Age of Rebellion Comes to Marvel’s Star Wars Comics in April

Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Lando Calrissian, Darth Vader, Jabba the Hutt, and Grand Moff Tarkin are all getting comic book #1 issues starting in April as Marvel’s Age of Star Wars initiative shifts from the Age of Republic to the Age of Rebellion, focusing on characters from the original Star Wars trilogy.

A press release contains more details:

Marvel’s celebration of Star Wars characters continues this April, with epic one-shots of heroes and villains of the original film trilogy in AGE OF REBELLION!

Following the legendary sagas of the Jedi, the Sith, and more from AGE OF THE REPUBLIC, join writer Greg Pak (The Incredible Hulk, Weapon H) and artist Chris Sprouse (Black Panther) for new tales about some of the most iconic Star Wars heroes and artist Marc Laming (Beckett, Star Wars Annual) for new stories about the galaxy’s most dangerous villains. With covers by Terry and Rachel Dodson, these are stories you don’t want to miss!

Also in April, discover brand new sides of some of your favorite – and deadly – heroes and villains in AGE OF REBELLION SPECIAL #1, written by superstar team Marc Guggenheim (X-Men Gold), Jon Adams (The New Yorker, Love Romances), and Si Spurrier (Doctor Aphra), and drawn by Adams, Caspar Wijngaard (Doctor Aphra Annual), and Andrea Broccardo (Star Wars), with cover art by Giuseppe Camuncoli and Guru-eFX!

The Age of Republic will continue through March, though it’s already peaked with the release of a Jar Jar Binks story this week. Check out some art, as well as a checklist of new one-shots and series below.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
