From their very first appearance in Star Wars: A New Hope-in which Darth Vader marched aboard Princess Leia's ship flanked by soldiers in all white-the stromtroopers have created an indelible mark on the galaxy far, far, away. They have gone from the faceless enforcers of Imperial oppression to men conscripted into service with origin stories and the ability to make decisions.
Star Wars: Stromtroopers explores these striking warriors and their evolution in depth for the first time. Trace the roots of their creation and design from the original trilogy; their many iterations in cartoons, comics, novels, and merchandising; their development into a central character; and their resonance within Star Wars fandom.
Filled with photographs, illustrations, storyboards, and other artwork, this lavish book comes complete with removable features-such as a concept sketch, comic strip, replica memorabilia, and more-making it an essential keepsake for every Star Wars fan.
Discover how these instantly recognizable troopers have transcended the screen to become a universal symbol of Star Wars.
