Friday’s mega release of all the new merchandise for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker won’t be limited to retail locations. In fact, it’s happening at New York Comic Con too, as Bottleneck Gallery and Acme Archives will have a brand new, limited edition art print based on the upcoming film.

Oh, and they’ll also have several others based on the other films in the saga, too—and io9 has your exclusive reveal of all of them.


Though New York Comic Con begins Thursday, Bottleneck Gallery (located at booth 2160) won’t be able to sell The Rise of Skywalker piece until Force Friday. But here it is nonetheless.


It’s called End of a Saga and it’s by Eric Tan. This piece truly is that, as it completes a trilogy of prints Tan did for the sequel trilogy (he also did similar prints for the original and prequel trilogies). It’s a 12 x 36 inch print in an edition of 300 and costs $50.

“But Germain. I love Star Wars art but I’m only going to be at New York Comic Con on Thursday, what do you have for me?” So, so much dear reader.

For fans of the original trilogy, Bottleneck and Acme will have four new pieces along with some variants. First up is For Luck by Matt Ferguson. Ferguson has a ton of new pieces at NYCC but this is his only Star Wars one, inspired by A New Hope of course. It’s available in three editions. There’s the 36 x 24 inch regular version, in an edition of 300, that costs $50:

The 36 x 24 inch foil version, edition of 150, that costs $60:

Artist Juan Carlos Ruiz Burgos brings everyone’s favorite former Princess (now General, of course) to NYCC in a new poster: Princess Leia Organa, which comes in two editions. Each is a run of 250, 24 x 36 inches, and costs $50.

Besides the colors, the hood is the biggest difference there.

The colors are the main difference in Rule the Empire too, a new print by Tom Walker. This 24 x 36 inch print comes in a blue edition for 250 (which costs $50).

The final print from the original trilogy is a real stunner. It’s called His Deeds Will Not Be Forgiven Until He Merits and it’s by Anthony Petrie. There’s a 24 x 36 inch regular in an edition of 150 (which costs $50).

“Okay Germain, we got it. Rise of Skywalker, original trilogy, but what about me? I like The Last Jedi and The Last Jedi only. Where are some Last Jedi prints?” Well, person-who-totally-exists, Bottleneck and Acme have you covered too. Artist Karl Fitzgerald has done three different pieces based on Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The first two are each 18 x 24 inches in an edition of 150 and cost $50. They’re called Projection...

Oh, and that’s just the Star Wars stuff. If you head to Bottleneck’s website, you will find Avengers: Endgame, Indiana Jones, lots and lots and LOTS of Batman from all eras, even some Disney, Jurassic Park, Back to the Future, Spider-Verse and more. If you’re at NYCC this weekend, you’ve gotta stop by Bottleneck at booth 2160.
