Marvel has announced a five issue Star Wars event crossover that will run in the pages of Star Wars, Doctor Aphra, and Star Wars: The Screaming Citadel, this May.

“We’re so excited for The Screaming Citadel because it brings a whole new tone and feel to the Star Wars characters we know and love,” says series Editor Jordan D. White. “The titular citadel is our version of the dark and mysterious castle on the hill, and our cast of rebels and rogues are the adventurers who face a stormy night exploring the darkness. Kieron and Jason write these characters so vibrantly, it’s awesome to see them thrown into a new situation like this…get ready for a good one!”

“In writing the issues so far reminds me of how much fun it was writing Star Wars: Vader Down and mixing up the casts together,” says Jason Aaron in an interview with Marvel.com. “And it reminds me how much there still is left on the table. We did that crossover and the whole thing was these two casts fighting against each other, but we really only scratched the surface of what’s out there for stories. It’s been a blast getting back to that.”

Series description:

Rebel pilot and rogue archaeologist wander side-by-side into the darkest corners of the galaxy as Luke Skywalker reluctantly teams with Doctor Aphra! The good Doctor has an offer for this flyboy farm boy – help her, and she’ll provide him with information crucial on his quest to become a Jedi. With an offer he can’t refuse on the table, this unlikely duo finds themselves deep into the heart of the infamous Screaming Citadel! Can Luke find what he’s looking for? Can Aphra be trusted? Or will the Citadel’s Queen and the dark forces lurking within make their journey a one-way trip?!

Kicking off in May’s oversized STAR WARS: THE SCREAMING CITADEL #1 one-shot, the adventure continues later that month in the pages of Star Wars and Star Wars: Doctor Aphra! What secrets lie deep within the citadel’s walls? Find out when STAR WARS: THE SCREAMING CITADEL begins this May!
