Dark Horse Previews ‘The Star Wars’ # 1


George Lucas’ original, unfilmed version of Star Wars is getting visual life thanks to Dark Horse Comics. Check out these preview pages from ‘The Star Wars’ #1!

Den of Geek Reports…

Dark Horse Comics is bringing George Lucas’ original vision for Star Wars to the comics page. And, as you’re about to see, it’s a version unlike any you’ve ever seen before. You see, THIS Star Wars isn’t a matter of Special Editions, prequels, or who shot first. This is based on the early drafts of the Star Wars screenplay…most of which never made it to the screen. And the stuff that did was in a drastically altered form.

Now, Dark Horse has provided seven preview pages from this ambitious project, to give us a glimpse of a Star Wars comic unlike any they’ve ever published in their long, storied history as four-color custodians of the Star Wars legacy. The Star Wars #1 hits shops on September 4th, and is written by J.W. Rinzler with art by Mike Mayhew, and colors by Rain Beredo and Brad Anderson. Enjoy these pages, and may the force be with you…wait…will they even say that in this one?

    Cool, I’m looking forward to this. I’ve read all the draft versions of the scripts that leaked onto the net, and the earlier versions bear little resemblance to the Star Wars we’ve come to love. About the only thing that was consistent in each version was the cantina arm-severing.
