Marvel really are hitting it out of the park.

No matter which way you look at it, it's a great time to be a Star Wars fan right now. We've got a whole new trilogy nearing completion, Trevorrow is off Episode IX, games aplenty are moving ahead, and the comics themselves continue to impress.

Nothing against Dark Horse - their Old Republic stuff was great fun - but Marvel never ceases to impress with the license now firmly in their control. Since taking the reigns on the expanded universe in 2015, the House of Mouse have poured all their efforts into building an engaging and convincing mythos for Star Wars trilogies old and new.

It's worked, and while some fans are reluctant to partake in the Marvel-themed festivities - having grown particularly attached to the old canon - it's their loss. Charles Soule, Mark Waid and Kieron Gillen in particular are all building something special at Marvel's House of Ideas, and with The Last Jedi fast approaching, there's no time like the present to start acquainting yourself with the very best in Star Wars literature.

Marvel have made a massive effort to bring their best and brightest to build this new expanded universe, and with comics spanning eras old and new, there's guaranteed to be something that'll catch your eye - comics fan or not.
