Preview: The Force is Strong With a New Look at Star Wars #1
Lucasfilm Ltd. and Marvel have released a new look at the highly anticipated Star Wars #1 – the blockbuster new ongoing series welcoming Star Wars back home to the House of Ideas! The all-star creative team of Jason Aaron, artist John Cassaday and colorist Laura Martin bring a galaxy far, far away to life like never before as the adventures of the Rebel Alliance continue following the events of Star Wars: A New Hope!
In an interview with Marvel.com, Aaron said:
Every story is about the characters, and we’ll focus on all the old favorites. There will be big moments for everyone, from Han to R2-D2. But a major part of the narrative will be driven by Luke Skywalker and his journey of discovery, a journey that will decide the fate of the entire galaxy.
Taking place immediately after the destruction of the first Death Star, join Luke, Leia, Han, Chewie, R2-D2 and C-3PO as the Rebel Alliance attempts to liberate the galaxy from Darth Vader and the tyranny of the Empire! Created in close partnership with Lucasfilm, this new ongoing comic series will exist as part of the canon for the Star Wars Universe!
The world of Star Wars is set to make it’s triumphant return to Marvel beginning in January 2015, and now is your chance to jump on board the brand new series for one of the biggest launches of the year! Take your first step into a larger world when Star Wars #1 comes to comic shops and digital devices this January!
