Marvel Announces New Star Wars Comics

Shockingly, there’s actually some comic news coming out of the San Diego Comic-Con. Marvel has announced the first slate of new Star Wars comics that they’ll be publishing since Disney acquired the franchise back in 2012. They are:

-An ongoing series simply titled Star Wars, which is coming in January 2015 from Jason Aaron and John Cassaday

-Star Wars: Darth Vader, an ongoing series by Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca coming in February 2015

-Star Wars: Princess Leia, a five-issue miniseries by Mark Waid and Terry Dodson that will land in March 2015

All three of them will be part of the official Star Wars canon, just like the movies, as part of Disney’s efforts to consolidate all the expanded universe material under one consistent roof. Here’s a look at artwork for all three:
