Marvel’s Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens Teaser, Aftermath Author Revealed

Shattered EmpireThe cover (by Phil Noto) for Shattered Empire #1 (full series review!), one of Marvel’s contributions to the ‘Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens‘ initiative, has been revealed. It’ll drop in September, which is the expected release month of Star Wars: Aftermath, Del-Rey’s first canon post-Return of the Jedi adult novel. It’ll be authored by Chuck Wendig, his first novel for the saga, who was uncovered by Florian of Jedi-Bibliotehek. The full image of Shattered Empire and Chuck Wendig’s reaction to the gundark being let out of the cage are below.

Shattered Empire #1

Obviously Chuck’s involvement with Aftermath was probably meant to be kept a secret till something like Star Wars Celebration Anaheim and he’s been playing coy about it ever since the news first broke:

Phew, lots of news this week with plenty more to come for sure.
