Gosh comics have announced a great sounding signing for mid-January - it's ticketed (and tickets were available from yesterday) so you may have to hurry - the facebook page is here
This is what they have to say about the it all...
We’ll have a stellar line-up of concept artists and designers from Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker here to speak about their work and sign copies of The Art of Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker on Friday 17th January 2020, 7.30-9pm!
It’s been a long time coming, but final chapter of the Star Wars saga (the Star Wars heptalogy?) hits screens on the 20th December courtesy of director JJ Abrams and a small army of creative folks who work all hours of the given day to entertain us.
As with previous films, Phil Szostak has put together an exhaustive tour through the artwork that informs whats up on the big screen. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, like every chapter before it, owes its visual language and fully imagined cinematic landscape to an incomparable art department: The Lucasfilm “visualists.” Good for us then that plenty of those talented folks are based right here in the UK, and we're lucky enough to be hosting a number of them for a Q&A session and signing. Adam Brockbank (concept artist), Bob Cheshire (concept artist), Glyn Dillon (senior costume concept artist), Kevin Jenkins (production designer), Jake Lunt-Davies (creature concept artist), John McCoy (concept artist) and Calum Alexander Watt (costume concept artist) will all be present here in-store to talk about their process working on the film, as well as take your questions, along with special guest moderator (and former Star W rs comic writer) Kieron Gillen! There will also be an opportunity to get copies of The Art of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker signed by this incredible roster of talent.
The book comes out on the 20th December, but if you’re happy to wait you can pre-order a signed copy for collection or mail-order after the event right now via our website.
