For nearly five years, Marvel Comics has been publishing Star Wars comic books set in the largely unexplored period between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

Across titles like Star Wars, Star Wars: Darth Vader, Star Wars: Doctor Aphra, and Star Wars: Bounty Hunters, we've experienced the adventures of Luke, Leia, Lando, and more iconic heroes during one of the darkest times for the Rebellion and discovered the trials Darth Vader overcame in a pivotal turning point in his journey through the dark side.

Today, it's been confirmed that this chapter comes to an end in September with two oversized epics: Star Wars #50 and Star Wars: Darth Vader #50. Then, later this year, Marvel Comics will take readers to a different era of the Galaxy, Far, Far Away...which has yet to be revealed. 

The last batch of stories filled in the gaps between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, so surely the next step will be to start exploring what became of these characters after Return of the Jedi

Here's the official description for Star Wars #50:

In Charles Soule and Madibek Musabekov’s Star Wars #50, Jedi Master Luke Skywalker must teach his student Ben Solo a powerful lesson about the true balance between Light and Dark! He offers up a tale from the days of the Rebel Alliance that touches on multiple eras of Star Wars history, and brings this epic run to a thrilling, incredible climax!

As for Star Wars: Darth Vader #50, writer Greg Pak closes out the longest-running Darth Vader comic series ever alongside artist Raffaele Ienco and more...

Pak’s run reaches its stunning conclusion as the Dark Heart of the Sith comes full circle! Darth Vader finally unleashes the unfathomable power he's accumulated through the Schism Imperial against the only person in the galaxy he hates more than he hates himself – Emperor Palpatine! Also featuring the final twists in the saga for key characters like Luke, Leia, Sabé, Ochi, the droid ZED-6-7, Sly Moore, the members of the Schism Imperial and more!

You can check out Leinil Francis Yu's main covers for both issues along with a special connecting cover by Giuseppe Camuncoli below.
