Description

This special 240-page limited edition includes 5 hand-signed, archival-quality 10 X 12" gicle prints, as well as 40 exclusive artworks and 50 extra pages showing artists' processes and sketches. "Star Wars" and comics share a history as long as the "Star Wars Saga" itself: "Star Wars" debuted both on the silver screen and the printed page in 1977, when, a few months after the first film's premiere, Marvel Comics began publishing a monthly series inspired by the characters, worlds, and adventures of "Episode IV: A New Hope". Soon, a daily comic strip followed, and now, more than three decades later, countless ongoing and limited comic-book series from Dark Horse Comics continue to enrich and expand "the Star Wars" Galaxy. "Star Wars Art: Comics" brings together the very best artwork from the entire history of "Star Wars" comics publishing, including original and finished art from the top comics artists, cartoonists, painters, and illustrators working in the industry. Hand-selected and curated by George Lucas, this volume includes pencil roughs, inked pages, concept art, and fully painted covers and interior art from the original Marvel Comics series, "The Star Wars" comic strip, more than two decades of "Star Wars" comics from Dark Horse Comics, and officially licensed Japanese manga. Featuring the work of Howard Chaykin, Al Williamson, Gene Colan, Dave Cockrum, Drew Struzan, Carmine Infantino, and many more, "Star Wars Art: Comics" is a celebration of the worldwide inspiration that is "Star Wars", as well as a look at the creative process behind the page.
