Amazon UK has released information on a new Star Wars Adventures comics digest. The new volume is entitled Chewbacca And The Slavers Of The Shadowlands. Amazon UK has it slated for a September 23, 2011 release date and it is available for pre-order. Here is the product description:

Journey back nearly two hundred years before the events in A New Hope as Chewbacca relates a story from his youth on Kashyyyk. Determined to prove themselves eligible for the rites of adulthood, Chewie and his young friends venture into the perilous Shadowlands in search of adventure. But they find far more than they bargained for when they stumble upon slavers plotting a raid on the Wookiee village.

It’s worth noting that this one is being published by Titan Books whereas the previous Star Wars Adventures volumes were published by Dark Horse Comics. Chewbacca And The Slavers Of The Shadowlands would be the sixth volume in the series. You can check out the Amazon UK details here. As of yet, there are not details on a US release.
