Marvel Comics has shared additional details about the Star Wars titles announced at New York Comic Con last weekend, including plans for Grand Admiral Thrawn, Jango Fett, and Mace Windu. Check it out!
In 2024, Marvel Comics will deliver a host of new adventures in the Galaxy Far, Far Away with the launch of even more Star Wars titles.
Last weekend, Lucasfilm held a publishing panel at New York Comic Con, and an all-star lineup of Star Wars talent joined Lucasfilm Publishing creative director Michael Siglain to give us a first look at what next year holds for Marvel Comics’ line of Star Wars comics.
The exciting announcements included an all-new limited series starring Mace Windu which will hit stands just in time for the 25th-anniversary celebration of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, a comic adaptation of Timothy Zahn’s New York Times #1 best-selling Thrawn: Alliances novel, and the return of Jango Fett.
Launching in January, Star Wars: Thrawn – Alliances will see Zahn team up with writer Jody Houser and artists Andrea Di Vito and Pat Olliffe to bring his groundbreaking chapter of Thrawn’s saga to Marvel Comics. In the story, we’ll witness the tactical prowess of the Galaxy’s most dangerous mind in action as Thrawn begins his legendary rise to power and forges a lasting and deadly partnership with Darth Vader.
And, if you’re still wondering how Thrawn knew Anakin Skywalker after watching Ahsoka, it will be this series which sheds light on that.
January also marks the explosive conclusion of Ethan Sacks’ Star Wars: Bounty Hunters with issue 42. Valance the bounty hunter has one final mission to complete…and it may indeed be his last. Can he and the crew fight their way past Boba Fett…and Jabba’s secret weapon? We’ll find out in a grand finale that’s been four years in the making.
In February, one of the greatest Jedi must stop an incendiary secret from falling into the wrong hands in Star Wars: Mace Windu, a new limited series written by Marc Bernardin and illustrated by Georges Jeanty. Even in the years before the Clone Wars, Mace Windu was known for his discipline, determination and combat skills.
When a scientist’s discovery threatens the balance of the galaxy, Mace is led down a treacherous path of mystery and action. The series will also introduce Azita Cruuz, a pirate with a deadly secret, who the Hutts and the Republic will stop at nothing to control.
Finally, in March, Ethan Sacks will continue to deliver action-packed storytelling set in Star Wars’ criminal underworld in Star Wars: Jango Fett. Alongside Star Wars veteran artist Luke Ross, Sacks continues the legacy of one of the greatest bounty hunters. A bounty to find! A mystery to solve! A treaty at risk! All this plus Aurra Sing in the mix! You’ll want to be there for Jango Fett’s brand-new mission.
“I’m very proud of Marvel’s Star Wars lineup in 2024 and grateful for the positive reaction the announcements got at the con,” Senior Editor Mark Paniccia says, reflecting on the announcements. “This isn’t the half of it though. I really wish I could tease more of what’s coming but Vader would have my throat!”
