Joss Whedon. That name now carries a certain power, respect and gravitas with it.

Whether Sana Solo will have any presence in Jj Abrams's Star Wars: The Force Awakens remains to be seen as, of course, details of the new film remain as tightly under wraps as ever.

Marvel has also been publishing a Darth Vader ongoing and Princess Leia miniseries. Since the Star Wars Extended Universe comics and books were declared non-canon, the past and future are up for grabs in the rejigged continuity. »
