Damn!! It just seems that the folks at Marvel have the magic touch these days. The latest recipient of the Marvel mojo – Star Wars. Yeah, that’s right, Marvel Entertainment hooked up with Lucasfilm to bring you a comic series that expands the Star Wars canon.
The all-star creative team of Jason Aaron (Thor, Original Sin), artist John Cassaday (Astonishing X-Men) and colorist Laura Martin bring a galaxy far, far away to life like never before as the adventures of the Rebel Alliance continue following the events of Star Wars: A New Hope. “Every story is about the characters, and we’ll focus on all the old favorites,” writer Jason Aaron told Marvel.com. “There will be big moments for everyone, from Han to R2-D2. But a major part of the narrative will be driven by Luke Skywalker and his journey of discovery, a journey that will decide the fate of the entire galaxy.”
So what can you expect? Marvel gave ‘LLERO a sneak peak and trust us, visually it’s the bomb. We wouldn’t clown you on this. Story-wise, we’ve been sworn to secrecy (know we know how those actors feel) but we can say that the series takes place immediately after the destruction of the first Death Star, Luke, Leia, Han, Chewie, R2-D2 and C-3PO attempt to liberate the galaxy from Darth Vader and the tyranny of the Empire!
