Marvel’s ‘Star Wars’ Series Comes To An End In November

Marvel got the Star Wars license back from Dark Horse in 2015. Back then, there were three titles (one a mini) for audiences, including a general “Star Wars” title. That Star Wars title was the longest running of the titles, but will be coming to an end in November, a month before the final chapter in the Skywalker Saga hits movie theaters (coincidence?). The series just took a new direction in July with a new writer and artist. Well, that’s Marvel.

In Marvel’s November solicitations, two issues of Star Wars are due: #74 and #75. In the solicitation for #75 the text reads: “FINAL ISSUE! IT’S A TRAP!” That sounds pretty final.  Website io9 reached out to Marvel just to make sure and:

“… a spokesperson for the publisher confirmed that Star Wars #75 is indeed the final issue of the series and that fans can expect to learn more about the future of the title next month.”

So there will probably be a new Star Wars series in the future.

There are still Star Wars comics being published by Marvel, including a couple of tie-ins with The Rise of Skywalker, some specials, and as far as we know, the uncancelled Doctor Aphra series. No word on if IDW‘s Star Wars Adventures comics will be affected. The original Star Wars series from Marvel (1977) ran for 107 issues.

Here are the two issues of Star Wars solicited for November:
