As with all Artist's Edition style books, there will be a wealth of extras, including a superb cover gallery showcasing some of the very earliest examples. With the highly anticipated new film being released in December, the fever-pitch for Star Wars has never been higher!

•What is an Artifact Edition?

•LIKE AN ARTIST'S EDITION, AN ARTIFACT EDITION PRESENTS PAGES SCANNED FROM THE ACTUAL ORIGINAL ART. While the Artist's Edition line produces only complete stories, Artifact Editions allow IDW to present books even if all of the original art cannot be obtained, and will include extras such as advertisements, portfolio pieces, color guides, and more.

•While appearing to be in black & white, each page has been scanned in COLOR to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art—for example, you are able to clearly see paste-overs, blue pencils in the art, editorial notes, art corrections. Each page is printed the same size as drawn, and the paper selected is as close as possible to the original art board.
