Since Star Wars has returned to its publishing home, Marvel has been on a roll with new tie in comics. Star Wars, Darth Vader and Princess Leia have proved that force is in fact strong with these titles.
They are also designed to create a new canon to separate themselves from the previous Dark Horse titles. Now, we get a glimpse into how Star Wars: The Force Awakens connects to the previous film Return of the Jedi with a new series entitled Shattered Empire. The series is set to debut in September.
Other titles will include:
Star Wars: Aftermath (Del Rey) Lost Stars (Disney-Lucasfilm Press) Smuggler’s Run: A Han Solo Adventure (Disney-Lucasfilm Press) The Weapon of a Jedi: A Luke Skywalker Adventure (Disney-Lucasfilm Press) Moving Target: A Princess Leia Adventure (Disney-Lucasfilm Press) Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know (DK) Star Wars: Journey to the Force Awakens (Marvel Comics) Star Wars: Journey to the Force Awakens-C-3PO (Marvel Comics) Star Wars: Ships of the Galaxy (Studio Fun International)
