Star Wars Releases Rare 1980's International Marvel Comic Covers Including Darth Vader/Spider-Man Crossover

Last week, Star Wars comics made their triumphant return to Marvel with Star Wars #1. Jason Aaron and John Cassaday's comic was the first Star Wars title to be published by Marvel since the 1980's, a time when the weird ruled the comic book world. To celebrate that gloriously weird past, StarWars.com has released a collection of incredibly rare 1980's Marvel Star Wars comic covers from around the world. With covers originating from countries including the UK, Chile, Canada, and France, this is a chance to feast your eyes on the many weird and wonderful ways that the international comic book audience was able to engross themselves in the Star Wars universe.
