the spirit and the excitement of the film. As a bonus, Dark Horse includes 11 pages of production sketches from “The Empire Strikes Back.”
