    Description

    Alfredo Alcala Star Wars Sunday Comic Strip Original Art dated 12-26-80 (L. A. Times Syndicate, 1980). Alfredo Alcala took over the art chores for the Star Wars strip from the late great Russ Manning, who only worked on the strip from 1979-80 due to his untimely passing. Unlike today when new "Star Wars" content appears regularly in all sorts of media, in the early 1980's fans hungered for new material with "The Empire Strikes Back" still so new. This show-stopping Sunday (based on the novel Han Solo at Star's End! by Brian Daley) stars Han Solo. The ink over graphite on Bristol board strip has an image area of 22.5" x 15", and has been nicely Plexiglas front framed to an overall size of 31" x 24". The art is in Excellent condition, with some wrinkling in the top right panel and some discoloration to the title logo stat. A full-size, hand-drawn and hand-colored color guide of the episode is also included on the back of the frame.
