Fans are eagerly anticipating the release of Star Wars #1, the first comic book issued by Marvel in partnership with Lucasfilm and Disney in 2015.
Marvel brought to life all the movie adaptations and ongoing series during the time of the Star Wars original trilogy. This will mark a departure from what fans have come to know as the Expanded Universe.
In this realm, comic books focused on familiar side characters and older versions of the main, beloved main cast of characters, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia. However, all of that is in the past now and fans are ready to revisit what happened to our friends after Star Wars: A New Hope.
When Disney acquired Lucasfilm, they announced a canonical reset of sort, a fresh start, and new take to prepare fans for what is to come when Star Wars: The Force Awakens finally hits theaters on December 18 of this year and beyond. Star Wars #1 is penned by Thor scribe Jason Aaron, with the artistry of Astonishing X-Men’s John Cassaday, a collaboration of comics titans.
