Sequart Releases Book About Star Wars Comics
Sequart Organization is proud to announce the publication of A Galaxy Far, Far Away: Exploring Star Wars Comics, edited by Rich Handley and Joseph F. Berenato.
Ever since Star Wars hit theaters in 1977, comic books and comic strips have taken the characters beyond the silver screen. Since then, almost 2000 comics have been produced from a variety of publishers, including Marvel Comics, Blackthorne Publishing, the L.A. Times Syndicate, Dark Horse Comics, Scholastic, Tokyopop, and more, addressing every aspect of the Star Wars universe.
A Galaxy Far, Far Away: Exploring Star Wars Comics features insightful, analytical essays examining these comics. From Jaxxon to Cody Sunn-Childe, from Ulic Qel-Droma to Lady Lumiya, find out how comics helped to keep the Star Wars universe alive… and why you’re missing out if you’re not reading them.
The book is available in print and on Kindle. (Just a reminder: you don’t need a Kindle device to read Kindle-formatted books; you can download a free Kindle reader for most computers, phones, and tablets.) It runs 340 pages and features a foreword by comics legend John Ostrander and a cover by Kevin Colden and Miss Lasko-Gross.
Journalists: A .pdf of the book will be sent upon request, and the editors are available for interviews. If interested in either, please send inquiries to sequart[dot]mike[at]gmail[dot]com
Retailers: Please send pricing inquiries to sequart[at]gmail[dot]com
