There’s some exciting news for fans of both Marvel and Star Wars today! Check out the full announcement from the Official Site below:

MARVEL ANNOUNCES STAR WARS LEGENDS EPIC COLLECTION

Marvel Entertainment announced today the release of an oversized dose of a galaxy far, far, away — Star Wars comics are coming to Marvel’s prestigious Epic Collection format — Star Wars Legends Epic Collection: The Empire Vol. 1 TPB.

Let the dark times begin! Marvel welcomes Star Wars to the Epic Collection program, with this first volume of a series focusing on the years that follow Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith! After the end of the Clone Wars, the Republic has fallen and Palpatine exerts his ruthless grip on his new Galactic Empire. Now, the few Jedi that remain must decide whether to hold true to their faith, or abandon it completely in the face of a brutal purge — one carried out by the new Dark Lord of the Sith. Rise, Darth Vader!

“We’re thrilled to be bringing our innovative Epic Collections to a galaxy far, far away,” says Marvel SVP sales & marketing David Gabriel. “We’ll be bouncing around to different periods of Star Wars history with each Epic Collection, constructing one huge tapestry, collecting full unbroken runs of all the greatest Star Wars comics from the past 35 years.”

Star Wars Legends Epic Collection: The Empire Vol. 1 TPBwill offer a new way for fans to collect and read iconic Star Wars stories across the past 35 years of published titles. These oversized, self-contained color collections will bring the adventures of the Rebellion, the Galactic Empire and more to the masses with exciting new Epic Collections. Get a first look at the special collection’s cover art below!

    This is wonderful news for readers! I look forward to adding this — and those that follow — to my bookshelves (after reading, of course 😉 ). I see I am going to have to find more room for all my Star Wars books/graphic novels. Maybe I’ll have to turn one of the girl’s bedrooms into a library. 😉 Of course, this begs the question — what will we do when they come home? Like Scarlett, I’ll think about the answer to that query another day. 😉
