Marvel is raising the bar on cover variants with Star Wars #1. Below we’ve collected a gallery of the cover art. It is not a complete gallery, and not all of the artwork below is official covers as we have included some preliminary art as well as images of just the art, and some of the actual covers (complete with logos). Regardless, with so many variants and artists involved, it’s quite the gallery. Enjoy!

For what it’s worth, here’s our review of Alien vs. Predator: Fire and Stone #4.
