Lucasfilm Ltd. and Marvel Entertainment are extremely proud to announce the iconic Star Wars franchise will return to Marvel in 2015 with a line-up of three comic book titles chronicling the adventures of a galaxy far, far away. Beginning in January 2015, prepare for STAR WARS by writer Jason Aaron (Thor, Original Sin), artist John Cassaday (Astonishing X-Men) and colorist Laura Martin, DARTH VADER by writer Kieron Gillen and artist Salvador Larroca and PRINCESS LEIA by writer Mark Waid and artist Terry Dodson.
That's Maul, Folks! According to Newsarama, the arc focusing on Darth Maul's final showdown with Darth Sidious may be seeing release on paper before the animation - assuming it gets/got finished - shows up. Numerous unaired episodes of The Clone Wars are supposedly awaiting some sort of release, but while we wait Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir will give us another look at Mother Talzin, Maul, and whatever the heck is next on deck for that insanely fun storyline that started in seasons 4 and 5.
