The latest (and now fully "official") Star Wars comic will be out on Wednesday. Star Wars #1 takes place between A New Hope and Empire Strikes back. Working on this comic are two creators generally considered top-tier talent working in comics. Jason Aaron is the writer, while John Cassaday is the artist.
Not only are we getting a brand new Star Wars comic, but Marvel is also going all-out for it. The above image you see is one of 100 rumoured cover variants for this comic. The image you see is by Alex Ross, which is a painted cover, but you can see another 60-variants here. Most of these variants would be retailer specific, meaning if a retailer orders enough comics they get to have their own variant cover.
Overall, it appears that this comic will be well over the one-million-comics-sold mark at the time of release. You can pick up your own copy on Wednesday, which is new comic day in most areas. There is a big of a "preview" here, just showing you the first few pages of the comic itself. We hope to have an initial review up as well once the comic is out.
I plan on picking up a copy myself, but not sure which covers will be available at my local store. Anyone else looking to pick one up?
