Not only is that the month when the publisher will release the first in a series of hardcover collections featuring Marvel’s original Star Wars comics, published concurrently with the original trilogy, but it’s also the month which launches a new line ofStar Wars comic books, created by high-profile creators including Jason Aaron,Kieron Gillen and John Cassaday.

The announcement was made at Marvel’s “Cup o’ Joe” panel at San Diego Comic-Con Saturday afternoon and followed the January announcement that Marvel had been awarded the comic-book license for the Disney property, as well as the news earlier this month of a series of hardcover collections of Marvel’s earlier Star Wars material.

The three series announced were Star Wars by Aaron and Cassaday, Star Wars: Darth Vader by Gillen andSalvador Larocca, and Star Wars: Princess Leia byMark Waid and Terry Dodson. All three series will take place in a timeframe immediately following the end of the original Star Wars movie, with Star Wars and Darth Vader being ongoing series and Princess Leia being a five-issue miniseries.

Roll-outs of the series will begin with Star Wars in January 2015, with a new series launching each month subsequently until March.
