CHLOE BENNET SHOWS OFF DAISY JOHNSON HAIRCUT FOR AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.07/27/15 @ 5:57 pm EST
The first collected edition of Marvel Comics' Star Wars
series will sell between 225,000 and 250,000 copies in its first printing, ComicBook.com has learned exclusively.
That's about five times the average first volume trade collection of Marvel series, which average between 30,000 and 50,000 sales. That also means that Star Wars
is retaining roughly the same number of readers from peridocals to trades, with sales of the first trade translating to roughly 20-25% of the sales of the series' first issue.
When the series launched, Star Wars
#1 sold over a million copies, becoming the top-selling single-issue comic book of the last twenty years. Star Wars
also became the first-ever million-selling periodical comic book sold exclusively through direct market channels without the aid of newsstands.
Since January, Marvel Comics has confirmed for us that Star Wars
comics have moved more than 5 million units in the direct market.
Of course, the trade paperback will be available outside of the direct market, opening up the best-selling series to the bookstore market for the first time.
“When Star Wars #1 was released at the beginning of the year we were thrilled at the reception and the record-setting sales numbers. Once again, Star Wars continues to skyrocket the Marvel name even higher with the anticipated pre-order print-run between 200K and 250K units for Star Wars Vol 1 TPB," said David Gabriel, SVP Print, Sales and Marketing. "This is an unheard of number, but given the success that we’ve had with Star Wars since January, including the insurmountable 5MM units across all the Star Wars’ series, second prints and overprints, we don’t see any issue in reaching such a number of printed copies of this highly anticipated collected edition.”
The series, which takes place between the events of Star Wars
and The Empire Strikes Back
and features all of the major characters from the film, launched in January. It is written by Jason Aaron, with artwork by John Cassaday. While Marvel handled the official adaptations of the original Star Wars
trilogy and had a successful Star Wars
series around the time of their theatrical release, 2015 will be the first time in decades that the publisher has handled the Star Wars

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.STAN LEE WEIGHS IN ON MICHAEL B. JORDAN AS THE HUMAN TORCH IN FANTASTIC FOUR07/27/15 @ 5:27 pm EST
star Chloe Bennet has revealed her new Daisy Johnson haircut for Season 3 of the series.
Season 3 will draw inspiration and characters from the Secret Warriors
comic book series. Now that “Skye” has been revealed as the TV version of Quake, Bennet is being made to look a bit more like a TV version of the original character.'
While the cut is a significant shortening from Bennet’s previously long locks, it’s still quite a bit longer than Daisy’s closely cropped hair in the comics.

ANDREW HOWARD JOINS MARVEL’S ‘AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.’07/27/15 @ 5:15 pm EST
t’s no small understatement to say the Internet was agitated to learn Michael B. Jordan had been cast as the Human Torch in Josh Trank’s upcoming reboot of Fantastic Four
In May 2013, upon discovering the character — originally conceived in Marvel’s early ’60s comic series as a hot-headed, blonde-haired, blue-eyed teenager who can burst into flame at will — would be updated by an African-American actor, fan outcry blazed across social media with super-heated vitriol.
But in a personal essay for Entertainment Weekly, “Why I’m Torching the Color Line,” Jordan pointed out that if Stan Lee, the prolific writer and comic book kingpin who created the Fantastic Four (in addition to a host of other immortal characters including Spider-Man, the X-Men, and the Avengers), was okay with him portraying the character, the rest of Fanboy Nation should be too.
Contacted by EW, Lee — who shattered comic-dom’s unofficial color barrier during the Civil Rights era, penning such characters as the Black Panther and the Falcon — took pains to make ensure there is no uncertainty regarding his stance on Jordan’s casting in the new Fantastic Four
“It was more than okay,” says Lee. “I thought it was a great idea!”
As the indefatigable 92-year-old superhero conjurer and Marvel Comics chairman emeritus sees it, fan backlash up until this point hasn’t so much been spurred on by racism as much as unyielding fealty to the source material.
“They’re outraged not because of any personal prejudice,” Lee says. “They’re outraged because they hate to see any change made on a series and characters they had gotten familiar with. In Spider-Man
, when they got a new actor, that bothered them, even though it was a white actor. I don’t think it had to do with racial prejudice as much as they don’t like things changed.”
He adds: “But I think they’re gonna get to love this character. So I’m not the least bit worried about it. I always tried to pepper these groups with as much racial diversity as possible because that’s the way the world is.” Fantastic Four
opens Aug. 7.
