Maybe this is old news to some of you, and I guess this doesn’t technically count as “original Marvel”, but I just found out that at some point Al Williamson was commissioned to adapt ANH into a comic strip and just had to post it here. Williamson only did twelve strips before Russ Manning was hired to make original stories instead.
First three strips (not counting the crawl):
Source & remaining twelve strips
Although this version is quite rushed compared to Chaykin’s adaptation, it would still have been interesting to have seen how this had turned out had he been given the chance to do the whole movie. At least it gives an insight into what a proper AH adaptation by Williamson might have looked like.
(Also, if anyone know where I can find these in better quality, please let me know.)
