I have a responsibility to make this feel as epic and as notable and as real as anything that I experienced with Star Wars. The stories that meant so much to me, this should mean as much to anybody else.

Since he began writing in a galaxy far, far away with 2015’s Lando miniseries for Marvel Comics, Soule has written some of the most monumental, galaxy-altering, jaw-dropping stories to hit the shelves.

“I think the easiest way to distill the way I approach telling a Star Wars story is to not approach it as fiction,” Charles Soule said in an interview with What the Force. “I approach every opportunity I have to write a Star Wars story I write as part of an overarching history, or mythology. . . I try to make sure everything I write feel like it is part of the history of the Roman Empire, or World War II, or things that actually happened. Because, the way I grew up, Star Wars was real to me, as real as any historical narrative you could name. I have a responsibility to make this feel as epic and as notable and as real as anything that I experienced with Star Wars. The stories that meant so much to me, this should mean as much to anybody else.”

And his stories have done exactly that.


With his first full-length prose Star Wars novel coming with The High Republic: Light of the Jedi, Soule is taking his first step into a larger world—and we couldn’t be more excited! He has cemented his legacy as among the greatest Star Wars writers of all time with his work for Marvel Comics—writing the cataclysmic titles like The Rise of Kylo Ren and Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith. His work brings tremendous gravitas and gut wrenching tragedy in a way that is virtually unparalleled in tie-in fiction.

His understanding of Star Wars as a tragic mythology certainly comes through on the page as he steps out on limbs that make us say “Can he do that?!” time and time again.

Lando: Trade Paperback

Written by
Charles Soule
Artwork by
Alex Maleev
What have we here? From creators Charles Soule and Alex Maleev, Lando is a Marvel miniseries from 2015, set before The Empire Strikes Back. At the time, the only stories centered around Lando were the Neil L Smith books from the 80s, which were certainly some of the weirder SW books. This story is also the best Lobot story you didn’t know you needed. Soule wove together an incredible cast of both new and familiar characters. It’s at its core a heist story, but is also perfectly spooky. It’s got romance. It’s got rogues. It’s got betrayal. It’s got bounty hunters. It’s about smugglers and it’s also about Sith. It’ll surprise you, delight you, and break your heart.

You know him...you love him...now, join him for his biggest caper as master of charm Lando Calrissian gets his very own book! Before he joined the rebellion, before he ran Cloud City, Lando made his way in the galaxy getting by on some swindles, some swagger, and a smile. Lobot at his side, Lando has a plan to steal a very valuable ship...but has he bitten off more than he can chew? Writer Charles Soule (DEATH OF WOLVERINE, INHUMAN, SHE-HULK) and artist Alex Maleev (DAREDEVIL, SPIDER-WOMAN, MOON KNIGHT) bring us the tale of a scoundrel in his natural element--trouble!

Obi-Wan & Anakin: (Trade Paperback)

Written by
Charles Soule
Artwork by
Marco Chechetto
In this Marvel miniseries, we get a glimpse at a mission wherein Obi-Wan Kenobi and his Jedi Padawan, Anakin Skywalker, receive a distress call to a remote snowy planet where two factions wage war for dominance. Written by masterful comics writer Charles Soule, this series provides something quite rare for Star Wars canon publishing–a Jedi team dispatched on a mission to preserve peace for the galaxy. It’s not a part of a larger galactic war, but a more localized story to a lone planet and two Jedi struggling to form a bond after the Force brought them together.

Before their military heroism in the Clone Wars, before their tragic battle on Mustafar, and many decades before their final confrontation on the Death Star, they were Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and his young Padawan, Anakin Skywalker. Now join them a few years into the "chosen one" Anakin's training. Teacher and student have grown closer over time, but it's been a difficult road. And things aren't about to get any easier. In fact, when they are called to a remote planet for assistance, the pair may be pushed to breaking point. As they find themselves stranded on a strange world of primitive technology and deadly natives, will they be able to save themselves? First they must learn who called for help…and why!

From A Certain Point of View

Written by
Various Authors
Artwork by

A truly unique and heroic feat in Star Wars publishing, From a Certain Point of View is a compilation of forty short stories by more than forty incredible authors to retell the story of A New Hope in celebration of its fortieth anniversary. Not only did Del Rey assemble a massive team consisting of their catalog of regular Star Wars writers such as Chuck Wendig, John Jackson Miller, and Claudia Gray, they managed to rope in many award-winning authors to pen their first stories in a galaxy far, far away. Such authors include Ken Liu, Sabaa Tahir, Zoraida Córdova, and Rae Carson. All of the book’s authors donated their pay to First Book, a nonprofit dedicated to improving literacy.

