We knew that Marvel Comics was bringing its long-running Star Wars comic to an end in 2019. But the Lucasfilm Publishing panel at New York Comic Con has revealed what will be replacing it. A new Star Wars #1 by Charles Soule and Jesus Saiz, recently seen drawing Doctor Strange with Mark Waid, to much critical acclaim. It will begin in January 2020
A new Darth Vader #1 by Grek Pak and Raffaele Ienco of Epic Kill, beginning in February 2020.
And it begins with Luke Skywalker losing his hand.
So, just as the earlier series was set between A New Hope and Empire Strike Back, look for this to take place just after Empire Strikes Back and to fill in the space between then and Return Of The Jedi.
