The Last Jedi – Marvel Comic Series

The Resistance is outnumbered…Luke Skywalker has finally been found…and the Rebels fight against a growing evil. The First Order will stop at nothing to conquer the galaxy, and it’s up to our heroes to defend it! So this spring Marvel will take the story of Star Wars: The Last Jedi to a whole new dimension, just as it did with Rogue One, Marvel will be publishing a six-issue comic adaptation, to be written by Gary Whitta (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Star Wars Rebels) with art from Michael Walsh and Mike Spicer(Star Wars Annual, Hawkeye, The Vision). And rest assured, this sacred Jedi text will be a page-turner.

The six issues will retell the story of Rian Johnson’s film, but Marvel is also promising that the series will contain “never-before-seen” material. Perhaps, like the upcoming novelization of The Last Jedi, the comic adaptation will contain scenes of Han Solo’s funeral and further elaborate the relationship between Resistance sisters Paige and Rose Tico. Or perhaps it’ll be something else entirely. Mike del Mundo’s cover for the first issue certainly paints porgs in a whole new light.
