Return to the Classic Star Wars with Dark Horse Comics

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!
