As some may have noticed, our Webstrips page contains links to all the "stories" archived on Hyperspace. However, only a very few of these stories are original material (Evasive Action, Rookies) . The rest are all stories already published as part of Classic Star Wars. For example, Iceworld, telling the story of the HRD Frija is covered in Classic Star Wars 12 and Classic Star Wars 13 which are part of Classic Star Wars Volume 2: The Rebel Storm. So I guess my question is...how should we deal with this? It's obviously duplicate information, so what should be done? The biggest problem is that for CSW, the stories stretched from one issue to the next, creating a cliffhanger for each story, which means simple redirects aren't really a good solution. So should we just redirect to the TPB and make a note on the webstrip page? I'm open to options.

  • I think all articles should link to the actual name of the strip/arc. For example, if you cite The Serpent Masters as a source, then you can click on that link and see its publishing history - "originally published in 1981 by the Los Angeles Times Syndicate, republished by Dark Horse Comics, beginning on page 12 of Classic Star Wars 4, all through Classic Star Wars 5, and ending on page 5 of Classic Star Wars 6. It was again republished on StarWars.com's webstrips section of Hyperspace." The issues of Classic Star Wars could just list the name of the strips/arcs, and the plot information would only be added to the strips articles. Uh, did that make any sense? --Azizlight 05:05, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
    • Yes, I just now saw what you did with The Bounty Hunter of Ord Mantell and Classic Star Wars 2. That makes sense to me, but the only problem is that not all the stories will be named until they are published in the webstrips section correct? I don't remember each story being named within the CSW compilations. If they were, then please correct me, and we should probably get to work having articles on each story-arc.

      • They've all been named, and we already have articles for them all (see here). And I agree with Aziz that the comic strip story articles are the ones to focus on. The CSW versions are just reprints/collections, really. -- Ozzel 05:40, 13 April 2007 (UTC)
        • Ah, thanks. That solves one question. Should probably try to tie those two together somehow. Any input on the Marvel problem? ;) Cull Tremayne 05:51, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

This brings me to another..."concern" as it were. This has to do with Marvel Star Wars. We've already created pages for all 107 issues of the series. The problem (besides not having "expanded" the last half of the issue pages :-P) is that there is a discrepancy regarding the series. The British counterpart to this series was called Marvel Star Wars UK Weekly. The problem is that because the comic was released in weekly intervals, it not only split up the American Marvel issues, but also had time for "extra" stories that were only released in the U.S. in hard to find compilations such as Classic Star Wars: Devilworlds, Marvel Illustrated Books Star Wars 1, and Marvel Illustrated Books Star Wars 2: World of Fire. So my second question, is how should we deal with these UK weekly's that have extra stories? Should we create the pages for all of the Marvel Star Wars UK issues, even though the vast majority of them will be the exact same content of the Marvel comics we've already documented? As you can see, this is sort of the same problem as the first as it took several Marvel UK Weekly's to complete the story in one American Marvel comic, and probably started new stories much the same as the CSW did. The final thing to note is that Planet of Kadril was never reprinted as part of CSW, even though it was part of the newspaper line, and Death-Masque was never reprinted as part of the Marvel line, even though it was part of Marvel UK Weekly's Star Wars line. So for both of these situations, I'm just wondering how we should handle this. We don't want redundant information anyway. Cull Tremayne 04:53, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

  • I think it would be too redundant to create another article for every UK issue. Maybe we could have just one article about Marvel Star Wars UK Weekly, that lists every issue's contents in relation to the US issues. --Azizlight 11:28, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
  • And perhaps on every US Marvel issue article we can note the corresponding UK issue. --Azizlight 11:33, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
