With artist John Cassaday leaving Marvel’s flagship Star Wars series after issue #6 in June, the publisher says it’s got another critical and customer favorite illustrator locked-in to replace him: Stuart Immonen.
In a statement released March 17, Marvel and Lucasfilm said that Immonen, whose previous work includes runs on All-New X-Men and All-New Captain America, will join series writer Jason Aaron starting with issue #8 in July.
An artist for issue #7 is set to be announced.
So far, Star Wars has drawn critical and customer acclaim, with its debut issue selling more than 1 million copies worldwide.
Matt Moore has been perpetrating journalism since 1985, reveling in Star Wars since 1977 and reading comics since 1974.
