Well, rumors were flying that Marvel would be issuing Marvel Star Wars issue 108, picking up where the EU series left out in 1986. Now it's official, 108 is coming, but as a one-shot. What's still unclear is whether it will be entirely in the Legends canon or part of the new canon.
From the publisher blurb:
"A long time ago on a spinner rack far, far away…Star Wars comics were a LOT different than they are now! With wild and intricately plotted storylines, Marvel’s historic original run introduced an array of unique heroes and villains to play alongside George Lucas' incredibly popular science-fantasy characters. In celebration of Marvel's 80th Anniversary, this Legends-era sequel to legendary comic book writer Archie Goodwin’s 'Crimson Forever' reunites Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, C-3PO, and R2-D2 with Jaxxon, Amaiza Foxtrain, Domina Tagge, and Valance the Hunter in a galaxy-threatening, nostalgic roller coaster! Strap yourselves in!"
You can pick it up May 29th.
