Dark Horse Announces Comic Book Based on Original ‘Star Wars’ Screenplay

The Star Wars

Dark Horse has announced that it will be turning George Lucas’ original Star Wars screenplay into a comic book. The story that spawned the movie franchise was originally titled The Star Wars, featured “lazer swords” instead of lightsabers, and told the story of Jedi Annikin Starkiller, General Luke Skywalker, and a six-foot tall lizard alien named Han Solo fighting evil Sith Knights. LucasBooks executive editor J.W. Rinzler and Avengers artist Mike Mayhew will be working with Dark Horse on the eight-issue comic series set to release in September 2013.
