Marvel regaining the Star Wars license through their parent company Disney buying Lucasfilm is being taken as kind of a big deal by the comic publisher. After all, they published the very first Star Wars comics prior to the license moving to Dark Horse.
To celebrate the return of Star Wars to Marvel, Joe Quesada has done a variant cover for the first issue of “Star Wars”, which is due in January. Right now it’s not known how limited his variant will be. That information will be coming soon when solicitations for the January books come out.
