|In Deadly Pursuit|
Classic Star Wars Volume 1: In Deadly Pursuit was the first collection of issues from the Classic Star Wars series of comics. In Deadly Pursuit collects Classic Star Wars issues 1-7.
From 1981 to 1984, comic-book greats Archie Goodwin and Al Williamson turned out a popular series of Star Wars newpaper [sic] strips. Featuring the adventures of Luke, Leia, and Han in the time between the first and second movies, these strips were science-fiction adventure at its best.
Dark Horse reformatted those strips to make them work as a continuous story in a series of comic books, with Al Williamson himself redrawing and extending many panels for the new format. This book collects the first seven issues of the popular Dark Horse comic, with a new introduction from Archie Goodwin, new cover art, and never-before-seen art from the sketchbooks of Al Williamson.
