The Star Wars comic series is coming to an end. Here’s a look at what the final issues will look like.
Star Wars.com has released the cover art for the final installment of the long series comic series. The long running series will end with issue No. 75, in a one-off story titled Empire Ascendant.
Details have surfaced on what exactly the comics narrative will focus on. The folks gave an outline on how the story of issue No. 1 of this one shot will play out:
"Star Wars: Empire Ascendant #1 finds the Rebel Alliance — Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, and Han Solo among them — building up Echo Base on the ice planet of Hoth while Darth Vader tries to locate the headquarters in vain. In addition to acting as an epilogue to the Star Wars flagship comic run, which followed the continuing adventures of our heroes after the events of Star Wars: A New Hope, the special one-shot will also address the fates of Doctor Aphra and Beilert Valance."
