The Star Wars canon received a hard restructuring in the wake of Disney’s Lucasfilm deal, and the rebooted Marvel comic series has provided a fascinating peek into the galaxy far, far away. Well, here’s where it’s going next.
The Star Wars comic series recently wrapped the ambitious Vader Down arc, but a brand-new story is set to kick off in Star Wars #16 in February. Dubbed “Rebel Jail,” it’ll continue to follow the old guard (Luke, Han, Leia, Chewie, etc.) as they attempt to break into a prison base. Yeah, that sounds like something that will totally not go wrong. The arc will be written by Jason Aaron, with art by Leinil Yu. Both of whom are awesome, so yay.
Here’s an excerpt from Marvel’s official synopsis:
Following the events of Vader Down, the Rebels travel to a prison base with their high-value detainee Doctor Aphra in tow. Unfortunately, they aren’t the only ones with eyes on the prison! With the base under siege by mysterious foes, can Luke, Han, Leia, Chewie and the Droids prevent a mass breakout? Be there as the exciting new story arc begins this February in STAR WARS #16!
