If you're hungry for more Han Solo stories after his death in The Force Awakens (and can't wait until May 25th, 2018), then you're in luck! Marvel comics is launching a new mini-series about the smuggler turned general in June. The series is written by Marjorie Liu (Astonishing X-Men) with art by Mark Brooks. The series, set between Episode IV and V, features Han Solo entering a deadly spaceship race (a calling he would later return to following the fall of the Empire, as seen in Star Wars: Bloodline by: Claudia Gray). The series was first announced back in March and today Nerdist posted an exclusive preview of the series. Check it out part of that preview below,
Marvel also released the official description for Han Solo #1,
“Han Solo has finally entered his ship into the Dragon Void Run – an infamous high-stakes race across the stars. You know, the race Han has dreamt of winning. Only there’s a catch – his entry into this legendary race is a top-secret undercover mission for Princess Leia and the Rebellion! Will he keep his mind on the mission? More importantly – can he manage to pull it off while still maintaining his lead in the race?!”
Marvel's Star Wars: Han Solo #1 hits shelves on June 15th!
