Each piece of artwork is individually hand signed by legendary comic book writer Stan Lee.

Roy Pritchard, gallery manager for Leeds Castle Galleries, said: “With the much anticipated launch of The Force Awakens, we expect this series of signed limited edition works to fly off the shelves.

“It will appeal to both art collectors and fans of Star Wars alike – giving people a chance to own their own piece of comic book history.”
