“The Force is strong with this #1″
[dropcap size=small]I[/dropcap]t has been over 27 years since a Star Wars comic has been published by Marvel, but thanks to Disney’s acquisition of both Marvel and Lucasfilm, the beloved franchise has officially left Dark Horse and will see a new run next year.
Entertainment Weekly has revealed an exclusive look at artistic genius Alex Ross’s variant cover for the upcoming Star Wars #1, and it is a beauty. The variant pays homage to Howard Chaykin’s cover art for the first issue of the iconic 1977 Star Wars run published by Marvel and is sure to be a collector’s item. Have a look at Ross and Chaykin’s covers below.
The new series will launch in January 2015 and will be penned by Jason Aaron with art by John Cassaday.
Looking forward to seeing new adventures with Luke, Leia, and Han? You rebel scum!
