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.
