    Marvel has announced a new series featuring our favorite scoundrel and his companion. Han Solo and Chewbacca will be getting their own ongoing series starting in March 2022, simply titled Han Solo & Chewbacca. The series will take place a before A New Hope but after Solo: A Star Wars Story.



    The series was announced by StarWars.com with a brief synopsis:



    Here is the full cover for issue #1:

    Writer Marc Guggenheim's previous Star Wars work includes writing on the Age of Republic and Age of Rebellion comic series. StarWars.com sat down Guggenheim to discuss the series. Guggenheim is meeting Han at an interesting time in his life, saying:



    Han Solo isn't going to face these 'opportunities' alone. Chewbacca is always going to be by his side. Guggenheim touched on this and even gave a tidbit on a special issue from the point of view of the Wookiee:



    As mentioned above, the kickoff story features Han teaming up with Greedo, which should be an interesting dynamic given we know how it pans out later. He compared the first issue to a classic movie:



    One thing that has been unpredictable lately in regards to Han Solo-related stories is who pops up. War of the Bounty Hunters saw Solo's lost love Qi'ra coming back, and now Guggenheim is teasing his own crazy twist at the end of the first issue. He also talked about connecting his story to others in this era of Star Wars comics:



    There's no way it's Qi'ra again, right? Who else is in Han's past that could appear and complicate things? We'll have to see come March when the first issue releases.



    StarWars.com also revealed a number of issue #1 variant covers which you can check out below:

    If they make a Disney+ series they're definitely using the other guy.
