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

One of comics’ most acclaimed writers, Dennis O’Neil worked briefly in journalism, then moved to New York and began working in comics. O’Neil brought social consciousness to the medium with the groundbreaking Green Lantern/Green Arrow series. His work on Batman—as writer and editor—returned that character to its dark, gothic roots. He lives in New York City. Douglas Wolk is the author of the Eisner Award and Harvey Award-winning Reading Comics: How Graphic Novels Work and What They Mean. He writes about comic books and popular culture for the New York Times, Rolling Stone, Time, and elsewhere. He lives in Portland, Oregon. Virginia Mecklenburg is a senior curator at the Smithsonian American Art Museum and a writer and lecturer who specializes in American art of the twentieth century. Her books include Telling Stories: Norman Rockwell from the Collections of George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, Modern Masters: American Abstraction at Midcentury, and Edward Hopper: The Watercolors. Mecklenburg received B.A. and M.A. degrees from the University of Texas at Austin and a Ph.D. from the University of Maryland. Before joining the Smithsonian American Art Museum, she taught art history at the University of Maryland. She lives in Washington, D.C.

  • BEWARE of Bad Packaging

    I ordered this as a gift and would caution others against ordering this book, or others like it, from Overstock because the packaging was not done well, and as a result the brand-new book came out of the box slightly bent along the top and corners. It should've been easy to prevent this mistake, as the shipping box was too large for the item and just needed some extra cushioning. Pretty disappointed with the condition of this item and likely won't be ordering from here again.
