With Star Wars: The Last Jedi set to arrive in theaters in December, Marvel is jumping on the comic book tie-in action with Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Storms of Crait #1 by Ben Acker, Ben Blacker, and Mike Mayhew.
In Star Wars: The Last Jedi, it becomes a battleground between the Resistance and the First Order, but that wasn’t the first time Crait became a place where heroes and villains clashed in their fight for the galaxy. Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa once took up arms on Crait and led the rebellion as they as they searched for a new home – and a new base for the Rebel Alliance. Tying in to the eagerly anticipated December film, STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI – STORMS OF CRAIT promises to be a new and exciting adventure for all Star Wars fans – and a story that will change the galaxy as we know it.
“We’re excited for the opportunity to tell this story,” said editor Jordan D. White in a press release from Marvel, “Tying the new sequel series in more tightly with the original trilogy era, and helping make the Galaxy Far Away a little more fleshed out. The Bens are a great fit in for Star Wars, as they showed in Join the Resistance, and Mike has did such great work on both covers and the Obi-Wan issues of the flagship Star Wars title, that we couldn’t be happier to have him back doing art for us.”
Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Storms of Crait #1 arrives in stores on December 27, 2017.
