Marvel has released a pair of Stuarrt Immonen’s sketchbook images for the upcoming Star Wars #8 comic, the next installment of “Marvel’s most talked-about ongoing series”.
The images released on Marvel.com were accompanied by an interview with Immonen himself, who will team up with regular writer Jason Aaron as the new creative team on the series. In the interview Immonen spoke about how he got involved in the series and his excitement at the prospect of being involved. He continued to say that “unquestionably” his favorite film of the franchise was Episode IV, calling it an “endlessly, effortlessly entertaining movie.”
Immonen explained: “There’s a lightness in the dialogue and performances, and the concepts and designs and shooting style are still fresh and new almost forty years later. The other films undoubtedly make for a richer experience, but all the seeds are present in Episode IV.”
