Star Wars: Empire Ascendant Wraps Up Marvel's Ongoing Star Wars Storyline
Sep 20, 2019
While Star Wars #75 (SEP190953) will be the final issue of the current ongoing Star Wars comic series. The storyline will come to a succinct and complete close in December with the release of the Star Wars: Empire Ascendant One-Shot (OCT191072).
According a blog post on StarWars.com, the one-shot will see "the Rebel Alliance — Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, and Han Solo among them — building up Echo Base on the ice planet of Hoth while Darth Vader tries to locate the headquarters in vain." In addition, fans can look forward to discovering "the fates of Doctor Aphra and Beilert Valance."
Given that the current Star Wars comic continuity takes place between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, it's fitting that the story will come to a close on Hoth, setting the stage for the events of Episode V. After four years of canon comics, it all comes down to one epic one-shot.
Star Wars: Empire Ascendant (OCT191072) is available to pre-order now at your local comic shop and is slated to hit shelves on December 18th. Just in time for the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker on December 20th.
