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 December 9th. You may also order it direct from the publisher at the link.
