Russell Manning was an American comic book artist who created the series Magnus, Robot Fighter and illustrated suchnewspaper comic strips as Tarzan and Star Wars. He was inducted into the Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2006.
"This volume - and this whole series - is not to be missed by Star
Wars fans, science fiction comic strip enthusiasts, or those who
cherish good storytelling. When Dark Horse had the Star Wars
license, the strips...were reprinted in comic book form, but this
series restores them to the full comic strip formats. [Russ
Manning's] clean line work, impeccable storytelling, and his
understanding of the franchise...made for memorable comic strips."
--Scoop "IDW continue their trend of producing comic collections
that feel like a luxury to own, and are a rich tapestry of Star
Wars history and joy to hold in any collection - I can't recommend
picking up this collection enough." --Jedinews
