Upcoming Marvel SW series – Shattered Empire and Lando!

The Empire has fallen. It is now a time for resurgence. It is a time for new beginnings. This September, Marvel Comics and Lucasfilm are excited to present the newest chapter of the Star Wars mythos with Star Wars: Journey to The Force Awakens – Shattered Empire written by comic book legend, Greg Rucka (Cyclops) with art by Marco Checchetto (Avengers World).

 

Created in close partnership with Lucasfilm, this new Marvel Comics limited series will exist as part of the canon for the Star Wars universe and will offer a glimpse into December’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens!

 

“The world has been wondering what happened after the fall of the Empire since the credits first rolled on ‘Return of the Jedi’ in 1983,” says series editor Jordan D. White. “Now, on the dawn of the next chapter of the saga, we’re incredibly proud to be involved in revealing the events that happen immediately following the end of ‘Return of the Jedi’!”

Once again, Marvel brings the biggest creators in the industry to the biggest characters in a galaxy far, far away. Be there when the Star Wars line expands this September in Star Wars: Journey to the Force Awakens – Shattered Empire #1!

You know him. You love him. Prepare to see a side of him you’ve never seen before as the galaxy’s smoothest gambler, entrepreneur, and smuggler gets his very own series! Today, Marvel Entertainment and Lucasfillm Ltd. are pleased to announce LANDO #1 – a brand new Star Wars limited series coming this July from Marvel Comics! Join Lando on his greatest caper ever as blockbuster creators Charles Soule (Death of Wolverine, Inhuman, She-Hulk) and Alex Maleev (Daredevil, Spider-Woman, Moon Knight) bring you a new tale of a scoundrel in his natural element – trouble!

 

“Is Lando Calrissian the coolest character in all of Star Wars? Depends on who you ask, probably. But if you ask me, the answer is yes, and I plan to prove it with this story,” says series writer Charles Soule.

 

Before he joined the rebellion, before he oversaw mining operations on Bespin – he was just Lando. Making his way in the galaxy and getting by on good looks, charm, and an ace up his sleeve (sometimes literally). With his cyborg aide Lobot at his side, Lando has plans to steal one of the galaxy’s most valuable ships. Yet even with his swindles and unparalleled swagger – has he bitten off more than he can chew?

 

“Before Cloud City, before his glorious Death Star run,” continues Soule, “Lando Calrissian was just a man trying to make his way through an uncaring universe determined not to recognize that he was undeniably the coolest man in the galaxy. But Lando’s got a plan to change all that… and it starts with the deal of a lifetime.”
