EW Get’s A First Look At Star Wars #2

The (first) Death Star has been destroyed. The Empire remains in dogged pursuit of the Rebel Alliance. And the only cause Han Solo still seems to care about is Han Solo.

In this exclusive four-page preview of the second issue (out Feb. 13), we see that Solo and his trusty wookiee Chewbacca are still very much free agents — and a famed nemesis was in pursuit of them well before the events of Empire. Check it out on the following pages, and use your cursor as a magnifier for a closer look!

Work on the Han Solo novel has started!

Author Ty Franck posted an update to his blog stating:

Ground has been broken on the Star Wars novel.  An outline has been approved, and chapters are being typed.  Things I’ve learned so far:  It is important to know ahead of time how you will handle Chewie talking, the Star Wars universe has instantaneous communication and nearly instantaneous travel but space is STILL big enough to hide things, hyperspace is how you get away from badguys but jumping through hyperspace ain’t like dusting crops kid, and Leia is the brains of the operation.  If someone has a good idea, it’s Leia.  Han is always always always wrong when he makes a plan or predicts the future, but man does he improvise gracefully.  More robots.  Always more robots.
