A new free web comic adapts Star Wars: A New Hope into graphic novel form. But what makes this version different? It’s told from Luke’s perspective!
Released in 1977, Star Wars become a huge success. It’s plain for all too see how that one film started a multi-million dollar universe.
A new online comic, in this case known as a webtoon, is retelling the story of Star Wars all over again but this time from Luke Skywalker’s perspective. What makes this version a little different is that the story begins when Luke is just seven years old.
The story will be well known to any Star Wars fan but there are little moments that have been mentioned before but never realized. For example you’ll get to see Luke fly his T-16 Skyhopper through Beggars Canyon, racing against his childhood friend Biggs Darklighter.
The comic has been created by Korean artist Hong Jac-Ga with the help of Lucasfilm. This means that the events that occur in this story are now considered canon. The original Korean version of the online comic premiered in April and will run for ten months. A new issue is set to appear every Thursday and Sunday.
