This original pencilled-and-inked artwork is drawn on Bristol board by penciller Mike Vosburg and inker Steve Leialoha. The page shows “Star Wars” stamped at the top, and it has been signed by Steve Leialoha in the top right corner. A single speech balloon is pasted on the center panel next to the Majestrix, and is noted by the editor in blue pencil on the right side of the page. On the back of the artwork is a Marvel Comics Group stamp.
Included with the lot is a reference copy of Star Wars Annual #1, the comic book in which this art was originally published. Inker Steve Leialoha also added a little inside joke to this page. Leialoha felt that Princess Leia’s hair buns resembled Minnie Mouse’s ears, so in the final panel he added whiskers to Leia’s shadow as an homage to the Disney character. Some white-out correction fluid is present, along with aged tape on the back. The artwork shows a cut at the top right corner, but it remains in very good condition. Dimensions: 40 cm x 27 cm (15 ¾” x 10 ½”)
