Marvel has two new Star Wars releases today.

Star Wars: Age of Republic – Obi-Wan Kenobi #1

Writer: Jody Houser
Artist: Cory Smith
Cover Artists: Paolo Rivera, Rahzzah (variant cover), Iain McCaig (concept design variant), Leinil Francis Yu (heroes variant), Mike McKone (puzzle piece variant)

THE EARLY DAYS OF OBI-WAN KENOBI, JEDI KNIGHT! Following the wishes of his master, OBI-WAN has taken on ANAKIN SKYWALKER as an apprentice. Will his mission alongside his young Padawan bring them closer together, or sow the seeds that will drive them apart? And who else is after the ancient holocron that they seek?

Details: 32 Pages, One Shot, Rated T, $3.99

Han Solo – Imperial Cadet #3 (of 5)

Writer: Robbie Thompson
Artist: Leonard Kirk
Cover Artist: David Nakayama, Todd Nauck (variant cover)

CASINO ROYALE! HAN SOLO gets demoted for insubordination – dragging his fellow cadets down with him. They go from flying TIE fighters to flying a giant cargo ship. Han’s expert flying cuts their cargo ship’s flight time in half, allowing them to stop at a casino for some hard-earned R&R. But Han’s fellow cadets quickly learn this little “vacation” was NOT authorized by the Empire and, thanks to Han, they’re all considered AWOL!

Details: 32 Pages, Rated T, $3.99
