Marvel has one new release today.

Star Wars: Age of Republic Special #1

Writers: Ethan Sacks, Jody Houser, Marc Guggenheim, and Chip Zdarsky
Artists:
 Carlos Gomez, Paolo Villanelli, and Caspar Wijngaard
Cover Artists: Rod Reis, Khoi Pham (variant cover), Mike Deodato (greatest hits variant), Mike McKone (puzzle piece variant)

THE GREATEST HEROES OF THE REPUBLIC, THE DEADLIEST VILLAINS – AND EVERYONE IN BETWEEN! Four creative teams! Four stories featuring your favorite Star Wars characters! The baddest Jedi in the galaxy has a score to settle — MACE WINDU returns in an action-packed adventure from OLD MAN HAWKEYE’S Ethan Sacks! You can run, but can you hide from the twin lightsabers of Sith assassin ASAJJ VENTRESS? Feel her fury in a tale expertly woven by veteran STAR WARS comic scribe Jody Houser (THRAWN, THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN: RENEW YOUR VOWS). And is JAR JAR BINKS’ role in the Star Wars story over? NOT BY A LONG SHOT! Because Chip Zdarsky (PETER PARKER: THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN and MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE) has a rancor bone to pick with the galaxy’s most notorious Gungan. You can take the clone out of the war but you can never take the war out of the clone — CAPTAIN REX dusts off his blaster and enters the fray in a story by X-MEN: GOLD author Marc Guggenheim.

Details: 40 Pages, One Shot, Rated T, $4.99
