Marvel has announced three new Star Wars comics, their first since recently regaining the license.
Marvel dropped a thermal detonator of an announcement at Saturday’s Cup o’ Joe panel, revealing three new Star Wars comics helmed by all-star creative teams: Star Wars, an ongoing series by Jason Aaron and John Cassaday (coming January 2015); Star Wars: Darth Vader, an ongoing series by Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca (coming February 2015); and Star Wars: Princess Leia, a five-issue miniseries by Mark Waid and Terry Dodson (coming March 2015). All canonical within the Star Wars universe, each book will pick up where Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope left off, filling in important, previously unexplored gaps for some of the saga’s most iconic characters. To put it simply, this is very big news.
StarWars.com spoke with Aaron, Gillen, and Waid — the writers of each title — to find out what readers can expect from these historic comics.
