Marvel has confirmed that the issue has more than one million sold to direct market.
That news doesn't surprise me. What with the new movie coming out and simply the fact that it's Star Wars.
The series will take place between the events of Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back and feature all of the major characters from the films.
"I’m super thrilled, of course. I’ve been saying for a while that 2015 is gonna be a very good year to be writing Star Wars. This only proves it. Excitement is already building for the new film coming next December, and we’re just lucky we get to be the first big new Star Wars story coming right out of the gate. So yeah, I can’t wait for people to see what we’ve put together." - writer Jason Aaron
