Cantina Comlink is your weekly smuggler’s run to spotlight Star Wars comics as only Marvel can make ‘em!

Everything old’s new again! Today, a mighty modern Marvel mastermind joins up with a crew of amazing artists to return to the classic comics of yesteryear with STAR WARS #108!

Writer Matthew Rosenberg’s the lucky guy who drew the plum assignment, and…what’s that you say? The current STAR WARS series hasn’t gotten that far yet? Well, nerf herders, that’s because this ish picks up where the original Marvel series ended in 1986 to revisit that totally unique take on everyone’s favorite Galaxy Far, Far Away!

All your favorites from the past will be there, and we’ve got an exclusive Q&A with Rosenberg to tell you what to expect.

Matt, here’s the Most Important Question first: Favorite of the ten Star Wars feature films, and why?

Oh wow. You’re putting me on the spot right from go!

Is there any other way to do it?

Well, I love them all, but my heart will always be with Episode IV. It’s the first one I saw and it started it all. It’s where my love for Star Wars began.

Matthew’s continuation has been helped by the support of a plethora of talent from the art deaprtment and I am sure it will become a classic comic in time.
