Retro Foreign: Greek SUPER ΜΠΟΫ #41

The anthology title SUPER ΜΠΟΫ from publisher Theofanis Pangalos contains the Return of the Jedi comic adaptation translated for Greek readers.  Only 3 issues of SUPER ΜΠΟΫ contain Star Wars comic covers: #29, 33, and 41.

SUPER ΜΠΟΫ #41a - Theofanis Pangalos, Greece (1983 or 1984)
3 pages of Return of the Jedi
The cover art for SUPER ΜΠΟΫ #4 is from Star Wars #4.  The surface our heroes are standing on has been brightened considerably with shades of yellow, orange, and red instead of shades of grey, blue, and green.  Obi-Wan Kenobi's robe is brown instead of green and Luke Skywalker's hair is yellow instead of brown.  In addition, Obi-Wan's lightsaber has been redrawn to be thicker.  This cover has one of those strange pairings I like about foreign covers; there is an image of a Smurf sharing the cover.
