Star Wars: Shattered Empire is an upcoming Marvel comic series that canonically bridges the 30 year gap between Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi and Star Wars: The Force Awakens . A mysterious new female character has been introduced on the ‘Shattered Empire’ issue #2 cover. In Marvel’s Star Wars: Shattered Empire by Greg Rucka and Marco Checchetto, The First Order is still decades away, and it’s safe to assume Luke, Han, and Leia have a lot on their plate after overthrowing the governing force that controlled the galaxy.
- About the cover, the official Star Wars website had this to say.
- While everything revealed in these various comic books, novels, sticker books and other releases will somehow tie into the upcoming movies and spinoffs, that doesn’t mean this mysterious character will be featured in the movie, or even referenced.
- There’s someone new in the galaxy, and we have a first look at this emerging presence.
