Wednesday sees the release of the first new Star Wars comic since Marvel took the license back from Dark Horse Comics and I was beyond curious to see how Marvel would handle the relaunch. It was anyone's guess how this might or might not sync up with the sort of stories we've been getting.
There are few things certain in this world, but one of those few things I'm most excited about is that more Star Wars is coming. Next year sees the release of the first new Star Wars film in a decade and October sees the release of a brand new animated series in the world.
Lucasfilm announced today, via Publishers Weekly, four brand new books aimed at introducing new readers to the classic Star Wars saga by bridging the "multi-arc storyline in anticipation of the release of Star Wars Episode VII in December 2015."
