Retro Foreign: Spanish la Guerra de las Galaxias: el Imperio Contraataca #5 (Editorial Bruguera)

Editorial Bruguera published a trade paperback containing The Empire Strikes Back or el Imperio Contraataca movie adaptation in 1980.  This trade paperback is numbered 5, continuing the numbering of the first 4 la Guerra de las Galaxias collections, even though this is not a collection of previously published Spanish language comics.  This trade paperback is also smaller than the previous 4 collections, although it is larger than a standard sized comic.
