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.
