Original Star Wars comic book, issue 1, well-worn and loved. I remember pouring over this thing like crazy when it arrived ahead of the film’s release, then was surprised by my father taking me to a showing in a theater not far from our apartment in Chicago. It was all magical. I still recall lights like stars in the theater ceiling, then the stars and the crawl on screen before John Williams’ theme hit me like a freight train. Great memories.
