Marvel held their big panel today at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, making a few reveals about what's coming down the pipe with Star Wars comics. First off, it was announced that Issue #7 of the ongoing Star Wars comic will actually be an Obi-Wan story set on Tatooine! This likely be some sort of flashback to between Episodes III and IV, as the main series is set between Episodes IV and V. The issue will be drawn Simone Bianchi.
It was also announced that Greg Weisman will return to write the second series of Kanan-The Last Padawan. The Lando series they announced earlier this week will take place between Episodes IV and V and will feature Lobot! It debuts in July.
And finally it was confirmed that Greg Rucka and Marco Checchetto are the creative team behind Star Wars Journey to The Force Awakens: Shattered Empire, coming out later this year. As for a The Force Awakens adaptation, Marvel execs say they will do one, just not right away.
For more on the Marvel panel, Dan Brooks over StarWars.com did a live blog of the panel and features a blow-for-blow recap of the panel!
