Barnes & Noble reveals exclusive 2-sided poster of Star Wars Battlefront II: Inferno Squad


Barnes & Noble’s exclusive 2-sided poster of the cover of Star Wars Battlefront II: Inferno Squad by Christie Golden features editor’s notes.

Star Wars Battlefront II: Inferno Squad by Christie Golden goes on-sale on July 25. Barnes and Noble is tempting readers to buy their version of the book with an exclusive 2-sided poster. The poster features Inferno Squad‘s gorgeous cover art in full color on one, and the same artwork annotated with editorial comments on the other.

Check out the two sides as pictured on B&N’s official Sci-Fi & Fantasy blog below.

The editorial notes on the second side down read:

"“Possible to add some TIES & one chasing a Y-wing”“Per LucasfilmUse flag from sketch 2Adjust buildings to match provided reference”“Per EAAdd Inferno Squad logo to helmet”"

I love the notes. They are a fun glimpse into the process of designing a book poster. The cool thing about this poster, though, is if you prefer artistry over commentary, you can just flip the poster over and display the Inferno Squad cover art instead. Win-win!

Star Wars Battlefront II: Inferno Squad is a tie-in novel to EA’s upcoming installment of the Battlefront video game. The story, written by experienced Star Wars author Christie Golden (Dark Disciple), is set directly after the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. It follows a team of elite Imperial agents whose mission is to infiltrate a rebel cell.
