A Sith Unleashed in Your First Look at STAR WARS: DARTH MAUL #1!
On Sale February 1st!
New York, NY – January 9th, 2016 – This February, hatred has a new face. But first, Marvel Entertainment & Lucasfilm Ltd. are pleased to present your first look inside STAR WARS: DARTH MAUL #1 – the next thrilling Star Wars limited series comes to comic shops and digital devices everywhere! Blockbuster writer Cullen Bunn (Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe, Monsters Unleashed) and artist Luke Ross (Star Wars: The Force Awakens Adaptation) take you inside the mind of Darth Sidious’ star pupil as he embarks on a personal quest – with deadly consequences!
It’s never easy losing a friend, an idol, an icon. The loss of Carrie Fisher is one we won’t forget and will feel, acutely, through 2017 and beyond.
It’s among the reasons this episode starts somber, and for good reason, but we never lose sight of the hope that Star Wars brings its legion of fans and the community that has built itself up around the Saga.
Oh my. So much Star Wars comics from November in this episode.
So much we even had to include an issue from December, too, to be sure we got them all.
How many? Six. Just like the original trilogy plus the prequel trilogy.
Is this thing on? Can you hear us? Are we getting through?
YES WE ARE!
After a technical snafu delayed Jeff McGee and Matt Moore, the daring duo have roared back into the Dragon Run to give it another go and what a go it was, what with the latest issues of Star Wars, Star Wars: Poe Dameron and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Welcome to The Star Wars Canon Dispatch, an unofficial monthly contextual look at the recent and upcoming releases in Star Wars storytelling. The last four weeks of Star Wars have been full of news and excitement, but not much has been released in terms of consumable stories. On the heels of Star Wars: Aftermath: Life Debt, the influx of stories slowed a bit. However, several new Star Wars stories are on the horizon. Read more
It’s no secret that Marvel’s Star Wars: Darth Vader series has been among its consistently top-selling titles, finding a home in the monthly top 10 titles since it began nearly two years ago.
Now, as August gets underway, the series last two issues — Nos. 24 and 25 — will debut, bringing to a conclusion the story of Darth Vader’s attempts at redemption in the aftermath of the devastating loss of the Death Star in A New Hope.
To mark the event, Marvel unveiled a host of variant covers for the final, oversized 56-page issue, which has been delayed to Oct. 5 from Aug. 31. It’ll sell for $5.99.

Jay’s Galactic Espressions
On my 46th birthday (July 16), I was reduced to my 10-year-old self. I laughed, jumped for joy, squeed more than a few times, and quite literally performed at least one happy dance. My eyes were a little brighter, and my steps a little lighter. All because of Star Wars.
And that’s a good thing…a VERY good thing!
When it comes to Star Wars, I’m a big kid at heart anyway, as I’m most (or all) of you reading this right now can relate. Overall, it’s a great time to be a Star Wars fan, but with all of the news that came out of Star Wars Celebration Europe (SWCE) over the last few days, my kid-o-meter has flown off the charts!
