Marvel’s main Star Wars title is ending – for now

Marvel’s flagship Star Wars title is ending in November with issue #75. io9 reached out to Marvel after seeing the solicitation, and they confirmed it – but said we’ll learn more next month. Below, two of the covers:

A relaunch is inevitable, but will they go the expected route of continuing within the original trilogy – the current series is approaching Empire Strikes Back – or jump to a totally different part of the timeline?

Meanwhile, StarWars.com has the previews for the Poe Dameron and General Hux issues of Age of Resistance, which are out later this month.

Star Wars out this week: Resistance on DVD, TIE Fighter, Doctor Aphra

Lots for comics readers this week, but also coming on Tuesday, August 20 is the Star Wars Resistance S1 DVD. I know a lot of folks are miffed this isn’t coming out on Blu-ray, but it can be purchased digitally – and the recent announcement that the show is only getting one more season means there’s been a lot of speculation that we might get a “Complete Series” Blu-ray later. Still, for those who don’t want to take chances (and with Disney+ in the mix, who knows if they’ll bother), this is your first shot at getting a physical copy of the season.

It’s a big comic haul on Wednesday, August 21, with three new issues and two trade collections from recent series. TIE Fighter #5 ends the mini, while Doctor Aphra #35 has an all-timer cover and Star Wars Adventures #24 begins a sequel-centric run.

Star Wars out this week: Leia, Tarkin launch Age of Rebellion

Age of Rebellion starts out double-strong with both Princess Leia and Grand Moff Tarkin. Then Star Wars Volume 10 collects issues #56-61 of Marvel’s flagship series for the franchise.

Out this week: Star Wars, Solo

Two comics, a Legends trade and a new Insider are our new releases for Wednesday, March 20.

Speaking of Legends, does Queen Trios’ headgear situation on the cover of Star Wars #63 remind anyone else of the old-school Sith from Dark Horse’s ’90s Tales of the Jedi comics? Homage? Coincidence? They’re both based off some old Flash Gordan serial? Anyway, there’s also Solo #6, Star Wars Insider #188, and back to Legends, volume three reprinting of Dark Horse’s ’00s Knights of the Old Republic series.
