Star Wars #1From Dark Horse:

STAR WARS #1 SELLS OUT IN 24 HOURS!

REPRINT WILL ARRIVE FEBRUARY 6!

January 11, MILWAUKIE, OR—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!

Praise for Star Wars #1:

“With the focus on our beloved characters rather than just space battles (although there will be some of those), not to mention art by Carlos D’Anda and a cover by Alex Ross, this is the most excited I’ve been for a new Star Wars title in any medium in years.”—Wired/Geek Mom

“Brian Wood and Carlos D’Anda truly have the making of a classic on their hands. If you ever wondered if Star Wars could ever recapture that childlike glee of those earliest of memories, wonder no more. Star Wars is back and it’s never been better.”—Newsarama

“As a progeny of the first trilogy and someone who still refers to Episode IV as Star Wars, this book is exactly what I didn’t realize I’ve been missing so very, very badly.”—Comic Book Resources

“It all just feels like Star Wars, and for a franchise that has been around for over 30 years, D’Anda somehow finds a way to inject new life into it.”—Complex

“If you’ve become jaded about the direction of Star Wars in the last couple of decades, this book might be just the thing you need to remember what appealed to you in the first place.”—IGN
