Dark Horse is releasing its first Star Wars comic series in years this summer, and it’s taking the form of an exciting anthology across the saga.
a new starwars anthology series is brewing at Dark Horse Comics, and it’s looking like it’ll be a huge nostalgia trip as it explores new stories across the saga. When the mainline starwars films came to an end in 2019 with The Rise of Skywalkerit looked like there were no stories left to tell. Clone Wars TV series was wrapping up any loose ends between Episodes II and III with its final season, and there was very little left to tell revolving around the iconic characters that fans fell in love with during its 45-year journey. This year though, Dark Horse Comics is promising that there’s actually so much more to tell.
For the most part, most starwars comic series have focused more on expanding the lore and worlds of the beloved galaxy far, far away. With big hits from Marvel like Doctor Aphra and The Halcyon Legacyfans have been able to learn more about the world of starwars through the eyes of newer characters. This year though seems to be a return to exploring the iconic characters as Obi Wan, Han Solo & Chewbacca and a comic adaptation of The Mandalorian’s first season hit store shelves. Now, Dark Horse is jumping on this opportunity with its first starwars comic series in seven years that will span the entire saga.
According to Dark Horse, Star Wars: Hyperspace Stories is a 12-issue miniseries that will send fans of the movies on a trip down memory lane. This new series will feature “stories set in every era of the Star Wars timeline“with several”fan-favorite heroes and villains“making appearances. The new series is expected to include all-star creators like Cecil Castellucci and Michael Moreci to bring them to life and will be fun for the whole family to read as it’s expected to reach for an all-ages demographic. With a stronger focus on the films and iconic characters that everyone knows, this is sure to be a comic that even the most casual starwars fan can enjoy.
To get readers excited, Dark Horse has released information on what the first issue has in store. Taking place during the Clone Wars, Star Wars: Hyperspace Stories #1 by Amanda Deibert and Lucas Marangon will follow Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi as they try to rescue Padmé Amidala from General Grievous. However, things quickly go south as “the Jedi find themselves cut off and surrounded by an army of battle droids!Knowing Anakin and Obi-Wan, it’s sure to be an epic battle and is a perfect stage setter for where this anthology will go as it begins where it all started.
Star Wars: Hyperspace Stories is set to begin its epic traversal through the saga when it hits comic store shelves on August 10th, 2022. The new series is available for pre-order and the first issue is expected to have a special variant cover crafted by comic artist Miguel Valderrama. This is an exciting year to be a starwars fan.
