Marvel's Star Wars titles have provided a lot of hits for the publisher, and later this year Kieron Gillen and Jason Aaron will team up for their second Star Wars crossover in a five-part story that plunges the casts of Star Wars and Doctor Aphra into a Gothic horror adventure appropriately titled Screaming Citadel.
