A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...no, hang on, it was in Stevenage, and on Saturday...
A town centre comic book store held a special event to mark the launch of a new limited edition comic – and welcomed iconic Star Wars characters to join the sci-fi fun.
To celebrate the launch of Marvel’s new Star Wars #1 comic, Limited Edition Comix in Market Place held an event which saw characters from the famous film franchise on parade at the store.
Actor Jeremy Bulloch, who played Boba Fett in the original films, signed pictures and books for fans.
