Before Star Wars, there was The Star Wars! This is the authorized adaptation of the rough-draft screenplay by George Lucas–the story that would eventually become a motion picture that would change the world. Annikin Starkiller is the hero . . . Luke Skywalker is a wizened Jedi general . . . Han Solo is a big green alien . . . and the Sith . . . Well, the Sith are still the bad guys. High adventure and derring-do from longer ago, in a galaxy farther away! The Star Wars was one of the breakout comic-book hits of the past year. The deluxe edition contains Issues #0-8 of The Star Wars saga, a portfolio of the comic covers, and an introduction by writer Jonathan Rinzler all collected in three deluxe, foil-stamped, hardcover volumes and enclosed in a clothbound clamshell box measuring 9″x13.5″x3″.
