As Marvel ramps up towards the December release of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," the folks over at MakingStarWars.net have found information regarding Marvel's Star Wars trade paperback releases scheduled for this fall. While Marvel has yet to formally announce it, the solicitation information reveals that Greg Rucka may be writing the upcoming "Journey to the Force Awakens: Shattered Empire" series.
The "Journey to the Force Awakens" comic initiative was announced back in mid-March, but with no creators attached to the first title. "Shattered Empire," along with the rest of the "Journey" series, will fill in the gap between "Return of the Jedi" and "The Force Awakens." As evidenced in the screenshot below, no artist has been listed for the series.
Marvel Comics declined to comment when approached by CBR News.
Solicitation information for the upcoming "Return of the Jedi (Remastered Edition)" has been found, along with the cover art by Adi Granov. The "ROTJ" remastered edition is expected in stores on November 10.
