    Description

    Russ Manning Star Wars Daily Comic Strip Princess Leia Original Art dated 8-17-79 (L.A. Times Syndicate, 1979). Having created and illustrated Magnus, Robot Fighter for Gold Key in 1963, Russ Manning was a perfect choice to produce this Star Wars comic that came out between the first two movies. Check out that car in the first panel... very Magnus-influenced. Also of note this strip features main characters of Luke Skywalker, C3PO, and Princess Leia. From the story arc "Gambler's World". Signed in the last panel, it was created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 14" x 4.5". In Excellent condition. From the Manning Family Collection.
