Marvel Star Wars Comics Coming in April: A Double Dose of Darth Vader, A Visit to Mon Cala and Back to Jakku

April’s Marvel Star Wars comics will take us to Mon Cala, three times, introduce us to Arihnda Pryce, revisit Hera and go back to Jakku. (Why does everyone want to go back to Jakku?!!?) Look for Galactic Icon cover variants by Rod Reis, too.
Interested? Read on!

Out April 4 is Star Wars #46. The final order cutoff date is March 12. It’s by Kieron Gillen, Salvador Larroca and has covers by David Marquez, Reise and John Tyler Christopher, whose action-figure variants remain a fan and collector favorite.

“The Rebellion continues their mission to liberate Mon Cala! Princess Leia has a nearly impossible plan to unite the planet with the Rebel Alliance, one that counts on the unique skills and cultural know-how belonging to the one-and-only… See-Threepio?!”

On sale April 11 is Darth Vader #14 and Thrawn #3. Final cutoff order date for both issues is March 19.

In Darth Vader #14, the Dark Lord travels to Mon Cala to quash any sentiment of rebellion against the Empire. The story by Charles Soule, with art by Giuseppe Camuncoli and covers by Camuncoli, Elia Bonetti and Reis.

Star Wars: Thrawn #3 is by Jody Houser and Luke Ross, with covers by Paul Renaud and Rahzzah.

Thrawn’s rise continues, but so, too has Arihnda Pryce’s “as she, too, rises through the corrupt Coruscant political climate. But paths cross in mysterious ways as the two discover a dark secret within the Empire.”

It’s back to Jakku in the pages of Poe Dameron #26 as the awakening begins. On sale April 18, with a final order cutoff of March 26, it’s by Charles Soule and Angel Unzueta, with cover by Phil Noto.

Thrawn #3

Poe Dameron #26

“Lor San Tekka has been found and Poe Dameron is off to recover the missing link to Luke Skywalker’s whereabouts. But his plan goes astray when the First Order intervenes on Jakku … Follow Poe Dameron’s adventures during the unseen events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

Doctor Aphra is being hunted by Hera Syndulla AND Tolvan in issue #19, while in Darth Vader #15, the Dark Lord is aquatic. Both are out April 25. Final cutoff order for both is April 2.

Doctor Aphra #19 is by Gillen, Si Spurrier and Emilio Laiso, with covers by Ashley M. Witter and Reis.

The “Remastered” arc continues, Marvel notes:

“Evil droid mastermind Triple-Zero has been blackmailing Doctor Aphra into stealing his old memories which also has included sneaking onto Rebel training grounds run by General Hera Syndulla. Now hunted by both Hera of the Rebellion and Tolvan of the Empire, Aphra’s got a lot on her mind. But if there’s anything to know about the Doctor, it’s that she’s always got tricks up her electro sleeve.!”

(True that!)
