Translated into limited edition art for the first time in collaboration with Marvel's fine art publisher, Choice Fine Art and Acme Archives, this collection of Star Wars comic book covers printed by Marvel celebrates one of the most famous film franchises of all time and encapsulates the battle between good and evil, for which both Star Wars and Marvel are recognised.
It is rumoured that George Lucas initially approached Stan Lee in the mid-1970s when the first of the Star Wars film was still in production. With a timeless concept, complex, well-drawn characters and an underlying battle between good and evil, Stan Lee – who is responsible for the creation some of the most iconic superheroes in popular culture today - recognised something special in the burgeoning franchise, and so the Star Wars Marvel comic series was born. Published between 1977 - 1986, it was the first official comic book adaptation of Star Wars and the meeting of minds between two highly influential creative talents proved a to be a smash hit on its release.
Penned and inked by some of the greatest comic book artists and illustrators, including Carmine Infantino, Walt Simonson and Al Williamson, and chosen, curated and hand-signed by Stan Lee, this collection pays tribute to some of the most memorable Star Wars characters. Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, the Stormtroopers, R2-D2, C-3P0 and the greatest villain of all time, Darth Vader, all make an appearance in the series.
