The Galaxy’s Most Notorious Smuggler Goes Undercover In Liu And Brooks’ ‘Han Solo’ #1
Marvel's Star Wars comics have been going from strength to strength, and the rotating series of miniseries starring the likes of Princess Leia, Lando Calrissian, and Obi-Wan and Anakin have provided creators room to tell a rich variety of stories spotlighting fan-favorite characters.
This trend is set to continue next month as everyone's favorite galactic scoundrel and his trusty Wookiee co-pilot star in a brand new miniseries from Marjorie Liu, Mark Brooks and Sonia Oback. Star Wars: Han Solo looks to be packed with all the swashbuckling derring-do and high-octane space races you've come to expect from Han Solo, and Marvel has provided us with an unlettered preview of the first issue.
The new miniseries features Han and Chewie entering The Millennium Falcon into the infamous Dragon Void Run, a race that Han has always dreamed of winning. Except this time winning isn't the prize, as they're undercover for the Rebellion on orders from Princess Leia. That is, if Han can stop thinking about winning the race for two seconds and complete their objective.
Check out the preview below:
