Last year, Marvel launched their new Star Wars comics by offering remastered editions of the original comic book adaptations.
Well… next March, Lusasfilm Press will release a brand new graphic novel adaptation of the original trilogy (AKA “A New Hope Strikes the Jedi”)!
I can’t discover who made this; it’s listed as “LucasFilm Book Group”. Disney has gotten better at listing creators in their licensed/studio books, so the printed book might list them inside. (In my opinion, it looks like it may have originated at Disney Italy.)
Meanwhile, here’s the basic info from Edelweiss along with six previews.
So, what do you think?
Did Han shoot first?
Who draws a better Slave Leia: Bill Sienkiewicz, Adam Hughes, Al Williamson, Shin-Ichi Hiromoto, Mort Drucker, or this newcomer?
Should Luke’s feathered shag hairstyle be updated?
Who would you like to see draw a Star Wars comic?
And most importantly… will you buy this comic? Would you buy merchandise based on these designs?
I’ve been writing for The Beat since July of 2010.
I’ve been reading comics since 1974, collecting since 1984, and spreading the graphic novel gospel since 1994.
I’m a bookseller, a librarian, an amateur scholar, a cool uncle, and a comics evangelist.
Ask me anything!
