Star was first introduced in the Marvel universe in Captain Marvel #8 from 2019. There are three covers for this book; a regular cover, a “secret” blood splatter variant and a Venom-ized variant with artwork by Inhyuk Lee.  We did speak about this title when the books were released in July.

This title has a second print and third print variant cover as well as several second print “virgin art” store variant covers.



It was later revealed in the pages of Captain Marvel #10 that Star’s real name is Ripley Ryan. Ripley Ryan does have a brief appearance in Captain Marvel #1 from 2018. This book had few high end ratio variants as well as an Artgerm chase variant.

Depending on how this character is used and how this series is received it’s probably a great time to be picking up the key Star books. This new news is great if you currently have these books as they’re going to see a momentary period of gain.
