Comic Version of First 'Star Wars' Script From Dark Horse
Lucasfilm and Dark Horse are teaming up to adapt The Star Wars, George Lucas’s original-draft screenplay from 1974.
The Lucas screenplay, which begat—but is much different than—the Star Wars series of films, tells the star-spanning space opera tale of Jedi Annikin Starkiller, General Luke Skywalker, the evil Sith Knights, and a six-foot lizard named Han Solo.

Written by LucasBooks executive editor J. W. Rinzler and drawn by Vampirella veteran Mike Mayhew, the adaptation will launch in September and run eight issues.
