Egmont to publish
English-language Star Wars Rebels kids magazine
For several months it has been known that
Panini Comics were planning a German
language Star Wars Rebels kids comic/magazine
with its first issue planned for release next week.
However, it was uncertain whether an English language
version would be produced. Then last month, after 15 years
of publishing a Star Wars kids comic in the UK,
Titan Magazines (who also publish Star Wars
Insider magazine) announced that their UK published
Star Wars Comic title was to
cease publication with no replacement. This lead to some
speculation as to whom may (or may not) publish an English
language version of Panini's comic book
with the front runner being Egmont Books
(who also have the license to publish Star Wars Rebels books
in the UK). Today, in a
Egmont confirmed that they will indeed be
publishing an English language edition. Star Wars
Rebels Magazine #1 from Egmont will
feature the 12-page short comic story Ring
Race by Martin Fisher and art by Bob
Molesworth as well as puzzles, games and other features
and is planned for release on 28th January (one week after
Panini's edition is released).
