Star Wars #1 (2nd Printing)
By: Brian Wood, Carlos D’Anda, Gabe Eltaeb, Alex Ross
This is Star Wars as you remember it . . . and as you have never seen it before! We’re 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!
* After launching to rave reviews Star Wars #1 sells out the day of release!
* Dark Horse goes back to press for a 2nd printing, this time with a completely stripped down Alex Ross cover.
“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
“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
