Marvel editor confirms ‘Other Eras’ will be in new Star Wars comics

September 25th, 2014 by Derek Robertson Comments

Looks like it won’t just be the Original Trilogy era that is going to be included in Marvel’s ongoing comic series.

Since re-acquiring the Star Wars license, Marvel announced they were planning on the first of three new Star Wars comic series. However, some fans were left feeling disappointed by the admission that all the stories would be set in the Original Trilogy era. Some fans wanted to see more eras with impassioned cries for more Prequel era love.

Marvel Comics Editor Jordan D. White recently had this to say when he spoke with the Coffee With Kenobi podcast: “As for other eras, yeah, that is one of the great parts about Star Wars, there are so many terrific points in their history we can explore,” White said.

“With these first series, we wanted to stick all in the same era in order to create the sort of inter-connected universe feel we get between Marvel books. But I am certain we’re going to be turning to those other eras in future series. “Heck — I know for a fact we’re working on at least one of those … but we’re not ready to announce it just yet.”

This is great news as there is the implication that as Marvel continues to publish Star Wars comics, they will cover eras including, Originals, Prequels, Dark Times, Sequel Trilogy and Old Republic.

Marvel Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso is doing a panel at New York Comic Con on Sunday at 12:15pm in Room 1A06, which promises to offer more insight on the Star Wars line. So expect to hear more news about release dates and more news about the already announced series and what else to expect in the foreseeable future in the Star Wars comic world.
