Knight Errant Escape #1 gets San Diego exclusive variant

Every year, Diamond Comic Distributors works with publishers to create some special editions available to the retailers who’ll be setting up at Comic-Con International: San Diego — and this year, the Dark Horse variant will be none other than Star Wars: Knight Errant – Escape #1.

The preview is now online for the regular version of the issue, which ships next Wednesday and can be ordered here — but the black-and-white Diamond edition (drawn by Mike Hawthorne) only becomes available in San Diego. (Retailers obtaining them there may well make them available in their local areas, and copies not sold by Diamond there will likely be available for retailers to order.) The issue is limited to 2,000 copies, and I will be signing a few cases of them in advance for Diamond — and then, of course, I will be at the convention myself (airlines willing) to sign as well.

Another interview on Knight Errant coming up before the issue releases; I’ll post the link when I get it. Follow me on Twitter for regular updates.
