This is the beginning of new era in Star Wars. Dark Horse Comics, who has been printing Star Wars comics for over two decades, has just sold out of Star Wars #1. Dark Horse had this to say about their new smash hit:
“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!”
REPRINT WILL ARRIVE FEBRUARY 6.
I personally picked up the issue but in an era when comics are now digital, the first issue is just a key stoke away (check it out here). Sure collectors won’t have that first issue in hand but for those of us that love to read a good book, there are always options
