30 Pieces of Variant Cover Art for Marvel's STAR WARS #1
Marvel is going to release their Star Wars #1 comic book on January 14th, 2015, and according to reports, it has potential to be the best selling comic in the past two decades. ComicBook.com says that Marvel will sell a million copies of the comic when when it's released next year. It's hard to tell if that will actually be the case, but I guess it could happen.
These comics will be set shortly after the destruction of the first Death Star in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. So it takes place between then and The Empire Strikes Back. There are three comics that are being coordinated with Lucasfilm to make sure that they line up with both the original films and whatever is coming in Episode VII, VIII, IX and whatever else Lucasfilm in planning.
Princess Leia #1, kicking off a five-issue miniseries in March, 2015 by writer Mark Waid and artist Terry Dodson.
Star Wars #1, launching in January, 2015 from writer Jason Aaron and artist John Cassaday.
Darth Vader #1, following close behind in February, 2015 by Kieron Gillen with art by Salvador Larroca.
The comic publisher is also offering a ton of variant covers for the comic. I've included thirty of them here for you to check out! I'm sure there will be more to come.
