The Star Wars 1
Posted by Jay on September 4, 2013 at 11:21 AM CST
Based on the original screenplay by George Lucas, The Star Wars, is a re-imagining of what could have been. J.W. Rinzler adapts the original Lucas draft, with artist Mike Meyhew taking inspiration from the original designs by Ralph McQuarrie, Joe Johnston and John Mollo. Think of this as a "what if" storyline in the Star Wars universe. This is not your father's Luke Skywalker!

And be sure to check out the various collector covers available. Besides the Nick Runge cover (found at your comic store), there's also a 1:25 Jan Duursema variant, and a 1:40 Doug Wheatley variant. There's also a Midtown Comics exclusive cover, an exclusive cover from Things from Another World, plus for UK fans, a Forbidden Planet exclusive as well. And as revealed on the latests episode of Jedi Journals, there's yet another version of the Jan Duursema cover, this time in Black and White, that will be available at the New York Comic Con 2013 this October.

So, believe the hype! This is an amazing historical document in terms of Star Wars lore that is sure to appeal to fans of all ages!

And, for the fans who live in the electronic realm, the digital comics available this week at digital.darkhorse.com include: The Star Wars #1.
