It's all go at San Diego Comic Con as we get more Star Wars news and it's more Star Wars which is what everyone want's right?
Marvel will be bringing us a new line of comic books based on sci-fi franchise in January with Star Wars, the first of three titles launching in 2015.  Taking over the franchise from Dark Horses they are set to waste no time and will release a pair of tie-in books to expand the universe: the ongoing Star Wars: Darth Vader by writer, Kieron Gillen and artist Salvador Larroca in February, and the five-issue miniseries Star Wars: Princess Leia by writer Mark Waid and artist Terry Dodson in March.
Heading up Marvel's first Star Wars comic in years and the first as part of the new canon led by the Lucasfilm Story Group — which is also overseeing the Star Wars Rebels cartoon and J.J. AbramsStar Wars: Episode VII next year, among other projects — is a pretty big deal for Aaron, he says. But that's the kind of stuff that excites him as a creator.
"My desk will be a clutter of Star Wars toys but it's all work related."
The trio of new comics take place just after the Battle of Yavin at the end of the original 1977 Star Wars movie, and Aaron's comic catches up with Han SoloLuke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Chewbacca and droids C-3PO and R2-D2 a couple weeks after the destruction of the Empire's all-powerful Death Star.
