Dark Horse Comics has printed a lot of Star Wars comics over the years. They’ve done regular issues, issues with heavy carded stock covers, omnibuses, trade paperbacks, hardcover omnibuses, hardcover trade paperbacks and large format hardcovers. However, I don’t think any of them have been as fancy as The Star Wars Deluxe HC Edition. Click here to read our full review.

Dark Horse Comics has three new Star Wars releases today including the deluxe, oversized hardcover version of The Star Wars, the third trade paperback volume of the Legacy series, and the final issue of Star Wars.

The Star Wars Deluxe HC

Before Star Wars, there was The Star Wars! This is the official adaptation of George Lucas’s rough-draft screenplay for what would become Star Wars—the film that changed motion pictures and the world. You’ll see familiar characters and places—but not all is the same in this long-ago and faraway galaxy. Still, strap yourself in for high adventure and lazersword duels, Jedi Knights, Princess Leia, Han Solo, and a battle to defeat the evil Empire!
