In a rare exception to recent publication trends, Marvel’s original Legends comics run received one final issue decades after its original run ended. Not only that, but issue 108 is in fact a sequel to issue 50, not 107! Gotta love Star Wars, right? The victory lap of an issue continues the story of the bounty hunter, Valance, who finally faces off against Darth Vader and prepares the soil for his reintroduction into Canon.
Star Wars 108: Forever Crimson is a special one-hundred eighth issue of the Legends comic book series Star Wars, published in celebration of Marvel Comics' eightieth anniversary. It was written by Matthew Rosenberg, illustrated by several artists, and published by Marvel on May 29, 2019. The issue is set after the formation of the New Republic, and it serves as a sequel to Archie Goodwin's Star Wars 50: The Crimson Forever.
THE ALL-NEW NEXT ISSUE TO THE ORIGINAL MARVEL STAR WARS SERIES! A long time ago on a spinner rack far, far away-STAR WARS comics were a LOT different than they are now!
