Star Wars #1 is off to a good start. The first two printings sold out, and collectors have no shortage of variant covers to chose from. But with all the flurry of news, just how many covers are there? Well, the answer is six (so far). We decided to put together a gallery of the covers and cover art to give everyone a visual reference on what’s out there, and what’s to come.

CBR touched base with Dark Horse Comics Editor Randy Stradley on a variety of subjects you’ll definitely be interested in. Randy spoke a little about the better than expected sales of Star Wars #1, re-confirmed that the Star Wars comic license is still with Dark Horse (though the future is always in motion), the character driven aspects of Brian Wood’s Star Wars series…

“As far as teasing the future, I hesitate to say much for fear of spoiling the surprises. I’ll say Wedge plays a larger part in what’s going on than you might imagine; Leia displays both strategic brilliance and emotional vulnerability; Luke follows his heart; and Han, well, Han displays a knack for getting into trouble.” -Randy Stradley

Randy also went on to discuss the upcoming miniseries Darth Vader and the Ninth Assassin… Continue Reading CBR talks with Randy Stradley about all things Star Wars…

Eye on the Sky: Andromeda

This image of Andromeda is via the Herschel Space Observatory (similar to the Hubble Space Telescope). Andromeda is the nearest major galaxy to our own, though still 2.5 million light years away.

Sensitive to the far-infrared light from cool dust mixed in with the gas, Herschel seeks out clouds of gas where stars are born. The new image reveals some of the very coldest dust in the galaxy — only a few tens of degrees above absolute zero — colored red in this image.

By comparison, warmer regions such as the densely populated central bulge, home to older stars, take on a blue appearance.

Intricate structure is present throughout the 200,000-light-year-wide galaxy with star-formation zones organized in spiral arms and at least five concentric rings, interspersed with dark gaps where star formation is absent.

Andromeda is host to several hundred billion stars. This new image of it clearly shows that many more stars will soon to spark into existence.
