Marvel released more details about its upcoming 30-issue maxi series, Star Wars: Age of …, this week in separate announcements and its December solicits.
The series, which features stories set in the Republic, Rebellion and Resistance eras, promises to be a gold mine for individual character stories and more, at least for now.
It was announced as 30 issues and, so far, there’s been no change or announcement saying otherwise. More details are expected at the Lucasfilm Publishing panel at New York Comic Con on Friday, Oct. 5 at 3 p.m. Eastern in Room 1A10.
At SDCC, Marvel and Lucasfilm revealed that Jody Houser will tackle the Star Wars: Age of Republic stories, Greg Pak will do the Star Wars: Age of Rebellion tales and Tom Taylor will be writing Star Wars: Age of Resistance.
On Sept. 18, Marvel divulged more information about the first block of issues, Age of (the) Republic, including covers for Star Wars: Age of Republic — Qui-Gon Jinn #1 and Star Wars: Age of Republic — Darth Maul #1.
Spanning eight issues and written by Jody Houser and illustrated by Luke Ross and Cory Smith, each issue is a one shot, “spotlighting “four of the greatest heroes and four of the coolest villains from the prequel films during the waning days of the Old Republic. Witness the never before seen moments that define the characters, the incredible battles that shaped them and the eternal conflict between the light and the dark, good and evil!”
The first two issues are due Dec. 5 (Qui-Gon Jinn) and Dec. 12 (Darth Maul).
Later issues, also one shots, include
_ Obi-Wan #1
_ Jango Fett #1
_ Special #1 (Hmm. Intriguing. We should know more at NYCC and in the January solicits)
_ Anakin Skywalker #1
_ Count Dooku #1
_ Padme Amidala #1
_ General Grevious #1
More details about Star Wars: Age of the Republic, which will be written by Greg Pak, and Star Wars: Age of the Resistance, being written by Tom Taylor, is likely at NYCC.Powered by Sidelines
