The original comics adaptation of the greatest space-fantasy film of all is remastered for the modern age with all-new coloring by Chris Sotomayor! Weeks before George Lucas’ first Star Wars film hit theaters, Marvel gave fans their first look at Luke Skywalker, boldly asking: “Will he save the galaxy, or destroy it?” You may know the answer, but that doesn’t spoil the fun of seeing Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope like never before — including scenes that never made the silver screen! When Princess Leia is taken prisoner, Luke, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO and R2-D2 ride to the rescue and take on Darth Vader in his awesome Death Star. It’s six against a galaxy — one that’s far, far away and a long time ago! May the Force be with you, in the mighty Marvel manner! Collecting STAR WARS (1977) #1-6.

Details: 128 pages, Rated T, $19.99

Cover Artist: Mark Brooks

Discover how Jedi Padawan Caleb Dune became Kanan Jarrus, the cocky, sarcastic renegade hero of Star Wars: Rebels! As Caleb trained under Master Depa Billaba, neither one of them ever suspected that their “loyal” Clone Troopers would turn on them upon the issuing of Order 66 — the Emperor’s directive to execute all Jedi. How did Caleb Dune escape the Jedi purge? Then, journey even further back and experience Caleb’s very first adventure as a Padawan, protecting the Jedi Temple alongside his new master. As they head toward the furious Battle of Mygeeto, they’ll face one of the deadliest threats in the entire galaxy: General Grievous! Bridge the gap between the Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels! Collecting KANAN — THE LAST PADAWAN #1-5 and KANAN #6-12.

Details: 272 pages, Rated T, $34.99, oversized

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Adaptation HC

Writer: Chuck Wendig
Penciller: Luke Ross
Cover Artist: Phil Noto

It’s true — all of it! The blockbuster movie jumps from the big screen to the comic-book page! It’s been three decades since the Rebel Alliance destroyed the Death Star and toppled the Galactic Empire — but now, on the remote planet Jakku, there is a stirring in the Force. A young scavenger named Rey…a deserting Stormtrooper named Finn…an ace pilot named Poe…and a dark apprentice named Kylo Ren… Their lives are about to collide as the awakening begins. Writer Chuck Wendig (Star Wars: The Aftermath Trilogy) and artist Luke Ross (HERCULES) take us back into the saga of a lifetime! Collecting STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS ADAPTATION #1-6.

USA Today has revealed that Marvel will be doing a Darth Maul mini-series next year and it will kick off in February. The five issue mini-series will be written by Cullen Bunn and drawn by Luke Ross who illustrated The Force Awakens comic adaptation. The story will be set prior to The Phantom Menace.

The comic finds Maul an untested warrior under the training of Darth Sidious, who would later become the Galactic Emperor. Told to stand down from engaging with Jedi yet, Maul hunts down the worst of the worst in the cosmic underworld to vent his frustration.

After learning a young Jedi Padawan named Eldra Kaitis has fallen into the hands of a crime lord, Maul seizes an opportunity to test his skills against a real Jedi but also maybe turn someone else to the dark side.
