There’s a torrent of publishing news cascading in from SDCC 2018 and the Lucasfilm publishing panel and that includes this from IDW, the five issue Star Wars: Tales from Vader’s Castle, written by Cavan Scott and drawn by Derek Charm.
At today’s Star Wars publishing panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Lucasfilm announced Star Wars: Tales from Vader’s Castle, a five-issue comic book miniseries coming from IDW Publishing, with new issues released every Wednesday throughout October. Written by Cavan Scott and illustrated by Derek Charm, the series will feature fan-favorite characters spanning the Star Wars saga, including Star Wars Rebels‘ Hera, Kanan, and Chopper; Obi-Wan Kenobi and Count Dooku; Han Solo and Chewbacca; and, amazingly, even Ewoks.
Eisner Award-winning artist Francesco Francavilla is providing atmospheric variant covers for each installment, and an all-star lineup of creators (Kelley Jones, Chris Fenoglio, Corin Howell, Robert Hack, and Charles Paul Wilson III) will bring their distinct styles to additional terrifying tales each week.
It looks like scary fun for all ages, and the perfect way to add the power of the Force to Halloween. StarWars.com has a first look at the series’ covers, and caught up with Scott and Charm to discuss Tales from Vader’s Castle and making Star Wars spooky.
