With issue #118 (29th May 1980), the title was changed to 'Star Wars: The Empire strikes Back' and the comics adaptation of the second movie began to appear (this ran until #138, with a break in #135, which also introduced new backup strip Killraven). Issue #139(23rd October 1980) was the last weekly issue, the title becoming a monthly with #140. The title reverted to simply 'Star Wars' soon afterward.In issue #151, the first UK originated Star Wars strip appeared: 'The Pandora Effect', by Alan Moore & Adolfo Buylla, while #153 gave us 'Dark Knights' Deviltry' by Steve Moore and Alan Davis. Alan Moore scripted backup strips appeared in ##154-156 (Davis drew the one in #156) and #159. The original series ended with #171 (dated July 1983, but issued in June). The series was relaunched as the fortnightly 'Star Wars: Return of the Jedi' (beginning with the movie adaptation and then, as before, continuing with reprints of the Marvel strip) on 22nd June 1983 and ran for a further 155 issues in this format until 31st May 1986, when it was cancelled and the Star Wars strip moved into the pages of Spider-Man & Zoids.
