A new special series of comics was revealed during the Star Wars publishing panel at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC). IDW will be putting out some spooky issues of their Star Wars Adventures  line, titled Star Wars Adventures: Tales From Vader's Castle. The 5-issue series will run weekly during the month of October and will be anthology style, written by Cavan Scott and illustrated by Derek Charm.

Here's a little of what you can expect from the series:

… the series will feature fan-favorite characters spanning the Star Wars saga, including Star Wars Rebels' Hera, Kanan, and Chopper; Obi-Wan Kenobi and Count Dooku; Han Solo and Chewbacca; and, amazingly, even Ewoks. Eisner Award-winning artist Francesco Francavilla is providing atmospheric variant covers for each installment, and an all-star lineup of creators (Kelley Jones, Chris Fenoglio, Corin Howell, Robert Hack, and Charles Paul Wilson III) will bring their distinct styles to additional terrifying tales each week. It looks like scary fun for all ages, and the perfect way to add the power of the Force to Halloween.

 

Scott describes the framing device for the different stories:

"The series is a series of spooky stories within a story. A rebel ship crash lands on Mustafar not far from Vader's fortress. As the crew survives monsters, stormtroopers, and worse, they tell each other stories to help raise their spirits. At least, that's the general idea, although some of the rebels are of a more nervous disposition than the others.

The team is led by Commander Lina Graf, who fans of the Adventures of Wild Space series of junior novels will recognize. Now a full member of the Rebel Alliance, Lina has to try and get her people off the nightmarish planet, before the horror stories they've been sharing become frighteningly real."
