Get your first full look at Marvel's 'Star Wars' #1

Posted on

Star Wars 01

Next week marks the start of a new era for Star Wars with the launch of Marvel’s Star Wars #1 by the all-star team of Jason Aaron, John Cassaday, and Laura Martin. Not only will it be the first Marvel-published Star Wars book in over 20 years, but it’s the next entry in the brand-new Star Wars canon.

Set between episodes IV and V, the book will focus on the adventures of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Princess Leia following the Death Star’s destruction. It’s also quite possibly the biggest comic of 2015, expected to sell one million copies—the first comic in two decades to do so.

Want to know what it’ll be like?

Courtesy of Marvel, here’s your first look at lettered pages from next week’s Star Wars #1. If it’s any indication of what’s in store, it might just live up to the hype.

Star Wars #1 will launch on Jan. 14, 2015.
