"It could have bombed! It was a comicbook concept, dressed up for the screen. [] Therefore, what could be more proper, more apt, more totally fitting than to present the magic of STAR WARS in comicbook form—and thus do we come full circle!"
―Excerpt of Stan Lee's introduction[src]

The Marvel Comics Illustrated Version of Star Wars is a Legends trade paperback which collects the first six issues of Marvel Comics' Star Wars, adapting the film Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. The book was adapted from George Lucas's script by Roy Thomas, with layouts by Howard Chaykin.
