- "When Star Wars took the world by storm in 1977, Marvel Comics was right there with exciting comic adaptations and new stories set in a galaxy far, far away. With new Star Wars comics being published by Marvel in 2015, we're proud to look back on this exciting remastered adaptation of the original film, with remastered adaptations of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi coming later in 2015."
- ―David Gabriel, Marvel Comics SVP of Sales and Marketing
Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope is a collection of Star Wars #1–6. A remastered adaptation of the comics, it was released by Marvel Comics in hardcover on May 6, 2015 and was published in paperback on December 7, 2016.
The original comic adaptation of the greatest space-fantasy film of all is remastered for the modern age with all-new coloring by Chris Sotomayor! Weeks before George Lucas' first STAR WARS film hit theatres, Marvel gave fans their first look at Luke Skywalker, boldly asking: "Will he save the galaxy, or destroy it?" You may know the answer, but that doesn't spoil the fun of seeing STAR WARS: EPISODE IV — A NEW HOPE like never before… including scenes that never made the silver screen! When Princess Leia is taken prisoner, Luke, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO and R2-D2 ride to the rescue and take on Darth Vader in his awesome Death Star. It's six against a galaxy — one that's far, far away and a long time ago! May the Force be with you, in the mighty Marvel manner!
