Fazekas' Star Wars

Attila Fazekas is a Hungarian képregény (comic) artist who got his start in the 1970s. In 1982, he published an unlicensed two-part adaptation of Star Wars with scripts by Tibor Cs. Horváth. Remarkably, over 300,000 copies each were sold in this country of 10.71 million people and by some accounts, this "was the most popular comic book of all times ever published and sold" in Hungary. Artist Attila Fazekas began adapting the Star Wars films in 1982, working off the screenplays, as well as countless theater viewings. That caused the illustrations to either be incredibly accurate or slightly generic. About 300,000 to 500,000 copies of the Hungarian comic book versions of Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back were sold in the country. But Marvel Comics, which had the license at the time to publish Star Wars comics, found about them and forced the artists to stop before The Return of the Jedi could be adapted.
