The Star Wars, Concluded

Well, Dark Horse Comics has released the concluding issue in its adaptation of the very earliest draft of George Lucas' The Star Wars, and the best thing I can say about it is, "Well, it was...interesting."

In one of the letters to the editors in the back of the magazine, it is observed that this script was adapted from a very rough draft, and that the story went through several massive rewrites before it made it to the screen.  Thank God for whoever George had helping him edit this, because this version would have gone down in a blaze of obscurity.

When I heard that Dark Horse was coming out with a comic book adaptation of George Lucas' original draft of what became Star Wars, I was really excited.  I had been speculating about what was Lucas' original intent for years, and now we were about to find out.


It was with a sense of reverence that I obtained the first installment and read it.  The art was breathtaking.  But the story...well, I told myself, they're just setting things up.  Surely it will get better.

I hold in my hot little hands (okay, my cotton gloved little hands) a shiny new comic book--the first issue of Dark Horse Comics' adaptation of George Lucas' orginal script treatment "The Star Wars." This would be re-written to become the movie that launched a thousand ships. It takes place longer ago, in a galaxy even further away...
