Retro Marvel: Star Comics Magazine #1

Toward the end of 1986, Marvel Comics had already published over a year of Star Comics issues.  Star Comics was an imprint that Marvel used to publish humor books aimed at young audiences.  Archie was having success with a digest-sized format of comics that reprinted several Archie stories, so it was only naturally that Marvel would try the same format.  In December 1986, they published Star Comics Magazine #1.  Star Comics Magazine would last only 13 issues and just 4 of the issues would contain Ewoks reprints, issues #1 - 3 and 5.  No Droid reprints would appear in the title.

Star Comics Magazine #1 contains reprinted stories for Heathcliff, Top Dog, and the Muppet Babies in addition to Ewoks.  Wicket would represent the Ewoks on all 4 covers that contained Ewoks reprints and the first issue reprints Ewoks #1.
