The team over at Comic Book Exclusives have dropped the cover for their latest Star Wars High Republic variant, this time for issue four – and it plays homage to an iconic Clone Wars comic from the Dark Horse era.

The 2008 Dark Horse Comics The Clone Wars #1 “Dark Horse 100 Special Edition” comic told the “Slaves of the Republic – The Mystery of Kiros” tale, and originally had a cover by creator Dave Filoni.

Now ComicBookExclusives have made their own High Republic homage with artist Paolo Villanelli, in both raw and virgin editions – each with its own colorings.

This is the third in a trilogy of homages with previous homages to Clone Wars and Heir To The Empire created for The High Republic #1 and #3 variants they released.

The #4 variant will be sold for $80, and be limited to 2 per household.  Their #3 variant sold out in under three minutes!!!

The news of the new cover was broken on the 3 C M Comic Talk YouTube channel which you view below.

ComicBookExclusives specialize in ultra rare variant covers, and so there will only be 800 copies of each of the raw and virgin editions of this cover – so you will have to work fast to secure your copy.
