The popular “Star Wars” series, an ongoing title under Marvel Comics, is reportedly coming to an end. However, there are reasons why it may not be surprising, given the timing. It may not even be the actual end of the comic book series.

The solicitations for Marvel’s November comics were released today, including the month’s release of “Star Wars” issues no. 74 and no. 75. Clayton Cowles, Greg Pak, and Phil Noto are the team behind the series. However, this solicitation also announced that no. 75 isn’t simply the end of the current story arc, “Rebels and Rogues.” It showed that issue no. 75 is the “Final Issue” of the series.

IO9 confirmed through Marvel’s spokesperson that the issue is indeed the final printing for the series. Fans of the comic book can learn more about what comes next for the title in the coming months. Marvel is still working on other Star Wars titles, namely “Doctor Aphra,” “Age of Republic/Rebellion/Resistance,” and even tie-in comic books for “The Rise of Skywalker” and “Jedi: Fallen Order.”

The question needing answers here is whether Marvel Comics is ending the “Star Wars” comic book run because of “The Rise of Skywalker”? It is a wise tactic, given how the movie is going to be shown in just a few months. Another idea to explore is how the publisher is fond of ending a series run, only to return with a new no. 1 issue to capitalize on sales. It is only strange, considering the “Star Wars” series’ popularity with its fanbase.

A recent title that experienced the exact same treatment is the “Darth Vader” series. The first volume created by Salvador Larroca and Kieron Gillen was eventually replaced by another first, this time created by Charles Soule and Giuseppe Camuncoli. The “Darth Vader” title was launched in 2015, shortly after “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

More answers can be found, perhaps, in the D23 Expo happening this year. The last D23 Expo, according to, highlighted “Star Wars” attractions in the Disney theme parks as well as choice cuts from the then-premiering “Avengers: Infinity War.”

This year’s D23 Expo promises insights into different projects like Marvel and other Disney film properties, including the “Star Wars” franchise. It might also be the best place for fans of the Marvel “Star Wars” series to know whether a reboot is in place.
