Star Wars #68
(Marvel Comics)
REBELS AND ROGUES! “The evil lord Darth Vader, obsessed with finding young Skywalker, has dispatched thousands of remote probes into the far reaches of space…” That’s right — you remember the opening titles of The Empire Strikes Back. Now find out what happened just before, as Luke and his friends launch a desperate, three-pronged mission of deception to keep the Empire from finding their new rebel base in a brand-new epic from the new ongoing team of Greg “PLANET HULK” Pak and Phil “POE DAMERON” Noto! Featuring Han and Leia undercover in a noir world of romance and danger! Luke and R2 facing off against the Executor in a single X-Wing! And Chewie and Threepio, the greatest team-up you never knew you always needed!
Cover variants; A – Noto, B – Andrews (Galactic Moments 19/36), C – JTC (Action Figure: AT-ST Driver), SDCC Exclusive – Noto

Age of Resistance: Captain Phasma #1
(Marvel Comics)
ANOTHER GUN! STORMTROOPERS don’t get a name. They are simply a tool of the EMPIRE. But PHASMA has a name, and one young soldier wants what she has. One stormtrooper has ambition. And this ambition is on a collision course with CAPTAIN PHASMA.
Cover variants; A – Noto, B – LFL (Movie); C – McKone (Puzzle Piece); D – Zonjic (Concept)
