Publication Dates: February 8, 1978 – May 21, 1980
Number of Issues Published: 117 (#1 – #117)

Republishing issues of the Marvel Comics Star Wars series, along with Marvel Comics’s Pizzazz Magazine comic strips in the United Kingdom, Star Wars Weekly began on February 8, 1978 and went through several name changes throughout the years before its end in 1986. All titles continued a single numbering system until Return of the Jedi Weekly, which reset the numbering to #1. The series was published by Marvel UK, a division of Marvel Comics that reprinted American stories for the British market.

The main difference between the British series and its American counterpart was that the former took anywhere from two to three issues to publish all of the content printed in only one issue of the latter. More than one story would often run concurrently.

Many issues also included articles and interviews, as well as additional stories from other Marvel Comics series.

This series did contain some original comic strips that did not appear in either the Marvel Star Wars series or the Pizzazz Magazines. To this day, a number of them have not yet been reprinted in either Marvel-published graphic novels or Classic Star Wars comic books from Dark Horse Comics such as Devilworlds (which reprinted seven of the eight post-TESB stories). Leland Chee noted in the hardcover Luke Skywalker book that a volume of “lost” material will at some point be coming out from Dark Horse which should collect all the Marvel UK stories. In 2013, Dark Horse released Omnibus: Wild Space Volume 1 which collected several Marvel UK comics.

    Boutje “Star Wars Weekly” ran for 117 issues and then changed it’s name to “The Empire Strikes Back” with issue 118 and changed back to Star Wars with issue 159.
    It then ended it’s run on issue 170

    1-117 = “Star Wars Weekly”

    118-158 = “The Empire Strikes Back”

    159-170 = “Star Wars”

    The “The Empire Strikes Back” links you have posted

    “The empire strikes back 140-142,145”
    “The empire strikes back 146-148,151”
    “The Empire strikes back 143,144,149,150,152,153”

    and “The Empire strikes back 154-158”

    are all duplicates of your “Star Wars” links?

    Still missing ROJ 32 as far as I can see. You might already know that, but since Lee gave you a link to what is supposed to be the full run and you added a bunch after that date, I wasn’t sure if you overlooked it.
