Marvel to Launch New Star Wars Comic Book Series

The first issue will be out by January 14!


( As if new Star Wars and Marvel movies this year weren’t enough, the universe has decided to bestow upon us a comic book series that marries the two. Marvel’s Star Wars #1 will be the first issue of the first Marvel-published Star Wars in over 20 years.


The book is set between the events of Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back , revolving around the adventures of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia after the destruction of the Death Star. There’s so much hype around the comic that some say the debut issue is set to sell over a million copies.


Written by Jason Aaron with eye-popping artwork by John Cassaday, Star Wars #1 will drop in stores and online on January 14. Mark your calendars!
