Retro Foreign: British Marvel Comics Illustrated Version of Return of the Jedi with Australian Price Sticker

In England, the three paperback versions of the original Star Wars movies all had different publishers.  Sphere Books published the Marvel Comics Illustrated Version of Star Wars.  Arrow Books published the Marvel Comics Illustrated Version of The Empire Strikes Back.  Finally, Piccolo Books published the Marvel Comics Illustrated Version of Return of the Jedi.

The Return of the Jedi paperback published by Piccolo Books was also released in Australia.  To account for the difference in cost (the paperback cost 1.25£ in England and $3.50 in Australia) a round sticker was placed over the price for the copies released in Australia.
