    Marvel is about ready to launch a series of one-shots covering multiple eras of the Star Wars franchise, and they've shared the first image (which covers twenty-four characters from three separate eras) to entice readers with.





    Marvel has released a new image to the press ahead of their New York Comic Con presentation on October 5, which will feature all-new information on this 24-issue series. (Previously, it was announced that the series would be 30 issues; the six-issue discrepancy has yet to be explained by Lucasfilm and could potentially point to the existence of one-shots about additional characters who aren't confined to a specific era.) You can see it below:






    The Age of Star Wars series will be released twice monthly with eight issues per era, focusing on one hero and one villain from each specific trilogy. The maxi-series will begin in December 2018 and will end in November 2019 - just in time for Star Wars Episode IX. To get more specific, Age of Republic will be released from December 2018 to March 2019, Age of Rebellion will be released from April 2019 to July 2019, and Age of Resistance will be released from August 2019 to November 2019. The writers involved with these comics, and the characters involved in each story, are as follows:



    Star Wars: Age of Republic by Jody Houser
    • Qui-Gon Jinn
    • Darth Maul
    • Obi-Wan Kenobi
    • Jango Fett
    • Anakin Skywalker
    • Count Dooku
    • Padmé Amidala
    • General Grevious
    Star Wars: Age of Rebellion by Greg Pak
    • Lando Calrissian
    • Jabba the Hutt
    • Han Solo
    • Boba Fett
    • Luke Skywalker
    • Grand Moff Tarkin
    • Princess Leia Organa
    • Darth Vader
    Star Wars: Age of Resistance by Tom Taylor
    • Poe Dameron
    • Supreme Leader Snoke
    • Finn
    • Captain Phasma
    • Rose Tico
    • General Hux
    • Rey
    • Kylo Ren
    Please note that, aside from the ordering in the Age of Republic series, which has been confirmed by Marvel, the release order for each issue listed here is tentative. Age of Resistance is also said to answer many of the fanbase's lingering questions about The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. With that in mind, we'll be getting information about the series when the panel is held at NYCC in less than a month.

    I guess most fans will anxiously await the Snoke one. ;) There's not much you can do with one-shots, but I'm looking forward to this series. Hope it's gonna be good.

    Sounds good but will probably wait & get each Age as a TPB (as long as they release them in that format)
    But will be keeping a eye on the SWNN reviews & if one sound particularly good I can always pick it up when it’s released.

    While I don’t really like the films that much, I am really happy they are diving into the prequel era more. Also, fingers crossed this is the best.
    I am also looking forward to the Age of Rebellion and Age of Resistance Series’s as well.
    I do really hope the Rebellion one focuses on some different characters. Characters like Luke, Leia, Lando, Vader, etc. have gotten so much attention already.
    While I do love most of the books/ comics they are featured in, I’m hoping these eight issues give some other galactic civil war characters some time to shine.
