Star Wars has returned to Marvel Comics. To celebrate a long history of stories and epic adventures Marvel Comics will release STAR WARS LEGENDS EPIC COLLECTION: THE EMPIRE VOL. 1 TPB. in April of 2015. It will be a great chance to visit the dark times of the Star Wars universe when the Empire ruled. Check out the stories that will be included with the first trade paper back. 

Press Release: Marvel is excited to announce the release of an oversized dose of a galaxy far, far, away – Star Wars comics are coming to Marvel’s prestigious Epic Collection format - STAR WARS LEGENDS EPIC COLLECTION: THE EMPIRE VOL. 1 TPB.

 

Let the dark times begin! Marvel welcomes Star Wars to the Epic Collection program, with this first volume of a series focusing on the years that follow Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith! After the end of the Clone Wars, the Republic has fallen and Palpatine exerts his ruthless grip on his new Galactic Empire. Now, the few Jedi that remain must decide whether to hold true to their faith, or abandon it completely in the face of a brutal purge — one carried out by the new Dark Lord of the Sith. Rise, Darth Vader!
 
“We’re thrilled to be bringing our innovative Epic Collections to a galaxy far, far away,” says Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel. “We’ll be bouncing around to different periods of Star Wars history with each Epic Collection, constructing one huge tapestry, collecting full unbroken runs of all the greatest Star Wars comics from the past 35 years.”
 
STAR WARS LEGENDS EPIC COLLECTION: THE EMPIRE VOL. 1 TPB. will offer a new way for fans to collect and read iconic Star Wars stories across the past 35 years of published titles. These oversized, self-contained color collections will bring the adventures of the Rebellion, the Galactic Empire and more to the masses with exciting new Epic Collections.
 
COLLECTING: STAR WARS: REPUBLIC 78-80, STAR WARS: PURGE 1, STAR WARS: PURGE — SECONDS TO DIE 1, STAR WARS: PURGE — THE HIDDEN BLADE 1, STAR WARS: PURGE — THE TYRANT'S FIST 1-2, STAR WARS: DARTH VADER AND THE LOST COMMAND 1-5, STAR WARS: DARK TIMES 1-5

I wonder if Marvel will reprint Classic Star Wars which was reprinted by Dark Horse which were reprints of Marvel's stuff?

The expanded universe is being rebooted. I put in ideas for Marvel for picking up from Revenge of the Sith like many jedi killed by Darth Vader and imperial officers with storm troopers to be telling the truth to Luke Skywalker about jedi extinction. Maybe Eeth Koth killed by Tarkin. Koffi Arrana and Shadday Potkin both killed by Darth Vader in both new canon and legends.
