Well, I just finished the first issue of The Star Wars, and I've got to say, it was a breath of fresh air!

It's based on Lucas' original rough draft of the story from 1974, years before it became the film that we all know and love. It's vastly different, featuring different takes on familiar characters, locations, vehicles and story, but at the same time it feels more like what it felt like to watch the movie for the first time.
It reads in large part like a Buck Rogers serial (which was the entire point of Lucas' story,) and features gorgeous art by Mike Mayhew in the style of Ralph McQuarrie's original concept designs for Lucas.

I highly recommend it!
