We've seen a lot of Star Wars artwork in our time, but this is some of the most dynamic and powerful we've come across recently. Artist Darren Tan, aka WraithDT, created these stunning pictures for the Star Wars Essential Readers Companion — and now he's posted them on his Deviant Art page.

Some of the coolest looks at Thrawn, Mara and some of the other EU characters we've seen. Check out our favorites here, and more at the link. [Darren Tan via Cuded]