The stories represent the points of view of many of the notable side characters from A New Hope, such as Wedge Antilles, Greedo, and Grand Moff Tarkin. But they don’t stop there. The book benefits from forty years of expanding the Star Wars universe, and as such many characters not originally in the original film provide perspective in creative ways–Lando Calrissian, Yoda, Breha Organa, and even Qui-Gon Jinn! It is a compilation not only of characters and authors, but also styles and tones. At times heartbreaking, hilarious, and head-scratching. Some stories will connect differently with different readers. It certainly has something for everyone and is a remarkable read.

Forty years. Forty stories.

In honor of the fortieth anniversary of Star Wars: A New Hope, this collection features Star Wars stories by bestselling authors, trendsetting artists, and treasured voices from Star Wars literary history. More than forty authors have lent their unique vision to forty "scenes," each retelling a different moment from the original Star Wars film, but with a twist: Every scene is told from the point of view of a background character. Whether it's the X-wing pilots who helped Luke destroy the Death Star or the stormtroopers who never quite could find the droids they were looking for, Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View places the classic movie in a whole new perspective, and celebrates the influence and legacy of the unparalleled cultural phenomenon, Star Wars.

Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith Vol. 1 (Trade Paperback)

Written by
Charles Soule
Artwork by
Giuseppe Camuncoli, Jimmy Cheung
Charles Soule achieved true greatness with his run on Darth Vader. Conceived of as “baby Vader,” Soule sought to pick up the story of the newly armored Dark Lord directly after Revenge of the Sith. He hasn’t been Darth Vader very long; in fact, at the beginning of the story, he’s still more Anakin Skywalker than Sith Lord. This is the story of how Vader finished becoming Vader. The story arcs of Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith tell crucial moments in Vader’s history in original and epically creative ways. The first volume tells of his quest to create his own red-bladed lightsaber, taking advantage of the new canon lore regarding taking a Jedi’s lightsaber and conforming the crystal to his will by “bleeding” the crystal. From there, we find Vader on a mission to find the remaining Jedi on his hit-list who escaped Order 66—including an incredibly compelling clash with none other than the Jedi librarian Jocasta Nu. The final arc is the continuation of Vader’s quest from Episode III to save Padmé from dying, as he looks to open a portal to Rebels’ World between Worlds to bring her back to life. It’s also the story of the origin of Vader’s Castle, introduced in Rogue One. Not to mention the introduction of another Sith, Lord Momin! This series is one you don’t want to miss.

From acclaimed writer Charles Soule comes a brand-new, exhilarating series exploring Darth Vader's early history. Picking up directly where Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith ends, follow Vader as he receives his legendary red lightsaber and witness Vader's rise to power as a Dark Lord of the Sith!

The High Republic: Light of the Jedi

Written by
Charles Soule
Artwork by
Joseph Meehan
Rich with Force Lore. An all-new Star Wars era. Some of the most compelling original EU characters ever written. And the start of a multi-year, multimedia story. Set two hundred years before The Phantom Menace, Light of the Jedi kickstarts the High Republic publishing program with the lauded and legendary comics writer Charles Soule's first prose Star Wars novel. The book follows Jedi Master Avar Kriss, Padawan Bell Zettifar, and a ragtag band of evil space Vikings as they navigate the explosive Great Disaster rocks the galaxy to its core.

The High Republic: Light of the Jedi is a canon novel. It is the first volume and part of the first wave in Phase 1 of the multimedia project Star Wars: The High Republic.

The events of the novel are set 200 years before the events of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace.

Long before the First Order, before the Empire, before even The Phantom Menace. . . Jedi lit the way for the galaxy in The High Republic

It is a golden age. Intrepid hyperspace scouts expand the reach of the Republic to the furthest stars, worlds flourish under the benevolent leadership of the Senate, and peace reigns, enforced by the wisdom and strength of the renowned order of Force users known as the Jedi. With the Jedi at the height of their power, the free citizens of the galaxy are confident in their ability to weather any storm. But even the brightest light can cast a shadow, and some storms defy any preparation.

When a shocking catastrophe in hyperspace tears a ship to pieces, the flurry of shrapnel emerging from the disaster threatens an entire system. No sooner does the call for help go out than the Jedi race to the scene. The scope of the emergence, however, is enough to push even Jedi to their limit. As the sky breaks open and destruction rains down upon the peaceful alliance they helped to build, the Jedi must trust in the Force to see them through a day in which a single mistake could cost billions of lives.

Even as the Jedi battle valiantly against calamity, something truly deadly grows beyond the boundary of the Republic. The hyperspace disaster is far more sinister than the Jedi could ever suspect. A threat hides in the darkness, far from the light of the age, and harbors a secret that could strike fear into even a Jedi's heart.
