Retro Foreign: Indonesian Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back #2

I have been fortunate enough to find the second volume of The Empire Strikes Back published in Indonesia.  Like volume one, it is digest-sized and black and white.  The Yoda depiction is the early version published in the Marvel Illustrated Version of The Empire Strikes Back paperback.  Since the earlier posting, Retro Foreign: Indonesian Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back #1, I have been able to compare these 2 Indonesia volumes to the paperback and the arrangement is identical, meaning the art from these Indonesian digests are taken from the paperback.

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back #2a - Cypress, Indonesia (1980s)
contains Star Wars #42 - 44
The cover art used for the second volume is the same found on the U.S. paperback.  This comic is labeled Jilid Kendua or Second Volume.  This book is divided into 3 chapters numbered 4 through 6.  Only chapter 5, Pengkhianatan Di Bespin or Betrayal at Bespin, uses the same name as the U.S. version.  Chapter 4 is named Pemimpin Bangsa Jedi or The Leader of the Jedi and chapter 6 is named Pertarungan Yang Menentukan or The Decisive Battle.
