Mike Mayhew creates iconic covers for Star Wars prequels re-release

Mayhew Attack of the Clones    Mayhew Revenge of the Sith

Mike Mayhew, illustrator on The Star Wars series for Dark Horse Comics and an incredible cover and interior artist on many major sci-fi and superhero titles, has created new cover artwork for the Star Wars prequels.  Much like the original trilogy received last year, The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith will see their own hardcover editions of their comic book adaptations for your comic book library.

If you couldn’t imagine getting interested in the prequels again, just check out these three beautiful covers.  Mayhew nails both the look and feel of the Star Wars universe and he gets the characters, like Yoda and General Grievous, and the actors behind the characters, all spot-on.

Look for the new editions with Mayhew’s cover art later this year from Marvel Comics.  You can pre-order from Amazon The Phantom Menace here, available May 24, 2016, Attack of the Clones here, available September 6, 2016, and look out for Revenge of the Sith, at the end of the year.  It does not yet have a release date.
