I’m surprised this adaptation didn’t arrive sooner, but Marvel will release the official Star Wars: The Force Awakens Adaptation #1 in June. The publisher has announced John Cassaday, Phil Not, and Esad Ribic will all provide covers to the mini-series.

From creators Chuck Wendig (Star Wars: Aftermath) and Luke Ross (Hercules) – it’s been decades since the Rebel Alliance destroyed toppled the Galactic Empire. But now, on the remote planet of Jakku, there’s been a stirring in the Force. A young scavenger named Rey, a deserting Stormtrooper named Finn, an ace pilot named Poe, and a dark apprentice named Kylo Ren. Their lives are about to collide. The awakening is happening at your local comic shop this June with STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS ADAPTATION #1!
I’m very interested in seeing the Joe Quesada variant, and I’m sure we’ll learn more about it before the June 22nd release.
