Marvel To Make Canon Star Wars Prequel-Era ComicsSeptember 28th, 2014
This is a good news, bad news story. The good news is that we are getting some extra Star Wars comics. The bad news (to those of us who don’t like the prequels) is that these comics will take place in what future historians will commonly refer to as the Jar-Jar era.
Marvel plans to use the Prequel era for their new comics, which now exist in canon. Marvel revealed the news to the Coffee with Kenobi podcast:
“As for other eras, yeah, that is one of the great parts about Star Wars, there are so many terrific points in their history we can explore,” White said.
“With these first series, we wanted to stick all in the same era in order to create the sort of inter-connected universe feel we get between Marvel books,” he said. “But I am certain we’re going to be turning to those other eras in future series… Heck — I know for a fact we’re working on at least one of those … but we’re not ready to announce it just yet.”
