Classic Star Wars: A New Hope (1994) TPB

Notes:
Repackaging the original trilogy—again
This trade was included free-of-charge with Wal Mart Exclusive DVD of the Original and Special Editions of Episode IV.

Like the DVD it came with, it was a combination of elements from the original Marvel film adaptation and the 1994 Dark Horse re-mastered TPB of the original Marvel work. It was, however, a faithful reprinting of neither. Still, of all the "Wal-Mart Exclusives", it came closest to being an exact reprint of a previous work (Classic Star Wars: A New Hope (1994) TPB).

The packaging for the DVD box set was thus inevitably . . . deceptive. It pictured an exact duplication of the cover to Star Wars (1977) #1. In fact, though, the book was a virtual reprint of the trade resulting from Classic Star Wars: A New Hope (1994). The front cover mimicked the 1977 issue, but expunged all references to Marvel Comics. The back cover is a 2006 drawing by Adam Hughes which appears to be his only published representation to date of original trilogy characters Luke and Leia, taken from his cover for Classic Star Wars: A New Hope #2.

This issue is thus a slightly unique book, giving homage to the Marvel original but being most closely derived from the Dark Horse re-mastering of Marvel's work. It may, therefore, one day fetch a different price than other versions of the Dark Horse re-workings of the original Marvel material.

Adair was the editor of the collected edition; Cooper and Martin were the series editors from Dark Horse's Classic Star Wars: A New Hope. Unusually, the true original Marvel editor, Roy Thomas, loses his editor credit in this edition. This is all the more odd, given that Dark Horse's original Classic Star Wars: A New Hope #1 and #2—from which this issue receives the bulk of its source material—did, in fact, credit Thomas as editor.

Page count is approximate.

On the Star Wars reprint trail
In an effort to most accurately represent the multitude Star Wars original trilogy reprints, we've taken pains in this database to link only the closest two editions to each other. Thus, though this issue cites Star Wars (1977) and Classic Star Wars: A New Hope (1994) as the titles from which this issue is taken, we list only the most similar issue from the 1994 title as the reprint source for this issue.

To follow the historical trail of the material in this book, click on the "collects/reprints" link, above, and continue clicking on each new set of "collects/reprints" links with which you are presented. At each stage, you will be given the thing that particular issue most closely reprints.
