“Princess Leia” Comic Issue 001 (Variant Edition with Custom Cover by Alfredo Lopez Jr.)

July 22, 2015


Marvel has gone a little variant-crazy with its new series of Star Wars comics. Star Wars #1 apparently had 95 variant covers. I don’t know how many variants they did for Princess Leia #1, but this is the sketch cover variant, with artwork by artist Alredo “Freddy” Lopez Jr. It’s got a blank white card stock cover over the normal cover, which is intended for artists to create their own original artwork.


I really like what Freddy did with all of the characters here. Of course, Leia is very stylized and doesn’t bear much resemblance to Carrie Fisher, but she’s quite well done. Jabba in particular manages to look both cute and menacing at the same time. It appears to have been drawn with ink and markers.
