Plot summary[edit | edit source]
Development[edit | edit source]
Starting with this story arc, each Sunday strip included a panel called the "Star Wars Scrapbook," which showed a character, weapon, or vehicle from Star Wars lore as it existed when the comic was created. This panel was meant to be disposable, so that newspapers which laid out their Sunday comics in an alternate format could exclude it without those readers missing any part of the story.
