Star-Wars-1_CSTAR WARS #1
Writer: Brian Wood
Artist: Carlos D’anda
Dark Horse Comics | comic | $2.99

I know this will shock many of you, but it must be said: I am old enough to have seen Star Wars in the movies. And not the remastered version from 1997 either. I’m talking the original release in 1977 back before it was referred to as “Episode IV”. So, yeah, I’m super-old.

This also makes me super-excited to see a new ongoing series featuring Luke, Leia, Han, Chewie, and the rest from the original trilogy. This series actually has a lot to live up to because I’ve read tons of comics from this point in the Star Wars timeline. Marvel had a few years of stories from some classic comics creators. But I’m not worried because this is written by a favorite of mine, Brian Wood!

Dark Horse says: “This is Star Wars as you remember it . . . and as you have never seen it before! We’re taking you back to those heady, adventure-filled days following the destruction of the Death Star-when the Empire ruled, the Rebels were on the run, and the galaxy was a dangerous place where anything might happen!”
