Head on over to StarWars.com for a look at several preview pages from Marvel’s Star Wars #75 which is slated bring an end to Marvel’s flagship Star Wars series later this month. But as the sun sets on one series, a new one rises as Marvel will be partnering up with writer Charles Soule to continue their line of Star Wars comics with a brand new series set in the time frame between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.
The first issue in this new series is scheduled to arrive on January 1, 2020.
“The Force is with you, young Skywalker. But you are not a Jedi yet.”
So said Darth Vader to Luke in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, and Star Wars #75 reveals an earlier encounter between the two that adds new dimension to the Sith Lord’s assessment. Coming November 20 and written by Greg Pak with art by Phil Noto, the issue closes out this run of Marvel’s flagship Star Wars series in epic fashion — before the title relaunches with Star Wars #1, set during the era of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, on January 1, 2020.
