Marvel Start Work on Republishing the Jedi with Star Wars Omnibus in 2015

Marvel have announced their first Star Wars collection of material since they reclaimed the Star Wars license from Dark Horse, and will be starting right at the beginning of their original run with the franchise.



Kicking off ‘Star Wars: The Original Marvel Years’ in January next year, this first collection will see work from writers Roy Thomas, Howard Chaykin, Archie Goodwin, Jo Duffy and Chris Claremont; and artists Howard Chaykin, Carmine Infantino, Walter Simonson, Herb Trimpe, Michael Golden, Al Williamson and Mike Vosburg. That means they’ll be collecting issues #1 – #44 of the original 1977 run, as well as Annual #1.

The rebels face a wealth of new perils, from space pirate Crimson Jack to the bounty hunter Beilert Valance, as well as a surprisingly svelte Jabba the Hut (one “t”). Luke goes back to Tatooine, Leia battles alone, Han and Chewie play the deadly Big Game, and Darth Vader hunts for answers! Revisit all your old favorites and discover some new ones!

Says the press release on This also marks the first time we’ve been able to talk about Star Wars and trades without having to talk about the trade federation’s embargo of Naboo, so that’s a plus.
