Advertised as a new version of Star Wars, renowned writer Brian Wood lends his take on the adventures in a galaxy far, far away. The only prerequisite for this series is that the reader has seen Episode IV; no other expanded universe knowledge is needed.
This series set many records with its debut including an astonishing four reprints of issue #1. Not even the Legacy series or Dawn of the Jedi have done that (with their series only having 2 or 3 reprints.) There are also several specialty variant covers, plus sketch versions of the first four issues, all done by fan-favorite Alex Ross.
