Marvel Comics to Issue Free Star Wars: Age of Republic Special #1 McKone Puzzle Piece Variant Cover to Fill The Gap

Mike McKone has been drawing 'Puzzle Pieces' variant covers for all of the Star Wars Age Of Rebellion and Age Of Resistance one-shots that have been running for the past year. Collectors are able to assemble them, if they so wish, to create one big picture, as seen below.

However it appears that Marvel Comics missed one for the Star Wars: Age of Republic Special #1 out next week. Oops. And now there is a gap. As a result, to placate fans and keep the collection going, Marvel will be sending complimentary copies of a newly issued Star Wars: Age of Republic Special #1 McKone Puzzle Piece Variant edition to match to orders placed on previous variants so that collectors and retailers can keep their collection gapless…


(W) Tom Taylor, G. Willow Wilson, Chris Eliopoulos (A) Elsa Charretier, Matteo Buffagni, Javier Pina (CA) Phil Noto
