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.
