I’ve never really been big into comics… this is Star Wars though and, with new films on the way who knew I would get so excited about these.
Luke Skywalker and the ragtag band of rebels fighting against the Galactic Empire are fresh off their biggest victory yet-the destruction of the massive battle station known as the Death Star. But the Empire’s not toppled yet! Join Luke along with Princess Leia, smugglers Han Solo and Chewbacca, droids C-3PO and R2-D2 and the rest of the Rebel Alliance as they strike out for freedom against the evil forces of Darth Vader and his master, the Emperor.
Written by Jason Aaron (Original Sin, Thor: God of Thunder) and with art by John Cassaday (Astonishing X-Men, Uncanny Avengers), this is the Star Wars saga as only Marvel Comics could make it!
If you love the Star Wars movies and grew up with the franchise like so many folks my age then you will love these.
Over 1 Million copies of this comic were pre-ordered – see The Guardian story here – so. it’s safe to say these are going to cause a stir in 2015.
This might be my guilty pleasure for this year.
