Summer’s languorous July days won’t be lacking for adventure, intrigue and deepening mysteries among Marvel’s line of Star Wars comics, as old friends Obi-Wan Kenobi and Lando Calrissian make their debut.
In Star Wars No. 7, out July 8, writer Jason Aaron pens a one-shot tale about Obi-Wan Kenobi on Tatooine in a story illustrated by Simone Bianchi. The issue focuses on the risks Ben must take as he deals with the villainous scum that have let injustice reign on the planet he calls home.
The first two issues of the five-part mini-series focused on Lando — trusty Lobot by his side — bring the famed gambler, administrator and scoundrel into the Marvel fold.
The Charles Soule-written and Alex Maleev-illustrated story gives readers a view of Lando before he ran Cloud City and fought for the Rebel Alliance. The first issue is on sale July 1, while #2 is in comic shops on July 22.
