Exclusive Star Wars poster

“I’ve seen this raw strength only once before. It didn’t scare me enough then. It does now.”

Today we are proud to reveal the official poster for Echo Base Charity Con! The gorgeous artwork on the poster – carrying the title “Evolution of Luke Skywalker” – was made by Stephen B.

Art Grafunkel was responsible for making up the lay-out.
