'Space Wars Fact And Fiction' (Octopus UK, 1980) was one of cash-in books slapped together in the wake of Star Wars. It featured a collection of stories with lavish illustrations by uncredited artists (one of them is likely to be Gerry Wood, a prolific British comic artist and illustrator) and an oddly out of place 1960s-era comic strip ‘Space Cadet’. Not very Star Warsy, but back then publishers were shoving out anything and everything as long as it had a spaceship on the front cover and had the words ‘wars’, ‘space’, or ‘star’ on it!
Nice! Even the retro cash-grabs are cool. Looks like you can get this one cheap on Amazon, too.
The Royals: Masters of War #1
Written by: Rob Williams

The premise behind Royals: Masters of War is fairly simple: the royal families have superhuman capabilities. They’re kings and queens for a reason. Take this great idea and place it in the middle of World War 2 and you have an awesome comic book setup. When one prince decides to break the long standing pact that says superhumans will not get involved in wars, it becomes clear that things are quickly going to spiral out of control.
