There was a lot to love about last December’s The Force Awakens. The new kids on the block. The old schoolers. The aliens. BB-freaking-8. No doubt every moviegoer experienced all of the feels. However everyone and their grandmother absolutely abhorred that scene. You know the one… with the catwalk and the painfully obvious foreshadowing and familial angst. Despite it being canon and no way reversible, fans can at least harken back to a time when the galaxy’s most affable rogue was able to sweet talk, hustle and connive his way out of any situation!
In June, Marvel will release yet another Star Wars limited series. This time featuring the one and only Han Solo, who is once more in the thick of it during one of his earliest missions for the Rebellion!
Per the press release, about the premise of Solo’s adventures:
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?!
The intergalactic actioner is written by Marjorie Liu and illustrated by Mark Brooks, with cover by Lee Bermejo. Expect plenty of shootouts in cantinas and wisecracking while avoiding Star Destroyers as Han and Chewie get themselves in all kinds of trouble in Star Wars: Han Solo #1 this June!
