I have sadly only read reprints of Marvel Comics' 70s STAR WARS title.

Did it have a letters page? What was the letters page called? Sadly, Googling the term "Star Wars Comic letters page" brought up only images of the covers/stories inside - so can't find out that way (Google Images).

I'm curious what sort of letters the title got. I could be wrong - this will be a major assumption - but I wonder if the title got letters asking for team-ups with other Marvel properties. As a kid, I was always writing letters to titles asking for "cross-pollination" (not the term I used, wouldn't have been articulate enough to say that), but I do recall writing a letter to a Superman comic, unprinted, which asked for Spider-Man to appear.

I am just wondering what sort of letters STAR WARS COMIC received. I imagine Lucas was protective of his properties - and that maybe that placed limitations on what the title could be done.

I'd appreciate any and all insight on questions raised above.

Ah, one word made the difference.

Thank you, Shaun. I do love a letters page! :)
