Description

    Carmine Infantino - Original Cover Art for Star Wars Weekly #68 (Marvel, 1979). Marvel Comics' U.K. division published their own weekly Star Wars magazine, reprinting the American monthly Star Wars series, beginning in 1978, soon after the release of the first movie. This cover is by master comic illustrator, Carmine Infantino, who handled many of the early Star Wars comic book covers, features a striking visage of Darth Vader, light saber in hand. Once again, Infantino demonstrates his virtuosity with all things mechanical and with the worlds he draws directly from his fertile imagination. The overall art size is approximately 11" x 17" with a 10" x 13.75" image area. The work shows some slight aging generally, but it has been well preserved with little wear and tear. Includes the original logo and indicia paste-ups. There are some printer notes along the bottom edge, outside of the image area.
