Al Williamson's career is crammed full of amazing accomplishments: star artist for the EC Comics line while barely in his twenties, drawing the definitive comic-book version of Alex Raymond's Flash Gordon, producing the X-9: Secret Agent Corrigan comic strip for 10 years, plus many more!
Williamson's classic run on Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back is legendary among fans of classic comic art. His heroic adventure style was perfectly suited for the Star Wars franchiseso much so that Williamson was George Lucas' first choice for the Star Wars newspaper comic strip (which he would later go on to draw).
This incredible Artist's Edition collects the entire Empire Strikes Back film adaptation (Originally published in Star Wars #39 44), plus the complete Star Wars #98, a Han Solo adventure. Additionally, select pages from Return of the Jedi and other Star Wars pages and pin-ups by Al Williamson are featured. The Force is strong in this book, don't you dare miss it!
