1983: MARVEL'S RETURN OF THE JEDI ADAPTATION: PAPERBACK EDITION

Repackaging the same material in numerous different formats is nothing new for comic book publishers, especially if they had an eagerly awaited blockbuster movie adaptation on their hands.  As our coverage of Marvel's 1970s and 1980s movies-to-comics adaptations (here and here) has shown, it was common practice to churn out the same material in a variety of formats.

Marvel's adaptation of RETURN OF THE JEDI back in 1983 was no exception.  This is the paperback edition of the Archie Goodwin/ Al Williamson adaptation, sold in the US and imported into the UK (I got mine, not the copy pictured, in Martins in Colchester, Essex).
