Albert Bigley 1978 STAR WARS Art! Luke! Leia! Han! Chewbacca! Marvel Comics?

Although I was never into STAR WARS, I was interested in the design and look of the suddenly ubiquitous characters that were cropping up everywhere in 1977, on books covers, ads, and merchandise.  A neighbor gave me the 3-pack reprint collection of the best-selling first Marvel Comics issues one Christmas, and I cribbed this image from the cover of one of those comics! Ya gotta love the Dorothy Hamill hair on Mark (Dorothy) Hamill, the awkward Chewbacca, and odd cropping...Click to enlarge, and may the Force be with you!
