Marvel will be producing a new comic mini-series set in the days after the fall of the Empire, post Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi. The series will follow the elite T.I.E. fighter pilots of Shadow Wing squadron, who protect Imperial interests from the traitorous Rebels.

Star Wars: Tie Fighter (no, sadly not the game) will be written by Jody Houser and art by Rogê Antônio. The cover for issue #1 will be produced by Giuseppe Camuncoli and Elia Bonetti. The miniseries is set to launch in April.
The comic will be set in the same time period and will crossover with the previously announced novel Alphabet Squadron by Alexander Freed. The Imps will no doubt butt heads with the pilots of the different-lettered ships. Alphanbet Squadron, now the first in a trilogy of novels, should be out in July.
