Marvel has released their solicitations to comic shops for books arriving in December, the month Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker arrives in theaters, and the long-awaited Rise of Kylo Ren is included.
Written by Charles Soule with art by Will Sliney, the book will detail how Ben Solo became Kylo Ren:
Young Ben Solo is legendary Jedi Luke Skywalker’s most promising pupil. As the son of Rebel Alliance heroes Leia Organa and Han Solo, as well as Luke’s own nephew, Ben has the potential to be a great force for light in the galaxy. But the Skywalker legacy casts a long shadow, the currents of the dark side run deep, and Darth Vader’s blood runs in Ben’s veins. Voices call from both his past and his future, telling him who he must be. He will shatter, he will be reforged, his destiny will be revealed. Snoke awaits. The Knights of Ren await. Ben Solo’s path to his true self begins here.
Also in December, the on-going Star Wars title will come to an end with Empire Ascendant #1, which is a one-shot that wraps up the story of the main Star Wars book that has spent years in the short time between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. The Rebels finally arrive at Hoth in the one-shot.
There are also issues of the Jedi Fallen Order mini-series, Doctor Aphra, and Marvel “True Believers” reprints of some of the old Marvel Star Wars issues to tie-in with the release of The Rise of Skywalker
