Marvel Star Wars Comics Coming in August: Beckett’s Backstory, Vader’s Fortress, Killing Hope and Lando’s Lament

Marvel Star Wars Comics Coming in August: Beckett’s Backstory, Vader’s Fortress, Killing Hope and Lando’s Lament

The backstory on Solo: A Star Wars Story’s Beckett leads Marvel’s August Star Wars comics offerings, but Darth Vader is close behind, followed by Poe Dameron as both titles are double the suspense, while in the pages of The Last Jedi Adaptation, Rey takes on Kylo and Snoke.

Such are the events in the nine — count ’em, nine! — Star Wars comics.

It’ll be a month filled with daring adventure, deep reflection, high adventure and high stakes, all of it playing out in the pages of Star Wars: Beckett, Star Wars 52, Darth Vader 19 and 20, Doctor Aphra 23, The Last Jedi Adaptation 5, Lando — Double or Nothing 4 and Poe Dameron 30 and Annual 2.

So don’t forget to let your local comic shop know what you want and order early and often.
