Star Wars out this week: Vader, Maul and Poe (oh my)

It’ll be a big Wednesday for comic fans, with three originals and two reprint collections. For single issues, you have Darth Vader #2, Darth Maul #4 and the Poe Dameron Annual #1 (which also has an alternate cover, naturally.)

The reprints are our first trade for Doctor Aphra, collecting #1-6, and the second for Poe Dameron, collecting #8-13.

Star Wars out this week: New Darth Vader #1

Those looking for brand-new comics have two options this Wednesday: Darth Vader #1 (yes, another one – this time set just after Revenge of the Sith) and Rogue One #3.

There’s also a hardcover collection of Star Wars, Volume 2. It collects Star Wars #15-#25, plus Annual #1, and comes in a David Aja or Terry Dodson cover.

Marvel’s Darth Vader relaunching as post-ROTS series

Marvel is doing a second Darth Vader ongoing series. Written by Charles Soule with art Giuseppe Camuncoli, it begins just after Revenge of the Sith. It will feature Vader building his red lightsaber and hunting down surviving Jedi. Soule told StarWars.com he considers the series to be “Vader: Year One.”

The previous Vader series was written by Kieron Gillen and ran for 25 issues. It was set in the gap between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. Gillen is currently helming the Doctor Aphra ongoing, which spun off the first series.

Marvel has consistently only been running three Star Wars ongoings t time – right now that’s Star Wars, Doctor Aphra and Poe Dameron. It’s possible they might begin winding down Poe – which Soule also writes – for this new Vader.

The new Darth Vader #1 will be out in June.
