Star Wars #1 has been one of the biggest comic book releases in Star Wars history. Taking place directly after Episode IV, it has the continuing adventures of Luke, Han, Leia, Chewie, and the Droids; as they try to take down The Empire. You can read my review of the Jason Aaron comic HERE. At the same time, the ultimate evil presence is trying to track down these Rebels, in the upcoming Darth Vader comic.

The comic has already exceeded 300K in pre-order sales, and below we have our first look at some of the comic covers. The story is written by Kieron Gillen (Uncanny X-Men, Thor) and artwork is by Salvador Larocca (Ultimate X-Men, Fantastic Four). Check out the covers and make sure you pre-order yours NOW, before they sell out!
