It was announced today that the novelization of “Solo: A Star Wars Story” will be coming out, but wont be released until later this year on September 4th, and will be written by Mur Lafferty.
Also announced that I somehow missed last week is a one-shot comic titled Beckett, which is obviously about Han Solo’s outlaw mentor Tobias Beckett, but will also be about how he and Enfys Nest began the feud we saw between them in the movie. The comic will be written by Gerry Duggan, with art from Will Sliney, Edgar Salazar, and Marc Laming, and will be released in August.
You can check out the official descriptions for both the novel and Beckett comic below from StarWars.com:
