Omnibus: A Long Time Ago... Volume 1 is an Omnibus-series trade paperback collecting the first twenty-seven issues of the Marvel Star Wars comic book series.

Publisher's summaryEdit

Collecting the first twenty-six [sic] issues of the Marvel Comics Star Wars series that launched in 1977 (the same year as the first film), this first volume of Star Wars Omnibus: A Long Time Ago... is a must have for any Star Wars fan!

Future volumes will include material not previously collected along with the consecutively numbered Marvel run: the comics adaptation of Return of the Jedi, material from Marvel UK, the Droids and Ewoks series, and other rare Star Wars comics.

Back coverEdit

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away....

With those words the world was plunged into an epic adventure that continues to this day on television, in novels, in video games and in comic books.

From July 1977 to September 1986, Marvel Comics Group published monthly comics based on the wildly successful Star Wars film franchise.

When looking back at these early tales with the advantage of hindsight, the "mistakes" (such as the idea that Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker's father were two different people) are obvious, but at the time, the Star Wars galaxy was a great unknown. While there has been much discussion over the years as to how, where, or even if these stories fit into the official Star Wars continuity, there is no denying their charm and their power to entertain.

Collected here are the first twenty-seven issues of Marvel Comics Star Wars series that launched in 1977—the same year as the first film, beginning with the comics adaptation of A New Hope.
