Don’t get excited, as the old scoundrel would say, but Marvel Comics has announced a new comic series starring none other than Han Solo. You know, the guy who made the Kessel Run in under 12 parsecs? (Some say 14.)
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?!
Beyond the splash page, word has just come out of Disney that 2018’s planned big-screen, Solo-centric “Star Wars Anthology” story will include the mighty Chewbacca and serve as an “origin story,” presumably telling how the smuggler and the Wookiee met.
