Dark Horse Comics unveiled their new series Tuesday, and we had a first look at the cover. Comic Book Resources chatted with writer Brian Wood getting some details on what readers can expect in Star Wars #1.
“[the] series picks up in the aftermath of A New Hope. The Rebel Alliance has destroyed the Death Star, crippling the war machine that is the Empire, and is now trying to recover from its own losses and formulate the next phase. In many ways the key players are all suffering.
Luke is hurting from the death of his family and Ben, Leia is in mourning for her family and her entire planet, while trying to shoulder the burden of managing the Rebellion alongside Mon Mothma. Han is still kind of a jerk. Luke only has the barest sense of what the Force is, and will attempt to learn what he can on his own.
Leia is not going to be sitting around in a gown attending a lot of meetings — she has her blaster and an X-wing and is out there with Luke and Wedge working on building the Alliance back up after losing so much. I really wanted to put Leia into the mix, holding her own in battle. And then there’s Vader who is taken to task by the Emperor for not stopping that one X-wing that took out the Death Star.”
