Behind the scenesEdit
This is the first Star Wars Expanded Universe story ever published, arriving two weeks before Marvel Star Wars #7: "New Planets, New Perils."
In addition to The Keeper's World and Meet the Star Wars Superstars!, Pizzazz #1 also had a Star Wars cover featuring R2-D2 and C-3PO, where they satirically state that Darth Vader is arriving with a can opener, his ultimate weapon. It also included an advertisement and order form for Marvel Special Edition Featuring Star Wars 1 and Marvel Special Edition Featuring Star Wars 2.
