Marvel Comics Celebrate STAR WARS' 40th Anniversary
With a Line of Beutiful Variant Covers!
2017 marks the 40th anniversary of STAR WARS!
In 1977, George Lucas struck luck when 20th Century Fox finally gave him the chance he needed to present audiences with one of the most influential and long-lasting science fiction film sagas known to man. Set "A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...", Star Wars focused on a young Tattooine farmboy named Luke Skywalker as he's thrust into a much larger life of Rebellion and war after intercepting a message from a princess named Leia, who was captured by the Galactic Empire. With the help of his new friends Han and Chewy, his mentor Obi-Wan Kenobi, and his droid compatriots, C-3PO and R2-D2, Luke becomes the best star pilot, and hero of the Rebellion.
This timeless story spawned two sequels, a prequel trilogy, a slew of animated shows, and a sequel trilogy that fans are now currently anticipating, plus so much more, proving that 40 years later Star Wars is still a force to be reckoned with!
For the 40th anniversary, Marvel Comics plans to celebrate by giving die-hard Star Wars fans a line of variant covers dedicated to the saga's long legacy. All year long, every issue of all of the existing Star Wars comic book series' will have a anniversary cover. Each anniversary cover is numbered, and there will be a total of 48 covers (Four covers a month for twelve months...). A few have already come out, some we got, and some we didn't...
We'll be real: For a lot of these, there are some crazy qualifications we need to meet, in our ordering, to even get ONE copy of these covers. So, what we ask is that if anyone is interested in obtaining these covers, PLEASE let us know, so we know how to order them going forward. We want to make sure that if you need these for your collection, that we can get them for you...
And, if you're on the hunt for the ones that have already been released, we can try to help you hunt those down, as well. Just let us know!
So, to start, here are the ones that have already been released. Again, let us know if you're on the hunt for them! We'll help you track them down the best we can!
