Marvel's New "Age Of" Series Has It's Line Up Announced

Back during San Diego Comic Con Marvel announced a new series of comics that would cover the three main eras of Star Wars and the main characters there in. Today Marvel rolled out the lineups for each era from the Prequels, Originals and Sequels all being penned by seasoned writers.

Age of Republic by Jody Houser (Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows, Rogue One comic adaptation, Thrawn comic) :

  • Qui-Gon Jinn

  • Darth Maul

  • Obi-Wan Kenobi

  • Jango Fett

  • Anakin Skywalker

  • Padmé Amidala

  • Count Dooku

  • General Grievous

Age of Rebellion by Greg Pak (Planet Hulk, X-Men, Action Comics) :

  • Lando Calrissian

  • Jabba the Hutt

  • Han Solo

  • Boba Fett

  • Luke Skywalker

  • Leia Organa

  • Grand Moff Tarkin

  • Darth Vader

Age of Resistance by Tom Taylor (Batman, All New Wolverine, Star Wars - Blood Ties) :

  • Poe Dameron

  • Supreme Leader Snoke

  • Finn

  • Captain Phasma

  • Rose Tico

  • General Hux

  • Rey

  • Kylo Ren

These stories will do a great deal in the way of satisfying Prequel fans by giving our Clone War era characters some much needed love while also giving us some much needed supplemental material for our sequel characters. The most notable name in the list is Snoke’s seeing as we know very very little about him and this may be the beginning of learning of his origins. Many fans have pointed out that there is one major character who was snubbed by the new line of comics; one Sheev Palpatine. All in all these new stories seem very promising with great potential for new stories.
