*Artist MIKE MAYHEW makes his Amazing Comic Con debut in Las Vegas! Mayhew’s stylestyle which employs a fusion of photo realism with traditional comic storytelling has thrilled crowds for years. He has extensive credits inside the world of STAR WARS starting years back when Dark Horse was publishing the Lucas brand. Here he completed a number of covers and projects, with the most prominent being THE STAR WARS- a mini based on the original George Lucas Screen Play First Draft, which won a number of industry awards.
More recently Mike Mayhew is one of the very few artists who followed the Star Wars franchise from the previous publisher to the new regime at Marvel. Here, he completed fill in issues of the main series, #15, 20, and Annual 2- all which were written by fellow guest Jason Aaron. He has contributed additional covers to the regular series as well.
