[Marvel] Marvel: 2nd printing for Star Wars 001, 200,000 copies of Darth Vader #1 ordered
Following its record-breaking 1 million ordered copies and plethora of variants for the first issue of their new Star Wars comic series, Marvel have announced that a 2nd printing of that issue will be released on 4th February. It will feature a similar cover to the regular 001 cover except that the background will be black rather than white (see below).

Meanwhile, in an interview with ComicBook.com[External site - opens in a new window/tab] David Gabriel, Marvel's Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing, revealed that they have 200,000 confirmed retail orders for Darth Vader #1 - due for release 11th February. Gabriel also teased fans that they should "Look for some BIG Star Wars comics announcements in March and April!" and that Marvel have "got a packed slate of comics on the way". When drawn on if Marvel would be involved in publishing stories set between the movies, in particular between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, Gabriel replied "Uhm…these are not the droids you’re looking for."

[Star Wars Rebels] Egmont to publish English-language Star Wars Rebels kids magazine in UK
For several months it has been known that Panini Comics were planning a German language Star Wars Rebels kids comic/magazine with its first issue planned for release next week. However, it was uncertain whether an English language version would be produced. Then last month, after 15 years of publishing a Star Wars kids comic in the UK, Titan Magazines (who also publish Star Wars Insider magazine) announced that their UK published Star Wars Comic title was to cease publication with no replacement. This lead to some speculation as to whom may (or may not) publish an English language version of Panini's comic book with the front runner being Egmont Books (who also have the license to publish Star Wars Rebels books in the UK). Today, in a tweet[External site - opens in a new window/tab], Egmont confirmed that they will indeed be publishing an English language edition.
Star Wars Rebels Magazine #1 from Egmont will feature the 12-page short comic story Ring Race by Martin Fisher and art by Bob Molesworth as well as puzzles, games and other features and is planned for release on 28th January (one week after Panini's edition is released).

[Marvel] Marvel publish Dark Horse digital comics on ComiXology
Marvel have added to ComiXology's library around 60 Star Wars comic titles first published by Dark Horse Comics in ComiXology's aptly titled "Star Wars Debut". The debut titles are collected digital volumes such as graphic novel or Omnibus collections rather than individual comic book issues and include both recent titles such as The Star Wars as well as classic titles like Dark Empire and Marvel's original Star Wars series from 1977 thru 1986 (as released as five Omnibus editions by Dark Horse Comics).
Marvel's "debut" of Star Wars comics on ComiXology coincides with Marvel's re-issue of original Dark Horse Comics material on other digital platforms: for example a similar number of titles are now available on Amazon's Kindle and Barnes & Noble's Nook platforms.
