Star Wars | Highlights from the Lucasfilm Publishing Panel at SDCC

The Rise of Kylo Ren headlines a stellar collection of new literature in the run-up to The Rise of Skywalker

We have exciting news from Star

This past weekend the biggest names in literature descended upon San Diego Comic-Con to showcase their upcoming slate of fantastic material destined to hit our shelves in the coming year; and leading the charge, as ever was Lucasfilm.

Lucasfilm’s creative director of publishing, Michael Siglain, led an all-star panel of Star Wars authors at San Diego Comic-Con, including: Lou Anders (Pirate’s Price), Katie Cook (Creatures Big & Small), Zoraida Córdova (A Crash of Fate), Delilah Dawson (Black Spire), E. K. Johnston (Queen’s Shadow), George Mann (Myths & Fables), Brian Rood (The Skywalker Saga), Cavan Scott (Dooku: Jedi Lost), Kevin Shinick (Force Collector), Charles Soule (Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith), Timothy Zahn (Thrawn: Treason), and Rebecca Roanhorse (Resistance Reborn).

They discussed their love of Star Wars, upcoming books and comics, and revealed some exciting new projects which are set to hit the shelves in the lead up to the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Here is a selection of the highlights, along with the first look at new covers and art.

Marvel’s The Rise of Kylo Ren is coming in December. Charles Soule announced the four-issue miniseries:


Return to Vader’s Castle, another collection of spooky stories coming for Halloween season will focus on the bad guys. Stories will centre around Darth Maul, Asajj Ventress, Jabba the Hutt, Darth Vader, and Grand Moff Tarkin. In the original Tales from Vader’s Castle series, writer Cavan Scott turned Christopher Lee’s Count Dooku into a vampire; now, he’s turning Tarkin — or Peter Cushing, another horror icon alongside Christopher Lee — into a classic archetype.
