Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Michael Jung
Adapted directly from George Lucas' original Star Wars Episode IV screenplay (indeed most of the character lines are copied verbatim from the movie script) this graphic novel retells the classic science fiction movie in comic book form. Picking up from the destruction of Princess Lea's home planet of Alderaan by the Empire's Death Star, the comic swiftly moves through Han Solo and Luke Skywalker's attempts to rescue the princess, and Obi Wan Kenobi's final encounter with his former apprentice Darth Vader. As a comic book, the story and art are adequate, yet aside from illustrations of familiar scenes drawn from different angles, it offers virtually nothing new to the now-well known Star Wars story—in fact some of the characters look rather stiff and expressionless compared to their live action counterparts. While an okay addition to a Star Wars fan's collection, readers expecting a new experience will be disappointed. Reviewer: Michael Jung
