May Spidey Be With You

A long, long time ago, in a comic book far, far away.....


....Spider-Man faced the evil Dr. Doom with the help of Moondragon, in an issue of Spidey Super Stories...


....in a story entitled....


STAR JAWS!


Spidey Super Stories 31

This issue came out cover dated February, 1978....


....with a cover by Keith Pollard and Frank Giacoia...


....a little after some movie gave us all A New Hope.




A story by Kolfax Mingo, Win Mortimer and Mike Esposito, "Star Jaws" gave loyal fans of the Electric Company and Marvel Comics...

....well, the story of Star Wars: A New Hope, just like it was in the theatres (almost)....



....with Spider-Man as Luke Skywalker, Moondragon as Princess Leia, Marvel Boy as Han Solo, Paul the Gorilla from Electric Company as Chewbacca, Sam the Sesame Street Robot as R2-D2 and C-3PO, Dr. Doom as Darth Vader and his Doombots as Stormtroopers, as Dr. Doom used his new space station, Star Jaws, to try to eat the Earth!


Sigh.


It was a simpler time. 


Still, it was a little fun, and did give a little info on who Moondragon and Marvel Boy were, and, hey, Marvel did have the Star Wars Property at the time!
