I’m not sure if I have a burning desire to find out what happened between the first two Star Wars films A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. It feels like if there was originally anything terribly interesting there George Lucas would have filled us in over 30 years ago. But for those of you who are bigger Star Wars fans than me (which is pretty much everyone) it should be good news that Marvel is reuniting with the franchise for a run of three separate comic books series that fill in the blanks between those two films (including the moment Darth Vader learned he was Luke Skywalker’s father).
The series will be called simply Star Wars, Darth Vader and Princess Leia (with only the latter getting a multi-issue run apparently). Hit the jump for more info and artwork from the new Star Wars comics.
