Body

With Disney purchasing Marvel, it was inevitable that Star Was would eventually return to Marvel Comics.

Previously, Disney officially announced that Marvel will be publishing new Star Wars comics next year, but now it's learned a reprint will be coming this October.

Marvel Comics released information that a Star Wars Omnibus will be published featuring the older Marvel Star Wars material.

Here is the solicit and cover for October:

Star Wars: The Original Marvel Years Omnibus HC CHAYKIN COVER

Written by ROY THOMAS, HOWARD CHAYKIN, ARCHIE GOODWIN, JO DUFFY & CHRIS CLAREMONT

Penciled by HOWARD CHAYKIN, CARMINE INFANTINO, WALTER SIMONSON, HERB TRIMPE, MICHAEL GOLDEN, AL WILLIAMSON & MIKE VOSBURG

Covers by HOWARD CHAYKIN & GREG HILDEBRANDT

As the phenomenon dawned in 1977, Marvel Comics published the very first STAR WARS comic-book series. Now, the House of Ideas is re-presenting those original adventures in its wampa-sized Omnibus format! It’s the return of the Jedi to Marvel in an opening volume that begins with A NEW HOPE and ends with THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. In between, the rebels face a wealth of new perils — from space pirate Crimson Jack to the bounty hunter Beilert Valance, as well as a surprisingly svelte Jabba the Hut (one “t”). Luke goes back to Tatooine, Leia battles alone, Han and Chewie play the deadly Big Game, and Darth Vader hunts for answers! With all your old favorites and plenty of new faces — hello, Jaxxon! — there’s no doubt, the Force is strong with this one! Collecting STAR WARS (1977) #1-44 and ANNUAL #1.
