With New York Comic Con only weeks away now, Marvel has released a teaser image online for its upcoming “Star Wars: Age of…” series which will hit shelves this December. The banner features images of all 24 characters across the three separate eras that we can expect to see once the series gets going.
If you recall, the announcement was made this past summer at San Diego Comic-Con about this series of one-offs along with a cover of one of the first issues to be released. The cover for that particular issue features Darth Maul and is part of the “Age of Republic” line, the first to be released.
Once the three eight-issue series gets released, it will arrive twice monthly focusing on one hero and one villain from each specific era. The series is expected to begin in December of this year and should end by November 2019. While we don’t know the artists, colorists, or letterers yet, that news is expected to be announced during New York Comic Con, we do know who the writers are and the order of the releases.
Here’s the breakdown...
Star Wars: Age of Republic written by Jody Houser – Qui-Gon Jinn, Darth Maul, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jango Fett, Anakin Skywalker, Count Dooku, Padmé Amidala, General Grievous.
Star Wars: Age of Rebellion written by Greg Pak – Lando Calrissian, Jabba the Hutt, Han Solo, Boba Fett, Luke Skywalker, Grand Moff Tarkin, Princess Leia Organa, Darth Vader.
Star Wars: Age of Resistance written by Tom Taylor – Poe Dameron, Supreme Leader Snoke, Finn, Captain Phasma, Rose Tico, General Hux, Rey, Kylo Ren.
