In a comic book store just only blocks away a comic, based on the rough-draft by George Lucas sits on a shelf waiting for you. The Star Wars
So Dark Horse is getting all it can get out of it’s run of the Star Wars universe before their license runs out and Star Wars heads over to Disney and Marvel. After reading this book I can see why this is the first rough-draft. The basic story is still there, and evil empire, a young jedi, a older father figure jedi, a young princess, and the action and adventure. J. W. Rinzler takes George’s rough-drafts and tries to bring life to it. As a fan of the GOOD series that came to the big screen I have to say that if this was the movie it would of only lasted a couple of days. The Sith is hunting down the rest of the Jedi’s for the evil empire and Darth Vadar is human with none of the fancy breathing gear.
The art by Mike Mayhew is good and from most of the the books I have read from Dark Horse, looks like water color paintings. I am not sure but this seems to be a trade mark of all Dark Horse books. This book is more of curiosity then a good book in story telling. I am not saying not to get this book. It is interesting seeing what the process of the origin of Star Wars to what it became.
So if you a Star Wars fan I say get it. If you not a fan then spend you money on another book.
So I give The Stars Wars, 2 1/2 Darth Vaders out of 5
Remember comics are to be enjoyed, not destroyed.
