In 1986, Marvel introduced DROIDS, a comic book series starring R2-D2 and C-3PO, the lovable droids from the Star Wars films. Since the title was based on the cartoon series of the same name, it was released under the Star Comics name, a subline of comics that were aimed at a younger audience.

The bi-monthly series ran for a year, ending with issue #8. Of particular interest are issue #4, which was the first chapter in a crossover with the Star Comics series Ewoks, and issue #s 6-8, which featured "Star Wars According to the Droids," complete with additional scenes told from the perspective of the droids. Marvel UK also released several magazines that contained reprints of the DROIDS material.
