According to this, it's not an April Fool's prank. Apparently, Dark Horse is going to adapt George Lucas' original Star Wars pitch into a comic book series. If you know anything about how cool Ralph McQuarrie's original concept art was, then you should be excited.

I'm honestly quite thrilled and intrigued by this news. Can't wait to hear more.

Also, Dark Horse is a Portland company, so I'm always happy to hear some good news from them.

They specifically said it wasn't...

Having a disclaimer saying your announcement isn't an April Fool's joke only to have it actually be one would be the dumbest thing ever.

Absolutely. But if was still early on the morning of the second when I questioned it, there was still time for them to say it was a joke.

Interview with Randy Stradley from Dark Horse

I specially liked to read that Lucas is involved with the whole project:

Quote:
This is the first time that we've sort of had personal involvement from George Lucas; he looks over all the different character designs and vehicle designs and location designs and he's picking the ones he's liked. He's steering us toward a vision of what that screenplay might have been like if it had been filmed.
