INFORMATION:
The following text is from the Star Wars Galaxy #4 in an article by Chris Gove:

The year was 1976, months before filmmaker George Lucas, known then mostly as the maker of American Graffitti, would unleash the heroic tales of Luke Skywalker onto an unsuspecting world. To promote a Marvel comic book series based on the film, called Star Wars, 1,000 posters featuring a spacey montage by artist Howard Chaykin began showing up at comic shops. The same posters were offered at that year's San Diego Comic Con for a buck each in hopes of drumming up excitement for the movie's release in May 1977. Sales were slow.

Today that poster, known in collecting circles as "The Chaykin" or "Poster #1" is widely sought after by collectors as the first of many posters produced to publicize the Star Wars movies, as well as special events and related products.

Note that the poster says it is from the "Star Wars Corporation" and it sports a logo different from the final version.
