Marvel Force Awakens Comic Issue 1

Marvel Unveils ‘The Force Awakens’ Comic Art

You’ve seen the movie, now read the comic book. Marvel has just revealed the initial cover and variants for its upcoming adaptation of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The first installment in the five-issue series, written by Chuck Wendig (author of Star Wars: Aftermath) and illustrated by Luke Ross, will arrive in stores and digital services on June 22.

The comic art and variants put a new, graphical spin on the familiar movie images.

Marvel has done a cranking job on the various Star Wars titles (most of which I now own) since re-acquiring the license from Disney cohort Lucasfilm. In addition to The Force Awakens, the publisher will roll out the limited-edition Han Solo series next month.
