Marvel have announced three new Star Wars comic books for next year. The first will launch in January and is simply titled Star Wars. It comes from the creative team of Jason Aaron (Thor: God of Thunder) and John Cassaday (Uncanny Avengers) and takes place after the destruction of the first Death Star as Luke, Han and Leia battle Darth Vader. In February, we'll get Star Wars: Darth Vader from Kieron Gillen (Iron Man) and Salvador Larroca (Cable and X-Force), with covers by Adi Granov. That takes place from the perspective of the iconic villain as he atempts to regain control over the Empire after their defeat at the hands of the Rebels in A New Hope. Finally, March will see the debut of Star Wars: Princess Leia from Mark Waid (Daredevil) and Terry Dodson (X-Men). Following the battle of Yavin, it picks up with the princess as she sets out on various missions following the destruction of her home planet Alderaan. Pretty exciting stuff, wouldn't you agree?

You had me at Kierron Gillen on Darth Vader.

The Darth Vader series is probably the only interesting one. Maybe Leia too but the main series sounds like it's just gonna be another story.

I'm kinda annoyed that Aaron's book is basically what Brian Wood was doing in the adjectiveless Star Wars book before Disney bought it but meh, its Aaron.

I love Terry Dodson, his work is always amazing.

I like dodson art but he has a habit of drawing all his women with the same face, wonder how star wars fans feel overall about these upcoming books

Wasn't that into Stars Wars but I will check these out when they're released next year. At least in TPB.

I'm honestly looking forward to the DelRay books more. But I'll give these comic books a chance.

So Cassaday will be on for what, three, four issues? Again he's a guy they need to put on an OGN not a monthly.

I haven't really read much of anything when it comes to Star Wars comic books, but I just might start with these. It might be dangerous to get me even more pumped up for the new movies though.

Star Lord...err Luke looks great, if only Chewie could say I am Groot.

Can't ever go wrong with Adi on cover art
BlindJustice - 7/26/2014, 5:41 PM
This was Disney's plan all along...

Sounds awesome

@Gado

Well considering the EU's cast of female characters has been pushed aside...the fact that the artist can on draw one female face really becomes a non-issue since there are only three women in all of Star Wars (IV,V,VI) that have even spoken (that's a quick mental runthrough of the three films)

lol
