Three new Star Wars comics announced


Marvel has announced three new Star Wars comic series at San Diego Comic Con 2014.

It was only a matter of time before Marvel jumped back into Star Wars after the deal with Dark Horse Comics ended last year, and at Comic Con we have seen the reveal of not one but three new series, which will be the first contributions to Star Wars from Marvel since the 1980s.

The first, simply titled Star Wars, seems to follow the heroes of the Rebel Alliance shortly after the events of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. It will hit shelves in January 2015, written by Jason Aaron, and illustrated by John Cassaday.

Star Wars: Darth Vader will also follow the story past A New Hope, but this time focusing on the Dark Lord and his recovery from defeat after the destruction of the first Death Star. It is due out in February 2015, written by Kieron Gillen and drawn by Salvador Larroca.

Star Wars: Princess Leia is a miniseries following everybody's favourite princess as she laments the destruction of Alderaan and grows as a leader of the Rebellion. Due in March 2015, it will be written by Mark Waid with art by Terry Dodson.
