If you picked up a copy of "Star Wars #1" last month, you certainly weren't alone! The first issue of the new ongoing comic book series, focused on Han, Luke & Leia following the Battle Of Yavin, marked the official return of Marvel to the the Galaxy far, far away. The book was in high demand, warranting several printings, and now it seems the premiere comic was an even bigger hit than we first thought.
Diamond Comics, which is by far the world's largest comic & graphic novel distributor, is now reporting that Star Wars #1 has topped the list of best selling comic books for January 2015! #1 blew past huge Marvel and DC titles such as Batman, Amazing Spider-man and Justice league, among others. You can check out the full top ten list below:
It's also worth mentioning that the Star Wars: Imperial Assault board game came in at #4 on the Top ten games list. The hunger for new Star Wars content seems to be only growing stronger as we approach the Saga's return to the big screen later this year.
So if you have yet to pick up #1, be sure to head to your local Comic Book shop to pick it up, along with Star Wars #2 which is out now as well!
