Marvel Revives Classic Star Wars Series as Matthew Rosenberg Quits Twitter Again

Superstar comic book writer Matthew Rosenberg really is living out his childhood dreams. That bastard. Not only has Rosenberg become the sole writer of Uncanny X-Men, but now he will bring back Marvel's classic Star Wars comic book series, albeit for one issue only, in May.

Marvel media partner was given the EX-X-XCLUSIVE reveal on Star Wars #108 by their feudal lord Akira Yoshida. Rosenberg will write, with artists including Giuseppe Camuncoli, Luke Ross, Kerry Gammill, and Andrea Broccardo, as well as a cover by Walt Simonson. This issue will basically be like one of those Marvel Legacy one-shots that brought back long-dead titles for a single issue, except with Star Wars.

Rosenberg, who we will remind you has quit Twitter, returned to Twitter briefly (again) to brag about the new gig.

Matthew, how can we miss you if you never leave?

Star Wars #108 will hit stores on May 29th. Check out the solicit below.

Star Wars #108

Strap yourselves in!

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.
