Retro Foreign: Marvel Star Comics #17

Kabanas Hellas is a Greek publisher from 1975 to 1992.  Kabanas Hellas is known to foreign comic collectors because it is the first company to translate Marvel comics for Greek readers.  Their longest running title is Spider-Man which ran for 589 issues from 1977 until the company ceased published comics in 1992.  For Star Wars comics fans, they are best known for publishing a 9 issue series from 1978 to 1979.  Less known are their translations of Marvel's Ewoks issues in the Marvel Star Comics title.  The title contains Greek editions of comics published in Marvel's all age imprint, Star Comics.  Issue #17 contains the Greek translation of Ewoks #2.
