    Ernie Chan Marvel Special Edition #3 Star Wars "May the Force Be With You" Back Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1978). If you were a kid in the late seventies you remember very well that the Star Wars mania of 1977 hadn't abated one bit by 1978 in the minds of elementary-schoolers across the country. Marvel capitalized on this by combining the two treasuries that reprinted regular issues of Star Wars #1-3 and #4-6 into one giant treasury with this new back cover by Chan, and many kids read and re-read this version of the yarn. Marvel took a bit of artistic license by combining Luke and Leia's swing across the elevator shaft and a Darth Vader/Obi-Wan showdown into one scene -- brilliantly. This iconic Star Wars masterwork has an image area of 10" x 13.5". There is some paper residue in the upper and lower borders where an overmat had been affixed to the page (outside the image area); otherwise, the art is in Excellent condition.
