Mando grape

Some goofy fun: I found a grape that reminded me of the Mandalorian. Posted about it on Twitter. Hundreds of people shared it. And ComicBook.com wrote about it. Now I’m completing the circle by writing about that. Enjoy.

 

Also don’t miss STAR WARS: DARTH VADER #1, in stores February 5.

STAR WARS: DARTH VADER #1 coming this February, written by Greg Pak with art by Raffaela Ienco!

I’m beyond thrilled to reveal the cover and solicit for STAR WARS: DARTH VADER #1, a new series starting in February 2020, written by yours truly with art by Raffaele Ienco and covers by Inhyuk Lee!

It’s been a massive joy to work on this book. We’re tackling what I think is the most compelling and unexplored period of Vader’s life — the moment after EMPIRE STRIKES BACK when he grapples with Luke’s refusal to join him on the Dark Side. We’re getting the chance to dig into some shocking corners of Vader’s past and present — taking this story to some pretty astounding places. And Raffaele’s interiors and Inhyuk Lee’s covers are already blowing my mind.

Please do ask your local retailer to add it to your pull list if you’re interested!

AS FATHER AND SON!”

THE TRAGEDY OF DARTH VADER CONTINUES

In the shattering climax of The Empire Strikes Back, Darth Vader infamously reveals his true relationship to Luke Skywalker and invites his son to rule the galaxy at his side. But Luke refuses — plunging into the abyss beneath Cloud City rather than turn to the Dark Side. We all remember Luke’s utter horror in this life-altering moment. But what about Vader? In this new epic chapter in the Darth Vader saga, the dark lord grapples with Luke’s unthinkable refusal and embarks on a bloody mission of rage-filled revenge against everything and everyone who had a hand in hiding and corrupting his only son. But even as he uncovers the secrets of Luke’s origins, Vader must face shocking new challenges from his own dark past.

Writer Greg Pak and artist Raffaele Ienco unleash Darth Vader on his dark quest of vengeance and discovery this February! With covers by InHyuk Lee!

Agents of Atlas Comics Written by Greg Pak Ronin Island Star Wars

2019.11.13 – STAR WARS #74, RONIN ISLAND #8, and AGENTS OF ATLAS #4 in stores today!

Big day today! I’ve got three books in comic book stores — STAR WARS #74, RONIN ISLAND #8, and AGENTS OF ATLAS #4!

STAR WARS #74, drawn by Phil Noto with letters by Clayton Cowles, is the penultimate chapter in our run. The three different threads of our story come together as our heroes scramble to entrap Vader himself! Featuring the Wookiee/Sith fight you’ve always wanted!

RONIN ISLAND #8 features art by Giannis Milonogiannis, colors by Irma Kniivila, and letters by Simon Bowland. This remains one of my favorite projects I’ve worked on this decade, and the emotional stakes ramp up again in this issue for Hana and Kenichi. In a rave review, Fanbase Press says:

In issue number 8, a character is faced with having to make a difficult choice, and they don’t just continue on unaffected by it; they stop, and the reader is allowed to live in the character’s emotions. It’s a beautiful moment, and one of the reasons I love Ronin Island.

You can read the whole review here.

AGENTS OF ATLAS #4 features art by Nico Leon and Pop Mhan, colors by Rachelle Rosenberg, and letters by Joe Sabino. I love the little character moments that Nico and Pop are rendering so beautifully in this book. Don’t miss Wave and Sword Master finally getting paid and Isaac flirting with Raz! And yes, we’re getting up into major cliffhanger action here — with big ramifications for the upcoming ATLANTIS ATTACKS series!

Ask your local comic shop to hold all these comics for ya! Thanks so much!

2019.09.04 – STAR WARS #71 in stores today!

Been too long since I updated this site! So here we go — thrilled to have STAR WARS #71 hitting comic shops and Comixology today! The book’s written by yours truly with line art and colors by the great Phil Noto and letters by the great Clayton Cowles.

Every moment I’ve spent working on this series has been a dream come true. I grew up with STAR WARS — the first movie hit screens when I was eight and this world and these characters have been under my skin ever since. So it’s a real thrill having the chance to tell an in-continuity story that tells the story of a trio of missions our heroes undertake to keep the Empire off the trail of the rebels’ secret base before the events of EMPIRE STRIKES BACK.

We’ve introduced a number of brand new characters, including the mysterious grifter Warba Calip who’s become an unlikely teacher of Luke Skywalker in the ways of the Force. This issue in particular features a key scene with Warba and Luke that hearkens back to ROGUE ONE in an unexpected way. I’ll say no more — but dontcha dare miss it!

Find your local comic shop!

Buy the book in digital form at Comixology!
