Dark Horse Comics have released their solicitations for March 2014. Here is the Star Wars rundown. One thing that caught my interest is the new art team on Star Wars #15. Stéphane Créty and Julien Hugonnard-Bert both worked on Agent of the Empire: Iron Eclipse, which included a cameo by Han Solo. It’ll be interesting to see how their art style will look for the other classic characters.
