Marvel will celebrate the heroic Rebels and the Empire’s villains of the original Star Wars film trilogy in a new series of one-shots that launches in April. The Star Wars: Age of Rebellion one-shots are written by Greg Pak (The Incredible Hulk), with Chris Sprouse (Black Panther) illustrating the heroes’ tales and Marc Laming (Beckett, Star Wars Annual) illustrating the villains’ stories. Terry and Rachel Dodson cover the series.

The series also includes Age of Rebellion Special #1, a one-shot written by Marc Guggenheim (X-Men Gold), Jon Adams (The New Yorker, Love Romances), and Si Spurrier (Doctor Aphra), with art by Adams, Caspar Wijngaard (Doctor Aphra Annual), and Andrea Broccardo (Star Wars). Giuseppe Camuncoli and Guru-eFX cover the issue.

A third series, Age of Resistance, will follow Age of Rebellion and focus on characters in the newest Star Wars trilogy.
