Star Wars Marvel Comics Return!

Although today's San Diego Comic-Con announcement was expected it was still fantastic to finally hear!  Starting in January, Marvel Comics will once again publish new Star Wars comic books starting with Star Wars #1.  The on-going series takes place right after A New Hope, much like Dark Horse's current and final series of the same name does.
