Conan‘s Brian Wood takes Star Wars fans back to the era of the original Star Wars trilogy in this new ongoing series!
“A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…”
Those words have fired the imaginations of millions worldwide since they first appeared in movie theaters in May 1977 and made Star Wars a worldwide phenomenon.
This January, Dark Horse Comics returns the classic era of the original Star Wars film — the Rebel Alliance operating from secret bases, the Galactic Empire striking throughout space, Luke Skywalker discovering how to be a hero, and Darth Vader directing the Imperial war machine — for a book that could only be called Star Wars!
Written by Brian Wood (The Massive, Conan, Northlanders) with art by Carlos D’Anda and a painted cover by legendary artist Alex Ross, Star Wars #1 will make every fan of George Lucas’ space opera feel like an excitable child again!
It’s derring-do on a galactic scale when Dark Horse Comics takes readers back to a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away!
