Marvel Comics to Launch STAR WARS Comic
Marvel Comics will soon be kicking off its line of comics based on the (hugely popular) sci-fi franchise with the release of a new ‘Star Wars’ comic this January.
Usually Dark Horse Comics takes care of any Star Wars comics, but since Marvel bought the ‘Star Wars’ license from them, they will be releasing tie-in books to expand the universe. This includes the ongoing Star Wars: Darth Vader by writer Kieron Gillen and artist Salvador Larroca in February, and the five-issue miniseries Star Wars: Princess Leia by writer Mark Waid and artist Terry Dodson in March.
The first three new comics will take place after the first 1977 movie. The comic will allow the readers to catch up with Han Solo, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker and the rest of the gang after the destruction of the Death Star.
The three ‘Star Wars’ comics will be launching sometime in January 2015.
