* OffModel: The initial miniseries was rushed out quickly with two artists working in tandem. The results were some ''very'' inconsistent looks for the characters. In the first issue Luke looks more like [[Franchise/MastersOfTheUniverse He-Man]] than Mark Hamill.

Marvel ''Star Wars'' eventually ran [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Star_Wars_%28Marvel%29 for a total of 107 issues and three annual specials]]. It ended in 1986. The series covered the events of the movies as well as stuff happening between them and eventually after them, making it an ExpandedUniverse before the StarWarsExpandedUniverse as we know it today.

** And of course, with the ''Legends'' decision in 2014, the comic series in its entirety is non-canon, with only a few elements surviving in the new continuity.

** A rare unintended example occurs in one of the annuals. Vader takes in a boy who had found his mother's dead body, openly saying that he was once in the same position. We're meant to think he was lying just to get the boy on his side...but ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'' reveals that he really ''was'' once in the same position.

** An issue of the Marvel series deals with Wes Janson's death. Wes is alive and well in the XWingSeries, set a few years later. [[AllThereInTheManual Supplemental material]], specifically [[http://wizards.com/default.asp?x=starwars/article/sw20040401adumarmain Adumar: Pilots Wanted]], {{Retcon}}s this rather than ignoring it completely. It's a story Wedge would tell new recruits before calling in Wes. Even Luke fell for it.

** As can be seen [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Canon#Canon_in_the_Holocron_continuity_database here]], MarvelStarWars is considered to be on a lower level of canon than most of the StarWarsExpandedUniverse, although its material can be used or discarded as other authors wish, as long as it does not contradict the higher levels of canon.
