When Princess Leia Organa was captured by the Empire as a Rebel spy, she never betrayed her convictions, even in the face of the complete destruction of her home world, Alderaan. When her rescue came, she grabbed a blaster and joined the fight, escaping back to the Rebel Alliance and helping strike the biggest blow against the Empire-the destruction of the Death Star. But in the aftermath of that victory, the question remains...what is a princess without a world?
Writer Mark Waid (Daredevil, S.H.I.E.L.D.) and artist Terry Dodson (Avengers & X-Men: Axis, Uncanny X-Men) bring us a story of Leia's quest to help her people and find her place in the galaxy.

Dreaded Deadline Doom...
COMICBOOKMAN SEZ:   

 

At Alternate Reality, we order 99.9% of the comics PREVIEWS solicits. Keep that in mind as you read the numbers below; they not only break down our week, but they're also a good representation of the week in comics nationwide.

If the February shipping rollercoaster ended on a high note, the first week of March has continued that trend. Six more titles arrive this week over last week pushing the first week of Marches New Comic total to 177. Once again the TOP 5 starts off with DC taking 1st Place with twenty eight titles. 2nd Place finds a tie between two unlikely indies: IDW and Avatar. Each is shipping out twenty three books, but IDW takes the #2 position with a slightly higher price point (two bucks higher) making Avatar our 3rd Place shipper. 4th & 5th Place are also tied this week by the two publishing powerhouses Marvel and Image. Here, however, there is a thirteen dollar plus gap separating the two - placing Marvel in 4th Place and Image in 5th Place. Indy Comics are also up compared to last week with sixty five titles to last weeks fifty four titles. Digging deeper into those numbers Dynamite takes 6th Place with sixteen titles and BOOM! takes 7th Place with twelve. All together there are sixteen different publishers who are responsible for this weeks 177 titles.

THIS WEEK'S HIGHLIGHTS: Another Star Wars first at Marvel, DC variants go Hollywood, Science Fiction comes on strong and Dynamite brings back some favorites for the first shipping week of March 2015. Hot on the heels of their success with Star Wars Ongoing and Darth Vader Ongoing Marvel is giving the Rebel Alliances premiere princess her own solo series (a first!) with the release of the new mini series PRINCESS LEIA #1 (OF 5). In the aftermath of the Rebellion's victory after Return of the Jedi, Leia finds herself asking the question: what is a princess without a world? Find out this Wednesday and save a bunch because it's our 40% Off all week long Book of the Week. It brought to us by the team of writer Mark Waid (Daredevil, S.H.I.E.L.D.) and artist Terry Dodson (Avengers & X-Men: Axis, Uncanny X-Men). Also from Marvel and also 40% Off this Wednesday is GUARDIANS TEAM-UP #1 from writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Arthur Adams. Launching directly out of Guardians of the Galaxy, this issue team up Marvel's cosmic heroes for the first time with the Avengers. Meanwhile, Dynamite is bringing back two favorites starting this week. First up is BLOOD QUEEN VS DRACULA #1 (OF 4) which continues the Elizabeth Bathory story with Dracula returning from war to face a potential threat in the form of the Blood Queen herself. Blood Queen first debuted last summer (it was our featured Book of the Week on our first newsletter), but Project Superpowers is a book that has been off the racks for a while. PROJECT SUPERPOWERS BLACKCROSS #1 (OF 6) marks the return of the public domain universe of super-heroes. Blackcross is a supernatural extension of the PROJECT SUPERPOWERS mythos; a ghost story about something reaching out from the other side of the night for you! Both books are 40% Off this Wednesday. You can also save this week on the sci-fi series HALOGEN #1 (OF 4) from BOOM!
The gigantic body of a dead god was found floating in space and the HaloGen organization has acquired the recovery contract. More sci-fi adventure form writer Jeff Lemire and artist Dustin Nguyen in Image's DESCENDER #1. One young robot's struggle to stay alive in a universe where all androids have been outlawed and bounty hunters lurk on every planet is the story behind this book. Both Decender and Halogen are 40% Off this Wednesday. The last of our Magnificent 7 books that are books are 40% Off this Wednesday is MONSTER MOTORS CURSE OF MINIVAN HELSING #1 (OF 2). This book falls under the heading of "something completely different" among the 7 as Transylvania, Kentucky is being overrun by Monster Motors. Finally, a new month means a new parallel variant cover theme at DC and all March long you'll be seeing the DCU paying homage to Hollywood movie posters, "Open the pod-bay doors Hal!".
