Some big news for Star Wars comics fans on Monday, as Marvel announced their new epic adventure; Star Wars: Dark Droids. Star Wars storytellers Charles Soule and Luke Ross will lead the way in this new event, with the first issue set for release on 3rd August.
Dark Droids will be a ‘horror-fuelled Star Wars epic’ in which no droid is safe. A new threat simply known as the Scourge is ripping through the galaxy, and it’s attacking everything from droids to cyborgs. And while Rebellion and Empire alike are trying to fix the chaos this brings, a familiar face makes an appearance. But what role does Ajax Sigma play, and whose side is he on?
As well as the main storyline, we’ll be getting a whole load of tie-in comics from some of Star Wars’ biggest titles, including Star Wars, Star Wars: Doctor Aphra, Star Wars: Darth Vader and more. Check out some of the covers now!
