Trailer for the ‘The Star Wars’ – an Upcoming Comic Book Release .


The eight-issue comic book will be released on September 4 and it is an adaptation of Lucas’ first rough draft of Star Wars from May 1974…

The overall themes of The Star Wars are similar, but there are some differences: Princess Leia still needs saving; the droids C-3PO and R2-D2 (who actually talks) are around, as is the Wookiee Chewbacca; and the Jedi mentor-apprentice relationship of Obi-Wan Kenobi and farmboy Luke Skywalker is replaced by that of wizened war vet Luke Skywalker and farmboy Anakin Starkiller.

There is an Emperor, but he’s a politician and not a Sith lord. Same with Darth Vader, a general in the Imperial army — the infamous bad guy moviegoers know is actually an amalgam of the military figure.

Lightsabers are nonexistent — in The Star Wars, everybody wields “lazer swords,” They’re just like swords in a Robin Hood movie. The Jedi and Sith just happen to be a lot better at using theirs.

Solo is the most intriguing variation of them all. When readers meet this reptilian version of the classic rogue, he wears a vest, but that’s where the similarities end.
