Marvel has announced it will release new oversized editions of the original Marvel Comic adaptations of the Star Wars trilogy, with remastered coloring, starting in May with Star Wars: Episode IV--A New Hope.
The A New Hope original graphic novel adaptation was written Roy Thomas with art by Howard Chaykin, and included scenes that didn’t make it to the theatrical cut. The story’s art has been remastered for the modern age by Marvel colorist Chris Sotomayor (Ms. Marvel, Captain Marvel). It will feature a new cover by Adi Granov (Iron Man, Nova).
On the new Star Wars titles front, Marvel recently confirmed that initial orders on the new Star Wars #1 have topped one million copies (see "Marvel Confirms 'Star Wars' #1 Orders"). Marvel is planning a launch party for the new series in January (see "'Star Wars' #1 Launch Party").
