STAR WARS : AGE OF REBELLION (Greg Pak / Chris Sprouse, Marc Laming)

Après Star Wars : Age of Republic de Jody Houser, place à l’Ere de la Rebellion. La formule reste la même : huit one-shots et un numéro spécial composé de trois récits.

Les huit histoires seront signées par Greg Pak (Incredible Hulk). Pour la partie graphique, Chris Sprouse s’occupera des héros (Leia, Luke, Han et Lando) et Marc Laming du côté obscur (le Moff Tarkin, Dark Vador, Boba Fett et Jabba).

Le numéro spécial sera écrit par Marc Guggenheim, Simon Spurrier et Jon Adams et dessiné par Jon Adams, Caspar Wijngaard et Andrea Broccardo.

With HAN SOLO frozen in carbonite in the palace of JABBA THE HUTT, PRINCESS LEIA prepares for a daring rescue by taking on the identity of the bounty hunter BOUSHH. But in order to succeed, she’ll have to prove herself in her new identity to the ruthless bounty hunter BOSSK! With her life and all of her principles on the line, how far will Leia go to rescue a scoundrel? Co-starring CHEWBACCA and LANDO, who almost certainly have a bad feeling about this!

Marvel Preview: Star Wars: Age Of Rebellion Special #1

A ONE-SHOT SPECIAL FEATURING YOUR FAVORITE (AND UNEXPECTED) CHARACTERS FROM THE ORIGINAL STAR WARS TRILOGY!

Move over, Boba Fett. The most dangerous bounty hunter in the galaxy isn’t who you think. The cold, calculating assassin droid IG-88 had a deadly reputation. Wanted criminals should tremble in fear because IG-88 will stop at nothing to get the job done. But where did it come from? What does it want? Perfection might be a good place to start. SI SPURRIER (DOCTOR APHRA) and CASPAR WIJNGAARD (DOCTOR APHRA ANNUAL) bring the terrifying droid to life! The destruction of the Order, the death of his friends, exile – no matter what he has endured, YODA will always be a Jedi. Even in hiding on the isolated planet of Dagobah, far from the evil Empire’s reach, a Jedi’s work is never done. Marc Guggenheim (X-MEN GOLD) and ANDREA BROCCARDO (STAR WARS) will pay the wise, old master a visit! The freedom-fighting REBEL ALLIANCE has more than its fair share of heroes – like ace pilots BIGGS DARKLIGHTER and JEK PORKINS. But they’ve been fighting the evil Galactic Empire for a long time and sometimes, even noble warriors like Biggs and Porkins need a little rest and relaxation. Is anywhere truly free from the trials of the galactic conflict? Writer and illustrator JON ADAMS (the New Yorker, LOVE ROMANCES) has the answer!

Je suppose qu’en VF Panini optera pour un tome pour chacune des ères.
Dommage, j’aurais aimé avoir une histoire dans chaque numéro du nouveau mensuel.

Tori.

La série Dark Vador s’arrête au #25. Je pense qu’on peut avoir des one-shots Age of… dans le mensuel.

Le responsable éditorial de Panini a dit sur un autre forum que les Age of… ne seraient pas dans le kiosque, et on aura surement comme pour les TPB US deux tomes par époque : un “gentils” et un “méchants” :slight_smile:

La vache, je pensais que chaque époque ne constituait qu’un seul TPB… Ça fait six tomes fins là où on aurait pu n’en avoir que trois d’épaisseur moyenne (et différente selon qu’on est côté “bons” ou côté “méchants” : les numéros spéciaux modifient l’équilibre de la Force : Mace Windu pour la République, Yoda pour la Rébellion) !

Tori.

Dommage…peut-être la mini-série Vador alors…

Ouais… Peut-être, en plus elle a l’air plutôt cool !

After helping destroy the DEATH STAR, HAN SOLO’s ready to cash in his reward and return to life as a scoundrel. But when LUKE SKYWALKER asks for one last favor, Han gets pulled into a rebel mission that might wreck all of his plans. Co-starring CHEWBACCA and introducing AKKO, an old friend who might actually out-scoundrel Han himself!
