Luke and Leia will team up for a brand new The Last Jedi comic tie-in, Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Storms of Crait. The new one-shot will be written by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker (Star Wars: Join The Resistance) with artwork by Mike Mayhew (Star Wars, The Star Wars)
The one-shot will take us back in time to the Galactic Civil War where Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa search for a new rebel base on the salt-covered world of Crait.
The comic will provide further history about Crait, which aims to be a main battleground planet in The Last Jedi between the Resistance and First Order.
Editor Jordan D. White loves how this comic will tie-in the original trilogy with the new one.
We’re excited for the opportunity to tell this story, 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 for StarWars, as they showed in Join the Resistance, and Mike has done such great work on both covers and the Obi-Wan issues of the flagship StarWars title, that we couldn’t be happier to have him back doing art for us.
Take a look at Marco Checchetto’s striking cover of both Luke and Leia on Crait.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Storms of Crait #1 arrives from a galaxy far, far away on December 27, 2017.
