A stunning collection of untold fables, myths, and folklore from the edge of the galaxy. Beautifully illustrated, this unique treasury of in-world space tales takes readers to the far reaches of the Star Wars universe…including to the remote outer rim world of Batuu from Galaxy’s Edge.

Star Wars: Artist’s Edition – Walter Simonson
(IDW Publishing)
Comics legends Walter Simonson and Tom Palmer collaborated on a wonderful run of Star Wars comics in the early 1980s, before the release of The Empire Strikes Back. Like all Artist’s Editions, each page has been meticulously scanned from the original art (from the personal archives of both artists) and presented at 100 percent of actual size.

You will be able to find these on sale from your usual high street bookstores, news-stands and online retailers.
