The Journey to 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Begins in Marvel Comics


StarWars.com has debuted this cover image announcing Shattered Empire, a Marvel Comics event that's part of Disney's "Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens" program. The series begins in September, and evidently begins where Return of the Jedi left off.

It's here that we'll see Disney's new, unified canon truly begin to diverge sharply from the former Expanded Universe. What do you think we'll see in this series? Will this be required reading before the new film hits theaters on Dec. 18? Is Marvel hitting a saturation point with its multiple Star Wars titles? Regardless, expect more tie-in novels, comics and other media as the "Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens" continues this fall.
