Now this is how you go out on a high. As the last three Dark Horse comic releases approach and an era ends, the trade paperback of The Star Wars lands at number one on the New York Times Bestseller List.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: MILWAUKIE, OR—After an amazing eight-issue run, the graphic novel collection of The Star Wars has soared to the top of the New York Times bestseller list!
Before Star Wars, there was The Star Wars! This is the official adaptation of the rough-draft screenplay by George Lucas for what would become Star Wars—the film that changed motion pictures and the world. You’ll see familiar characters and places—but not all is the same in this long-ago and faraway galaxy. Still, strap yourself in for high adventure and lazersword duels, Jedi Knights, Princess Leia, Han Solo, and a battle to defeat the evil Empire!
The trade paperback collection of The Star Wars collects issues #1–#8 and landed at number one on the bestseller list. The hardcover edition collects issues #1–#8 and issue #0 of The Star Wars and landed at #3.
Dark Horse announced this Star Wars dream project in April 2013: working with J. W. Rinzler, executive editor at LucasBooks, and artist Mike Mayhew (Avengers) to adapt the rough-draft original screenplay which spawned the biggest franchise in film history!
The Star Wars is available in bookstores everywhere.
A deluxe, oversized boxed-set edition containing the entire saga—plus extras—in three foil-stamped, hardcover volumes will be released on August 13!
