San Diego Comic Art Gallery Presents The Comic Book Art of Star Wars

New Exhibit & Star Wars Artifact Edition Launch Party

The San Diego Comic Art Gallery (SDCAG) is proud to announce the Comic Book Art of Star Wars exhibition, which will run from November 21st through January 31st, 2016. The exhibit will feature 30 pieces of rare Star Wars original art from the very first comic book series that was released by Marvel Comics in 1977.

The majority of these originals are from the first six issues, which adapted the blockbuster George Lucas film. Included in this landmark display are many key and historically significant pages.

Most art featured in this stunning exhibition are by renowned comic artist Howard Chaykin, who will be on hand at the SDCAG on Saturday, November 21st from 5:00 to 8:00 PM, signing copies of the Star Wars Artifact Edition. This Artifact Edition is a 12″ x 17” oversized hardcover art book and features an incredible selection of Star Wars pages. Additionally, the book will include many other pieces of Star Wars art not in the exhibition

Each page of the Star Wars Artifact Edition is scanned from the actual original art and printed same size as the physical art boards. While appearing to be in black and white, an Artifact Edition features art scanned in color so all the subtle nuances of original art are clearly visible to the reader, including white out, blue pencil editorial notations, paste-over corrections and more.

The Star Wars Artifact Edition is the ultimate holiday gift for Jedi’s of all ages, and will be available at the SDCAG from November 21st, and in finer comic book shops on 12/9. You may also order it direct from the IDW Publishing.
