Issues 1..6 are a novelization of the movie that started it all in 1977, A New Hope. (That is, 115 pages out of 490, if you care to know.)
Then a few issues are about Han Solo and Chewie and a green human-sized carnivorous rabbit, performing some seriously heroic acts, etc.
Lots of fun.
At this rate, I fully expect that the entire set of 107 issues will be available in 4 volumes, and I want them all. Volume 2 will be available in October 2010 and I've already ordered it from this site. Be careful though, there's also an older edition (set of 7 volumes, not 4), with similar titles, containing the same comics, but in smaller installments. I'd make sure to order the second volume from the new edition (Oct 2010, 480 pages, issues 28 to 54 (or around 54, not sure yet)), not from the old one (Aug 2002, 360 pages, issues 21-38)
Since these comics were written before the second and third movie, do expect inconsistencies. For example Jabba makes a tiny appearance and he looks like a seal on two legs rather than the famous snail-like creature from Return of the Jedi.
From an artistic point of view... I've seen better Star Wars comics, where Han and Luke and Leia looked very much like the actors who played them in the movies. It's not the case here. Still, I did enjoy the artwork. It's not bad at all.
