2000 AD - Summer Special 1977

Continuing with 2000AD for a bit we have the summer special from 1977. I always loved the summer specials from any comic as they were a larger size and usually printed on a glossier kind of paper which made them stand out a bit from the regular weeklies.Anyway this one here has all the usual favourites and also includes a short feature on a film that i doubt you've ever heard of called Star Wars or something like that. Also included is a pullout poster featuring various characters from the comic. So as the nostalgia train keeps rolling lets take a seat,and take in some of the views from the galaxys greatest,enjoy and leave a comment.Thanks!
