If you were hoping that the return of the Star Wars comics license to Marvel meant the return of Jaxxon the giant green rabbit then you're in luck! Sort of. StarWars.com has revealed the launch party variant (available at Star Wars #1 launch parties) cover for 'Star Wars #1', which features Jaxxon trying to open a door, only to have Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca, R2-D2, and Darth Vader keeping him out by holding the door shut! Check it out below,
Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel told StarWars.com,
"We couldn’t be happier to have Star Wars comics back at Marvel. 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."
The art on the cover is by John Tyler Christopher. 'Star Wars #1' hits shelves in January of 2015 and features the behind the scenes team of writer Jason Aaron, artist John Cassaday, and colorist Laura Martin. The ongoing series is set right after Episode IV and features the main cast of the original trilogy.
