AL WILLIAMSON EMPIRE ADAPTATION


It was a thrill for me back in 2000 when I met the amazing Al Williamson at the San Diego Comic-Con. He signed for me the first issue of his Empire Strikes Back adaptation.


Later that day, I ran into him on the convention floor and started up a simple and short conversation. It was one of the highlights of the convention.

A great adaptation. I bought the paperback sized collection and was so relieved to find it in color. Marvel's tiny collection of the first movie being in badly repro'd b&w.

Al was the perfect Star Wars artist!

Signed copy, bet you are treasuring that one.

Cheers!

Hard to believe that he just passed away. He was the greatest.

Yeah, very sad that he's gone. Yes, one of the greatest.
