Bespin refugee - June 20, 2024
Marvel Comics’ current era of Star Wars comics, set between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, comes to an end this September in STAR WARS #50 and STAR WARS: DARTH VADER #50.

Stay tuned in the weeks ahead for an announcement of what’s next for Marvel’s line of Star Wars comic books!


New York, NY— June 20, 2024 — For nearly five years, Marvel Comics has delivered Star Wars comic book series set in the largely unexplored period between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Across titles like Star Wars, Star Wars: Darth Vader, Star Wars: Doctor Aphra, and Star Wars: Bounty Hunters, fans have experienced the adventures Luke, Leia, Lando, and more iconic heroes embarked on during one of the darkest times for the Rebellion and discovered the trials Darth Vader overcame through during a pivotal turning point in his journey through the dark side. Now, this exciting chapter comes to an end in September with two over-sized epics: STAR WARS #50 and STAR WARS: DARTH VADER #50. Then, later this year, Marvel Comics will take readers to a different era of the galaxy, far, far away. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more information!

Both finale issues will be fifty-page extravaganzas! In Charles Soule and Madibek Musabekov’s STAR WARS #50, Jedi Master Luke Skywalker must teach his student Ben Solo a powerful lesson about the true balance between Light and Dark! He offers up a tale from the days of the Rebel Alliance that touches on multiple eras of Star Wars history, and brings this epic run to a thrilling, incredible climax!

Then, acclaimed writer Greg Pak closes out the longest-running Darth Vader comic series ever alongside artist Raffaele Ienco and more in STAR WARS: DARTH VADER #50. Pak’s run reaches its stunning conclusion as the Dark Heart of the Sith comes full circle! Darth Vader finally unleashes the unfathomable power he's accumulated through the Schism Imperial against the only person in the galaxy he hates more than he hates himself – Emperor Palpatine! Also featuring the final twists in the saga for key characters like Luke, Leia, Sabé, Ochi, the droid ZED-6-7, Sly Moore, the members of the Schism Imperial and more!

Check out Leinil Francis Yu’s main covers for both issues as well as a special connecting cover by Giuseppe Camuncoli. For more information, visit Marvel.com.

That's great .. I think Star wars deserve a professional treatment in the world of comics .. and who better to do that than Marvel .. I just hope they don't twist the story too much

What are you talking about? There's been Star Wars comics for decades (before Marvel it was Dark Horse and before Dark Horse it was Marvel), and Marvel's been publishing Star Wars Comics for several years straight now. That's why it says issue #50 instead of issue #1.
