it will come as no surprise to readers of this blog that I am a fan of lost tales and untold stories. So the announcement of Dark Horse Comics' upcoming adaptation of The Star Wars, George Lucas' rough-draft original screenplay, has me very intrigued. The story involves Jedi Annaikin Starkiller, a six-foot tall lizard-like alien Han Solo and General Luke Skywalker and is apparently quite different from what we saw up on the screen in 1977. I had heard rumors about this early draft for years and it will be cool to finally see it realized. This 8-issue series was announced on April Fool's day, but apparently it is the real deal (It was also announced at WonderCon the day before).
