Announced at this year's New York Comic Con were the titles for the two books that will complete Chuck Wendig's Aftermath trilogy: Life Debt (expected Summer 2016) and Empire's End (2017); as well as a new novel set six years prior to The Force Awakens from Claudia Grey, author of the well-recieved Journey to The Force Awakens: Lost Stars, is New Republic: Bloodline (Spring 2016).

It will be first published in e-book form in December with a paperback release with two additional stories in 2016.

Now, called to a remote planet for assistance, Master and Padawan may be pushed to the breaking point. Writer Charles Soule (Lando, She-Hulk, Daredevil) and artist Marco Checchetto (Star Wars: Shattered Empire, Avengers World, Punisher) bring us a tale of the Jedi at the height of their power…
