Three new Star Wars titles out this week with a celebratory Star Wars #25 amongst them, commemorating this twenty-fifth issue with four different stories covering the classic trilogy, the prequels and the sequels. Check the preview out below along with looks at Star Wars: Darth Vader #25 and Star Wars: Han Solo & Chewbacca #4 too:

Star Wars: Darth Vader #25

Written by: Greg Pak
Art by: Raffaele Ienco, Carlos Lopez

“The Dark Lord of the Sith relentlessly tracks a corrupt Imperial governor. But is Vader still driven by his quest for order—or has his encounters with shades from the past awoken new motivations? Meanwhile, few figures in the galaxy are more different than Sabé, handmaiden of Padmé Amidala, and Ochi of Bestoon, assassin of the Sith. So when they’re forced to work together in Vader’s ambit and the knives inevitably come out, who’s still standing at the end? And what will that lonely soul have to say when Vader returns?”
