Star Wars: Shattered Empire Preview


By Ciaran Duggan

The front cover of the first issue of the highly anticipated comic series – Star Wars: Shattered Empire - has been unveiled on the Star Wars website today.

The comic series will serve to tie in the 30 year gap between the climax of ROTJ [Return of the Jedi] and the opening of TFA [The Force Awakens]. Here is the first look at the front cover of issue #1, as illustrated by Marco Checchetto:

In the exclusive unveiling, illustrator Marco Checchetto and writer Greg Rucka had this to say:

“I will never, ever get tired of writing the words, ‘A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…’,” Rucka said. “This is the mythology of my life, and to be a part of it, no matter how small, is both humbling and exciting. Working with Marco on this is only making it better, and being able to work in this mythology is an honor and a responsibility we’re both taking very, very seriously!

“It’s amazing that a boy from a small town near Venice in Italy has the opportunity to be part of Star Wars,” Checchetto said. “I grew up with this mythos and it’s an honor to work on it with Greg. I’m very happy to draw again his fantastic scripts. We will do our best to add a little piece of history to that galaxy far, far away…”

The comic is set for a September release, so stay tuned for more updates on the content of the Marvel series in the near future.
