Marvel’s Star Wars Book is hitting Milestone Issue with Star Wars # 50
Star Wars # 50 is just around the corner and Marvel has begun slowly peeling away their plans for the milestone issue which will be written by Keiron Gillen with art by Salvador Larroca.
The new arc which will start in Star Wars # 50 will be called “Hope Dies” and will be set in between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. According to the writer, the main setting for the story transpires with the Rebels finishing up on preparations on their secret fleet, with the only other problem being that the Empire kinda knows the secret.
To celebrate this publishing milestone, Marvel has released covers for the upcoming issue with David Marquez delivering a foreboding image of Darth Vader, and Mike Mayhew depicting a stylized Princess Leia with schematics of various vehicle designs overlaid on the image.
