Marvel To Republish Archie Goodwin And Al Wlliamson's Empire Strikes Back – But Which Yoda Will We Get?

MCIVOTESBIn August, Marvel Comics is republishing their eighties adaptation of Empire Strikes Back as Star Wars: Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.

Originall published in Star Wars 39-44, you can buy the original magazine collectionfor under ten bucks and the subsequent paperback version for a cent or the more recent Dark Horse republication for five bucks.

But on the off chance that anyone who wants a copy doesn't have one, the new hardcover version will go for $25.

When first published, the comic had to be finished before production on the movie. And as the appearance of Yoda had been kept under wraps to prevent leaks in the fan press (not so much different thirty-five years later), in the comics he looked like this.


Later amended to look like this.


Which one will we get?
