Greg Pak’s the new STAR WARS comic book writer – and here’s a Marvel interview with Jim Beard

A couple of weekends ago at Star Wars Celebration, Marvel announced that I’ll be the new writer for the ongoing STAR WARS comic book starting with issue #68 in July and illustrated by the great Phil Noto — check out the cover above!

In the meantime, you can continue reading my STAR WARS one-shot stories as part of the STAR WARS AGE OF REBELLION miniseries. So far, the Leia, Tarkin, and Han books are out in the wild. Next Wednesday, you’ll be able to pick up STAR WARS AGE OF REBELLION: BOBA FETT #1, with gorgeous art from Marc Laming and colors by Neeraj Menon.

Aaaand now you can read an interview at Marvel.com by Jim Beard in which I talk about all these books and more! Please do check it out! Here’s an excerpt:

Marvel.com: Greg, basic question, but an oh-so important one: What’s your favorite of the ten Star Wars feature films and why?

Greg Pak: I was eight when A New Hope came out—although we just called it Star Wars back then—and eleven when The Empire Strikes Back hit. So as much as I love the new movies, and I love, love, love ’em, that first trilogy will probably always be my sentimental fave.

The Empire Strikes Back is probably at the top of my list, in part because of how mind blowing it was to see after waiting three years as a kid for the next chapter, and how shocked we were by the big choices and character moments throughout. It’s such a classic now that it’s a little hard to express how hugely risk-taking it felt at the time and how much it opened up and made possible that Star Wars mythology we almost take for granted now. And I just love so many of the acting beats in that second movie. All of Mark Hamill’s moments with Yoda in those early scenes on Dagobah are just phenomenally good—so real and so endearing and so critical for making the fantastical scenario work on a human level.

2019.04.10 – TARKIN #1, LEIA #1, and RONIN ISLAND #2 in stores today!

I’m thrilled to have three big books in comic shops today!

If you’re a Star Wars fan, please don’t miss STAR WARS AGE OF REBELLION: GRAND MOFF TARKIN #1 and STAR WARS AGE OF REBELLION: LEIA #1. Both are one shots that tell in-continuity stories about those lead characters, shedding new light on classic turning points in the movies.

LEIA #1 was beautifully drawn by Chris Sprouse, Karl Story, Will Sliney, and Marc Deering, with vibrant colors by Tamra Bonvillain and letters by Travis Lanham, and cover by Terry and Rachel Dodson. Here’s an excerpt from the 5/5 ComicBook.com review:

…this book offers a thrilling adventure that feels fully in line with the Leia we’ve come to know and love, all while filling in a missing chapter in the character’s journey to rescue Han.

TARKIN was drawn by Marc Laming with colors by Jordan Boyd and Neeraj Menon with letters by Travis Lanham and a cover by Terry and Rachel Dodson. Here’s an excerpt from the 5/5 ComicBook.com review:

This book is a must-read for fans of Tarkin or the original movie in general, delivering an all-new perspective of a beloved character who you’ll never look at the same again.

Ronin Island #2 cover

And don’t miss RONIN ISLAND #2, with art by Giannis Milonogiannis, colors by Irma Kniivila, and letters by Simon Bowland. RONIN ISLAND was recently upgraded from a five issue miniseries to a full twelve issues due to the incredible support of readers and retailers — come see what the fuss is all about! Here’s a blurb from the five star Comics Bulletin review:

Ronin Island #2 is the rare, perfect situation where a great writer finds the right art team to breathe life into his script. It was clear that Pak, Milogiannis, and Kniivila had a vision after the first issue, but upon finishing up this installment it’s evident that they’re creating something truly special. Now extended to a 12-issue maxiseries, Ronin Island is a true, all-ages adventure with elements of action, horror, and heart that should not be missed.

Ask your local retailer to hold copies of these books for you today!
