COLLECTOR DarthLego private msg quote post Address this user
Aspen sent out an email with this teaser image in it.




Can we expect something Star Wars related??? I'm excited!

Maybe a variant cover. Marvel/Disney owns Star Wars.

Possibly a Carrie Fisher tribute cover?

Damn you Aspen!!!! I'd made the conscious decision to stop buying variants this year after spending far too much on all their rebirth variants and as the majority of variants are a complete waste of time and money and then they go and tease something like this. May as well just send them one of my kids for future payments and store credit.

I just signed myself up for their newsletter after seeing this discussion thread. Just need to make sure I have a stable wifi connection for my phone on Saturday.

Good luck to Aspen and whatever they have planned. I love Star Wars if that's what it is. More for you guys though as I'm still a little B*** hurt on how the Harley thing was handled.

yeah i wasnt aware of the printing issues until someone mentioned it on another post but that was part of my decision to reign things in a little with all these variants but im guessing when/if a Star Wars cover is revealed ill be jumping at it anyway like the fool I am!

I heard it was their Harley pose dressed as different Star Wars characters.

genuinely gutted by that. looks a nice cover but with all the 40th anniversary issues coming up i think it would have been more fitting to have gone with one of those and a Prince Leia cover. Maybe Turner hadnt done one though

Maybe they'll bump the print run up if it's too successful

Aspen said Turner did a handful of Star Wars sketches. Hopefully we will get all of them released.

And hopefully Aspen learned it's lesson about print run sizes. There's nothing wrong with 3,000 . The problem they don't seem to grasp is limited the number you can order to combat those scalpers.

@DarthLego Yeah, they still have unsold Harleys available on their site. Only the hatless version (the one that wasn't bumped up) has sold out. And now they even have a second print Harley, which a lot of people think they should've done i stead of bumping up the print run

They bumped up the print run for this new book. Well, they bumped it up by 500 for the black and white

Yeah, I didn't even notice that, 2,000 instead of the usual 1,500.

Setting my wake up alarm now. I'm not going to miss this one like I did the Joker cover.

I'm A huge star wars fan and love the original marvel run and even some of the dark horse stuff was pretty good. Seems like Marvel is flooding the market with star wars this go around. It's a cool Darth Maul cover just seems like a Decade to late for this.

I picked up 3 sets, 1 for my personal collection and a couple for the store but don't think these will be as big/quick a seller as some of the previous variants (whether that's because of the character or the previous stock level issues im not sure though)

Just snagged my set. The colored version looks great, but that sketch looks extra gritty! Love it!

I didn't think the B&W would sell out in minutes, but I did think it would sell out.

Looks like its still available two days after the sale started. Not a good sign for this run.
