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... a story entitled....


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!


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!


  1. Thanks Dave. Enjoyable as always.

  2. There is no such movie as "Star Wars: A New Hope." There is only "Star Wars"! 😋

    Spidey Super-Stories was a fun comic book.
