The Empire Needs You: Propaganda Posters

A few people on the Twitter sent us a link to some absolutely amazing Star Wars propaganda posters designed by the ridiculously talented comic illustrator Cliff Chiang.

You can find a few more, including posters for the dastardly Rebel Alliance where we first saw them here.

Thanks to Cliff for giving us permission to post these!
