Star Wars comics post "Return of the Jedi"

Source: The New Galaxy of Star Wars: Shattered Empire: An Interview with Greg Rucka

A part of the Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens publishing line, the first canon comic in the post Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi era is Star Wars: Shattered Empire. This title was announced back in March, and subsequently was revealed to have Greg Rucka as its writer with Marco Checchetto on art.

The details of the story have been light, previously described:

The second Death Star has been destroyed. The Emperor is dead. The galaxy celebrates. What happens next? Written by Greg Rucka and illustrated by Marco Checchetto, Shattered Empire will help tell the story of what happened following the collapse of the Empire.


Rucka provided a little bit of extra information. It seems like the series is four issues (previously listed as 5) and will star new Rebel characters Shara Bey and her husband Kes. Both are veterans in the Rebellion, Shara a pilot and Kes a foot soldier. They spent a lot of time apart during the battles against the Empire, but even though the Emperor was no longer, the forces of the Empire were not.

Though the main characters and focus will be on Shara and Kes, Rucka promised that we'd see a glimpse of other, more familiar characters (we're talking, Luke, Han, Leia, Chewie, and Lando). Rucka describes the story's structure:

We see what they [Luke and the gang] are doing, and while the stories are not about them — they’re about Shara Bey — the stories link. Issue 1 sort of stands alone. Issues 2 and 3 follow the same story path; they’re like a two-parter, and they lead into the fourth. As it stands, we meet Shara in [issue] 1 during the Battle of Endor, and we come out of the Battle of Endor, and then we cover about three to six months total in the series following the Battle of Endor.
