Color Variant_StarWars-333.jpgEL SEGUNDO, Calif., November 2, 2015 — Wizard World, Inc. (OTCBB: WIZD) and Marvel today announced that the Star Wars: Darth Vader Down #1 Mike Mayhew ComicConBox™ Variant Covers will pay tribute to the iconic original Star Wars Episode VI: Revenge Of The Jedi Movie Poster (the name of the film was later changed to Return of the Jedi).

There are actually three versions of the cover; the first is a regular edition, the second version is a Black & White Sketch cover version, and a third – Subscription Only Variant, is a Virgin cover, so the original art can be seen in its entirety.

“Mike Mayhew was the first and only choice to pay homage to this classic Movie poster,” says John Macaluso , Wizard World CEO. “Mike captured the essence and power of Darth Vader, and we were super-excited when he accepted the job! We were so taken aback by the original art that we saw from Mike, that we decided to bonus every single ComicConBox for December. Every subscriber will receive both the original and Sketch Black & White version. Consider this an early holiday gift from Wizard World and Comic Con Box!”

“Vader Down is going to be nothing short of epic and we’re thrilled that Mike Mayhew could bring his classic style to this exciting variant cover,” says Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel . “We can’t wait for fans to get their hands on this twist on the iconic poster.”

The extremely limited Virgin Variant Cover will be available to 3-month subscribers only.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
