From August 1977: Some very early heavyweight STAR WARS coverage in VECTOR ("The critical journal of Science Fiction") published by The British Science Fiction Association.
It's worth remembering that STAR WARS didn't get its' London premiere until Christmas 1977 and didn't go on nationwide release until the following year (which is why Marvel and other merchandisers waited until then to launch their official, and unofficial, tie-ins). So this is very early coverage for a UK publication.
The BSFA was established in 1958 and is still going strong today.
I've never been a member, I found this issue in a dealer box recently and it was too good to pass up.
Note the original Star Wars logo here, with spiky W prongs which were later flattened out (care of or inspired by the Marvel Comics logo tweak, or so the story goes).ReplyDelete
