    Description

    Russ Manning Star Wars Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 6-7-79 (L.A. Times Syndicate, 1979). The Star Wars comic strip was only about three months old at this point. Here, C-3PO is relating a memory of Luke Skywalker's confrontation with the mysterious entity known only as Blackhole. Artist Russ Manning is well-remembered for his comic book work on Magnus, Robot Fighter. The series was set in Earth's far-flung future, so he has a good deal of experience drawing robots and flying cars! The daily was crafted in ink and Zipatone over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 14" x 4.5". Signed in Panel 1. In Excellent condition.
