Marvel announces "Star Wars", "Darth Vader" ongoings, "Princess Leia" miniseries

Star Wars triumphantly returns to Marvel Comics in January of 2015, spearheaded with a new ongoing series by writer Jason Aaron and artist John Cassaday. STAR WARS kicks off a brand-new tale that follows the events of “Star Wars: A New Hope” and features the entire original cast of characters who inhabit that galaxy far, far away.

Aaron and Cassaday intend to bring their formidable storytelling abilities to bear on the saga, tapping into their own Star Wars fandom as well as their combined experience as consummate comic book professionals.

After the January 2015 launch of the first new Star Wars series at Marvel Comics in decades, writer Kieron Gillen and artist Salvador Larroca will delve into the Dark Side with STAR WARS: DARTH VADER, an ongoing series beginning in February.

Darth Vader’s known as one of the greatest villains of all time, but in this series Gillen and Larroca explore not only the Dark Lord of the Sith’s action following the destruction of the first Death Star, but also the toll on the man behind the mask.

Following the epic 2015 launch of Marvel’s first new Star Wars ongoing series in decades in January and STAR WARS: DARTH VADER in February, March comes in like a royal lion with the five-issue limited series STAR WARS: PRINCESS LEIA.

Written by writer Mark Waid and illustrated by artist Terry Dodson, the series promises a look at Leia like never before, focusing on the personal strength that saw her through her terrible trials after the destruction of her home planet Alderaan at the hands of the Galactic Empire.

Will wait and see. It is hard to get too excited about eras that have been overdone before...

Yeah. I mean, the main series looks to have the same exact premise as the one Dark Horse is running now.

Darth Vader is the one I'm looking forward to. Kieron Gillen excels at villain protagonists.

Gillen eh? I'm not a comic book reader (anymore), and I haven't read any of his works, but I still remember him fondly from his days at RockPaperShotgun. A proper video game journalist if I ever saw one.

Anyway, it's to be expected that this new age of Star Wars will initially focus on stories set in the era of the movies. I'm hoping they go back to exploring different times of the universe in the future. I'm much more interested in that.

Yeah, he's a become a really good comics writer. There's a good amount of diversity to his output, too.

While I think Dark Horse's Star Wars comics are great, didn't Marvel originally do Star Wars comics back when the OT was still in theatres?
