This Star Wars/Indiana Jones mashup is by Paul Gulacy
Some of you may remember my review last year on the first book in the Star Wars Art Series, Visions -- well, now Lucasfilm and Abrams Publishing have released the second book in the series, Star Wars Art: Comics!
Bringing together the very best from the entire history of Star Wars comics as well as a dazzling collection of new art created just for the book, Star Wars Art: Comics features pieces from comic luminaries such as Al Williamson, Adam Hughes, John Cassaday, Sam Kieth, Mike Mignola, Paul Pope, Frank Quitely, Dave Dorman, Bill Sienkiewicz, and many more. Best of all, the art in Star Wars Art: Comics was hand-picked and curated by George Lucas!
The illustrations from Star Wars Art: Comics are all beautiful, hilarious, and thought provoking! Once again, Lucasfilm has outdone itself with this book. My favorite one is by Paul Gulacy, where Han Solo and Chewie are running away from the Death Star just like Indiana Jones ran away from that huge stone ball in Raiders. They just can't seem to shake these things -- so frakking funny and going on my wall!
And don't just take my word for it -- here's what my MTV designers had to say about the book:
"This stuff is sick."
"I love the pencil sketches."
Ok maybe they're not the most talkative but you get my drift!! Check this book out!

Star Wars Art: Comics is available now at Amazon! The book is hardcover with jacket, 180 pages with 150 color illustrations.
