I happened to be in Korea in 1997 when Star Wars: A New Hope Special Edition was released. This is a handout I got from the theater when I went to see it. Just in case you’re wondering, the film was in English with Korean subtitles.

I ran across this pre-movie release novelization of Star Wars (note back cover “Soon to be a spectacular motion picture…”, the understatement of the year). December 1976, five months before Star Wars was released. I wonder how many people read the book before seeing the movie.
I love the artwork on the front, obviously not how Vader appeared in the movie. I think he looks more sinister here.
I own the Marvel Comics movie adaptations of Star Wars. Mine are the 35¢ Reprint versions, worth very little.
I also have the rerelease of these by Dark Horse Comics. Despite being the same artwork, there is one huge difference I noticed–the lightsaber coloring.
