In 1968, Spider-Man swung into a brand-new magazine-sized format - and the results were spectacular! With John Romita Sr. channeling film noir in his visuals and Stan Lee off ering longer stories for a more mature readership, these were Spidey tales like nothing that had come before! In the first issue, told in glorious halftone black-and-white, things get political as Richard Raleigh bids to be the next mayor of New York - but will his campaign be derailed by a monster running amok in the Big Apple? Then, Lee and Romita go fittingly full-color for the high-flying return of the Green Goblin - and deliver a feature-length showdown between Spidey and his archnemesis! Plus, revisit the origin of Spider-Man - as retold by Stan and his brother, Larry Lieber!

Months before the first Star Wars movie had even arrived in theaters, Marvel Comics' STAR WARS #1 hit the stands, and introduced eager readers to a galaxy far, far away!

This opening chapter of Marvel's adaptation of George Lucas' cinematic masterpiece features the debuts of some of the most beloved characters in cinematic history - including Princess Leia, R2-D2, C-3PO, and of course, the ruthless enforcer of the Galactic Empire, Darth Vader! It's one of the all-time great Marvel comic books, boldly re-presented in its original form, ads and all! Reprinting STAR WARS (1977) #1.
