Thirty-five (35). That’s the number of covers for Star Wars #1 from Marvel Comics. That includes fourteen covers under the standard solicitation model, plus special retailer exclusives, and Dynamic Forces special sketch and signed editions.
Suddenly that one million copy mark is a bit more understandable, huh?
Star Wars fansite RebelScum.com did the heavy lifting, finding every offered and revealed cover so far for the issue, which brings the franchise back to Marvel Comics after more than two decades at Dark Horse. Marvel, now being a sister company to Lucasfilm under the Disney umbrella, originally had the Star Wars license more than thirty years ago, and in addition to copious covers for the issue, has also launched a “Welcome Home” campaign, where other series will also get variants themed to the return, including covers that link together to show famous Marvel superheroes standing in line for, naturally, Star Wars.
Head over to see the various covers (as assembled in the grid above), and the full list of retailer exclusives in addition to the solicited covers, detailed here by RebelScum:
”Solicited variant covers from Marvel (besides the generic John Cassady cover) include: J. Scott Campbell connecting cover (1:50 availability ratio), John Cassady Teaser (1:25), Bob McLeod (1:25), a photo/movie variant, with Luke looking into sunset (1:15), Joe Quesada (1:100), Joe Quesada sketch version (1:500), Alex Ross (1:50), Alex Ross sketch version (1:200), Sara Pichelli (1:20), Skottie Young connecting cover (orders must match 150% of Original Sin #8), John Tyler Christopher (exclusive Jaxxon version available at Star Wars #1 Launch Parties), an Action Figure version, also by John Tyler Christopher (orders must match 200% of Original Sin #8) and a blank Sketch Cover (orders must match 150% of Original Sin #8) for collectors to get their own variant versions created.”
