Marvel Comics continues to expand its offerings in the Star Wars universe with this summer’s new monthly Star Wars: Han Solo. Marvel released the first images of the new series this week, including cover art by fan favorite artist Lee Bermejo. Here is the promotional summary for the series:
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?!
Urban fantasy author and Marvel Comics writer Marjorie Liu will script the series with interior art by Mark Brooks and cover art by Lee Bermejo, whose painted art always looks great in his distinctive style:
Over time Lee Bermejo’s work evokes Mike Grell’s painted work from years past. As to the interiors, Mark Brooks’ clean style and nice layouts set up a familiar environment that has a great Star Wars vibe.
Look for Star Wars: Han Solo, Issue #1, at Elite Comics, or your local comic book store, in June 2016.
