So special is this Special Edition motion picture that Dark Horse is releasing it simultaneously as a four-issue, monthly comics series and as a single-volume, trade paperback collection. The covers of the four-issue series are each painted by Dave Dorman, and, when placed beside one another, they form one massive Star Wars image with the Death Star at the center. Experience it again, for the very first time.

Adapts what used to be, but is no longer officially called, the "Special Edition" of Episode IV. Look, in other words, for Greedo to shoot first.

Oddly, Dark Horse released the trade before releasing all of the monthlies.

Includes the four covers Dave Dorman did for the original mini-series, uncluttered with cover copy. Introduction by Bob Cooper
