Unlike the title Classic Star Wars: A New Hope (1994), a reprint of Marvel's version contemporaneous with the film's original release, this is the completely Dark Horse spin on Episode IV created in 1996-1997. It is, strictly speaking, an adaptation of the theatrical-release Special Edition of A New Hope, and thus is frequently referred to (even by Dark Horse) as Star Wars: A New Hope--Special Edition.As of 2005, Dark Horse has created original adaptations of only Episodes I-IV. They have re-released repackaged versions of Marvel's original take on Episodes V and VI (published rather confusingly under a "Special Edition" label), and they've done "alternative universe" versions of Episodes V and VI, but they've not yet done their own adaptation of those movies.
