From THE STAR WARS #2, published by Dark Horse Comics
This will most likely be the last year that Dark Horse Comics is at the helm of the Star Wars comics franchise. There’s no doubt that Dark Horse will make the most of 2014. But you would think that perhaps Disney could still work with Dark Horse considering how well Dark Horse has managed Star Wars comics.
Press release dated today from Dark Horse Comics publisher Mike Richardson:
George Lucas’s original-draft screenplay for THE STAR WARS is to be adapted by J. W. Rinzler and Mike Mayhew. That is great news for fans and can’t help but be “the biggest event in the history of Star Wars comics,” as Dark Horse Comics puts it. Jonathan W. Rinzler is an author and editor for Lucas Licensing’s book division. Mike Mayhew is a world-renowned illustrator who creates some of the most exciting images in comics today.
