Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond.

Book News

  • Apollo’s Daughters update – for those who backed the anthology, they’ve found a near complete draft of Aaron Allston’s story, and if all goes well, a finished version will wind up in the final version of the anthology.

Comic News

  • Dark Times: The Gallery Edition came out this week (though if you bought it off Amazon, it looks like we won’t get it until the 18th).

The Return of Jaxxon

November 5, 2014 at 5:20 pm | Posted in Art, Comic Books, Marvel, Star Wars | 1 Comment

With so many covers to choose from for Marvel’s Star Wars #1, I have finally found the one I want: the Star Wars #1 Party Variant.

star-wars-1-marvel-jaxxon-cover

Done by  John Tyler Christopher, the Star Wars #1 Party Variant cover will only be available at launch parties. But don’t get your hopes up for a full return of the giant green space bunny.

“Star Wars has always been an important part of Marvel’s history and we knew we wanted to honor that legacy with a callback to the original Marvel Comics Star Wars series. We think old and new fans alike will be just as excited as we are to see Jaxxon, even if it’s only for this fun variant cover.” -David Gabriel, Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing

Still pretty cool, though.

Just a heads up everyone; the publishing dates for our next two STAR WARS novels have moved a few weeks due to scheduling decisions.
