Marvel has confirmed that Han Solo is the latest character from the Star Wars universe to get his own spinoff comic book series.

A big starship race that Solo has wanted to take part in all his life, and when finally gets a chance to participate in that dream event, Princess Leia calls on him to proceed on a mission to find out if there are any moles in the Rebellion.
You can’t talk about Solo without mentioning Chewbacca, they’re thick as thieves after all, and fans will be delighted to find out that Chewbacca is going to be featured in this comic book series as well. The series will run for five issues and the first issue will arrive this June.
