Before STAR WARS, there was Howard Chaykin’s IRONWOLF

In American Comic Book Chronicles: The 1970s, contributor Dave Dykema notes that, in 1976, when Marvel Comics agreed to publish a comic book adaptation of the upcoming Star Wars movie, filmmaker George Lucas made two requests: “First, in order to maximize publicity, Marvel’s first two Star Wars issues had to be on the newsstands before the film came out.

So when I had the opportunity to attend the NJ Comics Expo I was curious enough to give it a shot and in hindsight, I feel that my experience was better then I could have ever expected.
