Ten years after the release of Return of the Jedi, the Topps Company reintroduced the Star Wars universe to collectors with a series of trading cards. Illustrated by the biggest names in science fiction, fantasy and comics - including Kyle Baker, Moebius, Jon J Muth, William Stout and Walter Simonson - George Lucas’s galaxy is reinterpreted in each artist’s style, portraying favourite characters, re-creating classic moments, and even inventing new scenes the illustrators always wanted to see. These trading-card images became instant fan favourites and the benchmark for visual reinterpretations of Star Wars to come. For the first time, this collection showcases the complete New Visions series; rare promotional images; an introduction and commentary by Gary Gerani; and an afterword by Drew Struzan, and cover art by Joseph Smith.
