Late last year it was announced that Dark Horse Comics will be venturing back to the galaxy far, far away, having secured the license from Lucasfilm for new all-ages Star Wars comic books and graphic novels, and now comes word of the first offering from the new deal, Star Wars: Hyperspace Stories.
Featuring fan-favourite heroes and villains across every era of Star Wars, the twelve-issue anthology series will kick off in August with a story from writer Amanda Deibert (Wonder Woman ’77, Teen Titans Go!) and artist Lucas Marangon (R.I.P.D., Star Wars Tales) which takes us back to the height of the Clone Wars. Here’s the solicitation:
When the members of a Republic mission led by Senator Padmé Amidala are abducted by the ruthless Separatist General Grievous, Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi jump to the rescue. But the operation quickly goes awry, and the Jedi find themselves cut off and surrounded by an army of battle droids!
Star Wars: Hyperspace Stories #1 will go on sale on August 10th.
