Marvel Launching New Classified ‘Star Wars’ Comic

Marvel will be launching a new Star Wars comic this December, a mysterious ongoing series being solicited as Star Wars: Classified.

Kieron Gillen will write the series, fresh off his 25 issue run on Darth Vader, while Kev Walker is on art. Walker’s only experience in the galaxy far, far away was a cover he did for Star Wars: Republic in 2003.

You can see Marvel’s solicitation for the first two issues below:


Star Wars Classified

Marvel has not revealed any plot details, or if Classified will be the series’ official title (it’s likely a placeholder). New York Comic Con is only a few weeks away, so it’s possible that fans can expect to get answers then.

One of the biggest mysteries surrounding the series is when it will take place in the timeline. Will it be set pre-A New Hope in order to line up with Rogue One, also coming out in December? Or will it continue to fill in the 30 year gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens?

What do you hope Classified will be about? Let us know in the comments below!
