SDCC ’14: Marvel Announces Three New Star Wars Titles

The first of the three titles, simply called Star Wars, by Jason Aaron (Thor: God of Thunder) and John Cassaday (Uncanny Avengers) will launch in January. The series takes places right after the destruction of the first Death Star and depicts Leia, Han, Luke’s battle with Darth Vader.

The second title is Star Wars: Darth Vader, launching in February by Kieron Gillen (Iron Man) and Salvador Larroca (Cable and X-Force). It has an interesting take as it’s told from the galaxy far, far away’s most iconic villain as he attempts to regain control of the Empire after they were defeated by the Rebel Alliance in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

The third title is Star Wars: Princess Leia by Mark Waid (Daredevil) and Terry Dodson (X-Men). The series will follow the exploits of Princess Leia on various missions after the Battle Of Yavin and the destruction of her home planet, Alderaan.
