Marvel Comics seem to be really working the Star Wars license. Their latest republication of old material includes "remastering" of the vintage SW, ESB, and RoTJ comics...it looks like they're taking the old line-art and digitally recolouring it.

If it brings those pages to the attention of new (and younger) fans, then all good, but that doesn't crossover all that well, does it?

TBH, I agree...I prefer the original, but think it's an interesting idea ...the ESB adaptation, with Al Williamson's art, looks a little better:
