A five-part series, Marvel’s newest Star Wars comic stars none other than the scruffy smuggler himself – Han Solo.
Han Solo has finally entered his ship into the Dragon Void Run – an infamous high-stakes race across the stars. You know, the race Han has dreamt of winning. Only there’s a catch – his entry into this legendary race is a top-secret undercover mission for Princess Leia and the Rebellion! Will he keep his mind on the mission? More importantly – can he manage to pull it off while still maintaining his lead in the race?!
The race is on as Han, Chewie and the Falcon blast off this June for the highly anticipated HAN SOLO #1 – coming to comic shops and digital devices!
Well it’s about time. One of the biggest characters in the whole of Star Wars, and one of the best-loved too, Han Solo hadn’t seen a comic book series to call his own despite Leia, Lando, and more getting shots since Marvel took over the license. Not that those pervious series’ haven’t been on the money, because they’ve pretty much all been solid to great, but this is Han Solo we’re talking about.
And this new series should be a good one, with a five-issue run that will walk the line, showing Han and Chewy in both their natural habitat (the shady, criminal underground) and carrying out a secret mission for the Alliance. No slouch in the creative team department, the book will star the talents of Marjorie Liu and Mark Brooks, with cover art from the great Lee Bermejo, among others (for the variant editions).
Make the jump to lightspeed when Star Wars: Han Solo #1 speeds onto the racks on June 15th.
