1st printing. Star Wars and sequential art share a long history: Star Wars debuted on the comic-book page in 1977, when Marvel Comics began publishing an adaptation of the first film, which morphed into a monthly comic book. Now, more than three decades later, Dark Horse Comics continue to expand the Star Wars galaxy. 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 the comics, as well as new work created exclusively for this book by over 20 renowned artists. Star Wars Art: Comics is a tribute to sequential storytelling, a worthy and justly celebrated art form. Cover by Dave Dorman. Foreword by Dennis O'Neil.
