Marvel Comics today announced their first Star Wars publication since Walt Disney Pictures purchased Lucasfilm in 2012. "Star Wars: The Original Marvel Years Omnibus" will hits shelves early next year and will represent issues #1-44 and Annual #1 of the original 1977 Marvel Comics series. Check out the cover art below!

The opening volume begins with the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope and ends with Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back. In between, the rebels face a wealth of new perils from space pirate Crimson Jack to the bounty hunter Beilert Valance, as well as a surprisingly svelte Jabba the Hut (one "t"). Luke goes back to Tatooine, Leia battles alone, Han and Chewie play the deadly Big Game, and Darth Vader hunts for answers!

"With Star Wars poised to return to its comic book home, what better time to revisit the first adventures of Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca, C-3PO, R2-D2 and, of course, Darth Vader?" says Marvel Editor In Chief, Axel Alonso. "I am extremely proud to present these original Star Wars stories, told as only Marvel can, in the first in a massive and glorious Omnibus series."

"Star Wars: The Original Marvel Years" Omnibus arrives in January 2015 and is written by Roy Thomas, Howard Chaykin, Archie Goodwin, Jo Duffy & Chris Claremont, with pencils by Howard Chaykin, Carmine Infantino, Walter Simonson, Herb Trimpe, Michael Golden, Al Williamson and Mike Vosburg. Each copy will also be wrapped in a cover by Howard Chaykin and Greg Hilderbrandt.
