STAR WARS ADVENTURES Comic Series Announced at Celebration

STAR WARS ADVENTURES Comic Series Announced at Celebration

Although Marvel Comics has been kicking all kinds of intergalactic butt lately with their relaunch of the Star Wars line, another prominent comics publisher is joining the iconic heroes and villains in that galaxy far, far away. Publisher IDW Comics is joining the Lucasfilm family this year with an all-new comic book series called Star Wars Adventures, this time aimed at younger readers.

The new comic is set to debut in the fall of 2017, just a few months shy of the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The series will span the decades in which the saga takes place, featuring characters from the prequel films, the Clone Wars animated series, the original trilogy, and the new films starring Rey, Finn and Poe. You can check out artist Eric Jones’ exclusive piece of promo art for the new series down below:

The art style from Eric Jones should seem familiar to fans of the original Clone Wars micro-series that aired many years ago on Cartoon Network, from animator Genndy Tartakovsky. Obi-Wan is even wearing his Clone-Trooper armor from those episodes in the promo image. Those cartoons were amazing, so if this comic is at all reminiscent of that show, Star Wars fans are going to be in for a treat.

Of course, this won’t be IDW’s first time playing in the Star Wars playground, as they previously published reprint Star Wars content like Micro Collectors Fun Packs and the award-winning Artist’s Editions. And coming soon, there will be a series of new collections of classic Star Wars newspaper strips, which will be available beginning in May.

Storyline details and creative teams for Star Wars: Adventures will be made public in a future announcement. Remember, Comic-Con and D23 are just around the corner. There is much more Star Wars goodness yet to come!

Are you excited about this expansion of the Star Wars comics universe? Let us know down below in the comments.
