Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]
Feast your eyes on a stellar gallery of artwork by some of the industry's leading talents from the Marvel comics books that have explored – and expanded – the galaxy far, far away! From an initial look at the incredible artistic legacy of Marvel's original Star Wars series, join us in a visual tour through some of the many titles published since the greatest space opera of all returned to the House of Ideas. This volume puts the focus firmly on the multiple series that picked up the story following the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, renewing the epic power struggle between the Rebel Alliance and the Empire with new tales starring Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Darth Vader and more!
Gaze in wonder at stunning illustrations by the artists who have worked on the ongoing Star Wars series – including John Cassaday, Stuart Immonen, Mike Deodato Jr., Leinil Francis Yu and Jorge Molina – and savor the immense contribution made by Salvador Larroca, who followed a 25-issue run on Darth Vader with his own lengthy stint on the main book! Then, enjoy the diverse styles of Terry Dodson, Mark Brooks, Phil Noto and Alex Maleev, who each put the focus on a different iconic character in four limited series: Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca and Lando! The breakout star of Darth Vader, "rogue archaeologist" Doctor Aphra, figures prominently with artwork from her own series drawn by Kev Walker and Emilio Laiso. And then there's the ever-growing set of ultra-collectible action figure variant covers by John Tyler Christopher!
Featuring the best pages, covers and behind-the-scenes sketches – plus commentary from the artists and the writers they've collaborated with – this is the ultimate visual celebration of Star Wars and Marvel.
