Entertainment Weekly had a exclusive interview with comic book writer Marjorie Liu in which he revealed a new Han Solo Comic will be releasing in June 2016. It will be a five issue mini series set between a New Hope and Empire Strikes back.
The story involves a starship race known as the Dragon Void Run. “Han’s been dreaming of entering this thing for his entire life,” Liu says. “He finally gets the chance, except there’s a catch: Leia thinks there are spies in the Rebellion, and she doesn’t dare send anyone else to retrieve these vital informants who are on various planets in the system.”
As Han and Chewie start sheltering these Rebel contacts aboard the Millennium Falcon, the Corellian pilot fights the pull of his own ego’s tractor beam: If he ditches the mission, maybe he can actually win this thing.
There is a entire interview which is worth checking out as well as some sample art.
