Star Wars comic book collectors, break out your wallets! With the 40th anniversary of Star Wars coming next year, Marvel is set to separate you from the money in your hand. The Marvel Star Wars 40th Anniversary Variant Covers will be many, and most likely expensive (in some cases).
Marvel debuted eight of the upcoming 48 different variants today.
Star Wars turns 40 in 2017, and the House of Ideas is celebrating all year long.
Throughout the coming year, Marvel will be releasing special variant covers depicting various scenes from Star Wars: A New Hope — the film that started it all in 1977 — in honor of its milestone anniversary. The covers, 48 in total, will be illustrated by some of the industry’s most gifted artists, and come complete with a new logo and border treatment.
It’s time to demonstrate the full power of these covers: StarWars.com and Marvel are excited to reveal the first batch below!
