Star Wars
Ongoing series
Writer: Jason Aaron
Artist: John Cassaday
Starting January 2015

Jason Aaron: ďItís very much a team book and weíve got all the main players here. Luke, Han, Leia, Chewie, the droids, and Darth Vader all get big moments in this first arc, and thatís our core cast going forward. I do want to be able to use Obi-Wan Kenobi. Iíve always liked the old Ben Kenobi version of Obi-Wan, so we will see him in some capacity.

Story wise, I think our book is driven in some big way by Luke and by the pretty interesting spot we find him in at this period in the timeline. You look at the gap between Episodes IV and V and thereís quite a bit that happens off screen that we get to explore.Ē

These announcements (including the other two Marvel Star Wars comics) sound great!

I love Jason Aaron, Mark Waid, and Kieron Gillen. Aaron did Thor: God of Thunder and is bringing the new female Thor to life. Waid is famous for his work on Daredevil, but also recently did a great run on Indestructible Hulk. Gillen's run on Journey into Mystery was epic, and I'm about to read some of his Iron Man.

I feel like the 3 announcements that were made, go all in the same direction...classic Star Wars. I know they are starting, but still, I find it sad that the past does not count a lot.
They could indeed have one series of classic SW but then also something on EU, create something new, or explore something as a continuation from some novels.

Of course knowing Marvel they will do it as well, on top of the rest. Meaning releasing 4 or 5 different series a month.

Of all the new announcements this intereasts me in the least.

I agree with mephizt on this one. It looks too much like classic Star Wars.

The setting between Ep. IV and V killed this for me. If it's going to be about Luke and friends trying to find a new rebel base, I'm definitely not going to buy this.

I admit, I don't know much about Marvel comics and how their authors hanndle things (the old SW comics being an exception), but for now I remain a sceptic.
