The Constancia Affair - originally published March 11th, 1979

Welcome to Daily Star Wars

2009 marks the 30th anniversary of the original Star Wars daily strip that was published in newspapers by the Los Angeles Times Syndicate. In honor of that I've decided to start this blog where I'll be posting a new strip everyday to recreate the series original run. These strips were some of the only Star Wars stories going on at the time and generally had a more serious tone than their Marvel cousin. They're also officially recognized as part of the EU and fill in the gaps between films.

Today will be the start of the Constancia Affair and then Monday will see the start of Gambler's World. Both stories were written and drawn by Russ Manning.
