The critically acclaimed and highly anticipated Star Wars #1, written by Brian Wood, has officially sold out of its first printing and will be going for a second run next month!
Set in the classic era with classic characters, this all-new Star Wars features artist Carlos D’Anda (Batman: Arkham City) with covers by the legendary Alex Ross. The initial print run of this smash-hit issue came complete with a download code for a free digital issue of the comic through Dark Horse Digital.
This is Star Wars as you remember it . . . and as you have never seen it before! Dark Horse is taking you back to those heady, adventure-filled days following the destruction of the Death Star—when the Empire ruled, the Rebels were on the run, and the galaxy was a dangerous place where anything might happen!
While a second printing is in the works, hurry now to your local comics retailer and grab a copy from the first print run before they’re gone for good!
To add to the excitement, Dark Horse also announced that it will produce special variant covers for Star Wars #1–#4, which will be consecutively tied to issues #4–#7. These special variant comics will feature artist Alex Ross’s original cover sketches!
Check out the first variant cover below, then head over to Comic Book Resources to see the other three. Then come back for next week's Secret Identity podcast to hear Matman review issue #1!
