WHAT THIS MEANS

It certainly looks like another exctitng month in the world of Marvel's Star Wars comics. These books continue to add flavor and greater context to the events and characters we know so well from the films. So, for many fans who happen to be stuck at home self-isolating, now might be the perfect time to start reading their old issues to prepare for this new wave.

The main Star Wars comic should prove to be the one to read, as it covers the events between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. It follows Luke, Leia and friends as they grapple with their heavy losses during the events of Empire, as well as mount a rescue mission for thier carbonite-encased friend, Han Solo.
