The things I stumble across on ebay! Anybody know the history on these? Some of the art is similar to Russ Manning, some of it is like from some alternate universe.

Chinese Star Wars Comic (Part 1 of 6) - 2014
https://www.nickstember.com/chinese-star-wars-comic-part-1-6/
This is part of one of a six part post in which I plan to translate a 142 page Chinese comic book adaptation of Star Wars originally published in Guangdong, China, in the 1980s. Thanks to Maggie Greene for giving me the go ahead to re-post her scans, and Brendan O’Kane for bringing this to my attention.

That comic is truly bizarre, the Space Battleship Yamato actually shows up. In Star Wars.

Not as bizarre as when it turned up in a Gamera movie. 😉

There has been speculation George saw SBY when he spent time in Japan in the early 70’s.

Oh I’ve read that translated version before on Nick Stember. It’s fun to see which parts were only vaguely described to the artist (Uncle Owen is actually on a farm in what looks like Texas and Jedi Knights are actual Medieval Knights) while other elements are taken from photos that were available.
