Star Wars and sequential art share a long history: Star Wars debuted on the comic-book page in 1977, when Marvel Comics began publishing a six-part adaptation of the first film, which morphed into a monthly comic book. Now, more than three decades later, new series by Dark Horse Comics continue to expand the Star Wars galaxy. The second book in the Star Wars Art series, Star Wars Art: Comics brings together the very best artwork from the entire history of Star Wars comics publishing, showcasing original art from the top comics artists working in the industry. Hand-selected and curated by George Lucas, the art featured in this volume includes interior pages and fully painted covers from artists such as Al Williamson, Howard Chaykin, Adam Hughes, Bill Sienkiewicz, Dave Dorman, and many more—as well as new work created exclusively for this book by over 20 renowned artists, including John Cassaday, Sam Kieth, Mike Mignola, Paul Pope, Frank Quitely, Jim Steranko, and other comics superstars. Star Wars Art: Comics is a tribute to sequential storytelling, a worthy and justly celebrated art form. Praise for Star Wars Art: Comics: “George Lucas has left no medium unused, as this visually arresting compendium proves.” —Entertainment Weekly

This is one book no Star Wars aficionado can afford to miss! In 1977, the same year the film was released, Marvel Comics launched Star Wars as a comic book. Adapted by Roy Thomas and Howard Chaykin, the comic series ignited the imaginations of countless readers across the globe, becoming part of the phenomenon that was spawned by George Lucas' smash-hit and record-breaking film! The Star Wars Artisan Edition is an art book collecting more than 100 pages from the earliest stories, many from the first 10 issues, and each page has been painstakingly scanned from the original art. While appearing to be in black and white, the pages are printed in color, allowing the reader a rare glimpse of what original art looks like--complete with blue pencil notations, corrections, white-out--all the little nuances that make a page of original comic art unique. Besides Howard Chaykin, pages by comic legends Walter Simonson and Michael Golden are also included in this volume. As an added bonus, there is a beautiful foldout of Howard Chaykin's gorgeous Star Wars painting that was used to announce the film at the 1976 San Diego Comic Convention.
