This particular Classic series were reformatted and colored reprints of the Star Wars daily newspaper strip by Archie Goodwin and Al Williamson from the early 1980s. Williamson supplied new panels and art to flow the stories for traditional comic format.
This issue reprints the middle of the The Serpent Masters comic strip.
After crash-landing their stolen Imperial ship, Luke and his new-found companion Tanith Shire are captured and enslaved by the Serpent Masters of Tanith's home planet. Artoo and Threepio are out of commission and the Millennium Falcon is light-years away, leaving Luke to find his own means of escape – with nothing but his wit, his skill, and his trusty lightsaber at hand!
