Marvel Checklist (April 1980)

Marvel published 36 comics and 4 magazines for a total of 40 issues in April 1980. Highlights of the month included the launch of Marvel’s ongoing Star Wars series as well as the continuation of what would become known as the Dark Phoenix Saga in the pages of the Uncanny X-Men with issue #132. The combination of Chris Claremont’s writing with art by John Byrne and Terry Austin really transcended virtually every other title that Marvel was producing at this point in time. Also noteworthy is the fifth installment of the Warriors of the Golden Dawn Saga by Doug Moench and Mike Zeck in Master of Kung Fu #87, which is another remarkable writer-artist pairing that produced results that truly stand the test of time. Marvel's titles dated April 1980 would have been on newsstands in January 1980 based on the three-month advance dating convention.
