In celebration of Marvel's 80th Anniversary, this Legends-era sequel to legendary comic book writer Archie Goodwin’s 'Crimson Forever' reunites Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, C-3PO, and R2-D2 with Jaxxon, Amaiza Foxtrain, Domina Tagge, and Valance the Hunter in a galaxy-threatening, nostalgic roller coaster! Strap yourselves in!
Matthew Rosenberg will write the story with art by Giuseppe Camuncoli, Luke Ross, Kerry Gammill, Andrea Broccardo and more. Walter Simonson provided the art for the main cover and Carmine Infantino did the art for a variant.
