'Stars Wars' Comic Series Based On George Lucas' OG Rough Screenplay Is Coming

Dark Horse Comics is set to roll out a new 8-issue series adapted from Stars Wars creator George Lucas’ original, rough-draft screenplay, dubbed The Star Wars. In it, the franchise’s most recognized characters are shown in a much different light.

There’s Annikin Starkiller, who is the hero; Luke Skywalker is a wizened Jedi general; Han Solo is a lizard-like alien; and Darth Vader isn’t the imposing Sith Lord we’ve all been introduced to over the years.ย In fact, Vader is nothing more than a Imperial Army general, who is still fearsome, but is without a mask and his burned face. Instead, he rocks a single scar on his left cheek.

In an interview with USA Today, series artist Mike Mayhew says Darth Vader — in the new series — is actually a mix of this early incarnation and two other characters to be introduced in The Star Wars, including a “man-machine” character and a Sith, “who all have elements of the Vader we all know and love.”

The Star Wars is slated to drop September 4th. For more info, visit DarkHorse.com.
