    Description

    Rick Hoberg and Dave Stevens Star Wars Boba Fett Daily Comic Strip Art dated 7-24-80 (L.A. Times Syndicate, 1980). An exceptionally key and special strip, this daily, by superstar artists Dave Stevens and Rick Hoberg, contains one of the earliest printed appearances of fan-favorite The Empire Strikes Back character, bounty hunter Boba Fett, whose first print appearance came in Marvel Super Special #16 The Empire Strikes Back. His first actual comic book appearance did not occur until the December, 1980 issue of Marvel's Star Wars #42, and his first newspaper strip appearance was in the June 16th episode, just five weeks prior to this strip. Is it coincidental that Dave Stevens' Art Deco Rocketeer has an uncannily similar appearance to Boba Fett? Hmm... Done in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 14" x 4.5", the strip is in Excellent condition, with production tape in the corners.
