Retro Foreign: French Canadian la Guerre des Etoiles: le Retour du Jedi

In 1979, DC Comics released the first mini-series, World of Krypton.  A mini-series is a title with a predetermined number of issues.  Marvel quickly began experimenting with their own mini-series.  This new format allowed Marvel Comics to release 2 Star Wars titles from October 1983 through January 1984 when they decided to publish the Return of the Jedi movie adaptation as a 4 issue mini-series alongside the main Star Wars title.

The roughly 1/5th of Canada's population that speaks French also received their own Return of the Jedi editions; les Editions Heritage combined 2 issues each of the U.S. edition into a 2 part mini-series.
