If you thought Marvel was the place to go to for Star Wars comics, you need to take a gander at what IDW Publishing is doing with the few titles it is working on. In 2018, IDW Publishing is set to release Star Wars Adventures: Forces of Destiny – a weekly comic book series that follows the adventures of Leia, Rey, Padmé, Ahsoka, Hera, and more!

Just as exciting are the talented creators who will be bringing these beloved characters’ stories to life, including an impressive roster of female writers from across the galaxy: Delilah S. Dawson, Elsa Charretier, Beth Revis, Jody Houser, and Devin Grayson.

Art and covers will be provided by Elsa Charretier, Arianna Florean, Eva Widermann, Valentina Pinto, and Nicoletta Baldari. Charretier will also contribute five interconnected variant covers, which combine to create an iconic Forces of Destiny image. Collectible animation cell variant covers will be available from your retailer, as will a super-rare variant by Annie Wu.

“The Forces of Destiny initiative has won over fans with its inspiring tales about these iconic heroes,” says Senior Editor Denton J. Tipton. “IDW Publishing couldn’t be more excited to be part of the celebration of these beloved characters.”

Yes, this is a weekly series, and yes, you can expect to see tales featuring Rose and Paige from the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi. As an all ages series, this book should be one that flies off the shelves and be on more shelves than just those found at your local comic shop.
