Marvel’s Darth Maul #1 to Feature a Michael Turner Exclusive Variant
Independent comic book publisher Aspen Comics is pleased to announce another exclusive release from their hugely popular www.AspenStore.com Michael Turner and Peter Steigerwald variant cover series for Marvel Comics, this time for the release of their highly anticipated Star Wars comic book, Darth Maul #1.
As a fan of Michael Turner’s art, I always get just a little bit excited to hear another piece of his work is coming out on a cover. We lost not only a talented artists when he passed away, but an artist that also took time to make a fan happy with a quick sketch even though he was already being pulled away to another commitment by his handlers at SDCC years ago. He made my show that year and am happy that Aspen Comics is able to continue to share his work with the world so that others may enjoy it.
One of only a small handful of contemporary Star Wars images Michael Turner illustrated before his passing, this exclusive www.AspenStore.com cover featuring the fearsome Darth Maul is an absolute must for any comic book, Michael Turner or Star Wars fan. Colored for the first time by the incomparable Peter Steigerwald, the comic book galaxy just got a little bit deadlier with the release of this brand new Michael Turner Darth Maul exclusive cover!
Bred on hate, fear, and anger…steeped in the ways of darkness…and trained to kill. Darth Maul’s time as apprentice to Darth Sidious has long been cloaked in shadows, but at last we will reveal his tale of revenge. From writer Cullen Bunn and artist Luke Ross comes a tale of rage unleashed as Darth Maul prepares for his first encounter with the Jedi.
The Darth Maul #1 www.AspenStore.com Michael Turner & Peter Steigerwald exclusive cover will be available for pre-order starting on Saturday, January 14th at noon (PST)/3:00 PM (EST) and will feature a color variant (limited to 3,000 copies) in addition to a special black and white sketch variant (limited to 2,000 copies and available only in the Darth Maul #1 www.AspenStore.com set). Darth Maul #1 will be released February 1st.
