Greg Pak, Phil Noto Take over Star Wars at Marvel in July

It looks like Greg Pak and Phil Noto will be the new creative team of Marvel's main Star Wars title starting in July, at least according to the Amazon listing for November's Star Wars Vol. 12 trade paperback collection, as noticed by redditor gorosaur on Reddit's /r/starwarscomics.

The trade paperback, which collects Star Wars #68-75, lists Pak as writer and Noto as illustrator on the title. Writer Kieron Gillen's long run on the title ends with June's Star Wars #67.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
