Star Wars: A New Hope - The Special Edition by Bruce Jones

When George Lucas made the first Star Wars motion picture, a scene was shot wherein Han Solo met Jabba the Hutt. But as any Star Wars fan knows, Jabba didn't appear until the third film, Return of the Jedi. Lucas had hit the technological wall -- he couldn't craft Jabba the way he wanted, so he simply removed the scene from his initial, ground-breaking movie. Two decades later he that footage -- with a young Harrison Ford portraying a brash Han Solo -- and added Jabba to it. The result is incredible. The hair will stand up on the back of your neck, and you'll feel twenty years younger as you experience that remarkable thrill all over again. That's the same feeling you'll have as you read this adaptation of Star Wars: A New Hope. Crafted completely from scratch by Bruce Jones, Eduardo Barreto, and longtime Star Wars artist Al Williamson, with a stunning cover by Greg and Tim Hildebrandt, this adaptation includes the new scenes from the Special Edition. Experience it again, for the very first time. From Goodreads.

This was okay but it is a well know story. I would most likely have enjoyed it more if I had read a paper copy. I have no problem reading books in e-book format but even though I read this on my iPad, it just didn't have the right graphic novel feel to it which means it took a bit longer for me to read than a graphic novel normally would.
