One of the best things I can say about the Star Wars license moving to Marvel is some of the truly amazing artwork we’ve seen with the cover art. One artist in particular who really stands out is Gabriele Dell’Otto. Born in 1973, this 42 year old Italian artist has a remarkable skill with paints that makes comic covers look like fine art. And that’s because they are. Both an author and an illustrator, Dell’Otto has done covers for Marvel, DC, IPP, Egmont Ehapa and MG Publishing as well as scientific illustrations and historical calendars. But the thing that caught my eye was the variant covers he did for Marvel’s Princess Leia mini-series. They’re absolutely gorgeous. So today we’re spotlighting the Star Wars artwork of Gabriele Dell’Otto. Enjoy!
