With Star Wars fans’ attention being focused on the new movie set for release in December, the recently debut Star Wars #1 comic book only helped in creating further buzz. We think Jason Aaron, John Cassaday, Laura Martin did a great job bringing the galaxy far far away to life on paper, and recently some South African comic book artists had the opportunity to draw their own variant cover for the issue.

Readers Den comic store played host to one of the launch parties for #1 and was provided with a number of blank covers on which artists could let their Force run wild. The finished products are now available on BidorBuy to purchase, so if you are looking for some awesome artwork for an absolute steal (they start at R300), take a look here.

Some of the local talent that contributed included Alastair Brauns, Andre Human, Andrew Cramer, Ben Geldenhuys, Ben Winfield, Chip Snaddon, Chris Beukes, Danielle Albertyn, Daniël Hugo (interview), Gina Viglietti, Jarred Cramer, Karl Mostert, Kay Carmichael, kEda Gomes, Moray Rhoda (our one and only), Nicolas Rix, Rayaan Cassiem, Ryan Carolisen and Vincent Sammy.

Snap these up quickly before the auctions end. Below are a few of our favourites.
