Back in February, artist Wayne Dorrington proved to us that when it comes to Star Wars: Episode IV, words are unnecessary. (Of course, when it comes to Star Wars: Episode IV, some of us think that special editions are unnecessary, but that's a whole different story.)

Now Dorrington has decided to tackle Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, retelling the tale with icons. Or as he calls it, in "iconscope."

Comparing this creation to his first, he writes:

"This one is also twice as long to get all the plot in—I tried cutting it down to a shorter length, but it then didn't make sense, so in the end I created two parts to make it a little more manageable to 'read.'"

Check both parts out below. You can click on the images below to see slightly larger versions, but if you want to see them at full size, head on over to Dorrington's blog.
