Retro Marvel: Marvel Illustrated Books Star Wars

The British Star Wars Weekly published new Star Wars comic content when it ran out of U.S. material to publish.  Some of that original Star Wars Weekly material was published for the U.S. in the form of two paperbacks.  The first paperback published original Star Wars Weekly content including the conclusion of the Pizzazz story The Kingdom of Ice from Star Wars Weekly #60.

This paperback contains: Way of the Wookiee from Star Wars Weekly #94 - 96, The Day After the Death Star from Star Wars Weekly #97 - 99, The Weapons Master! from Star Wars Weekly #104 - 106, and the conclusion of The Kingdom of Ice from Star Wars Weekly #60.

The cover contains a montage of the first 3 stories from the paperback, including a cool drawing of Han Solo shooting Chewbacca in the back.
