The new Star Wars comic Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Storms of Crait #1 is set to explore the key planet in Star Wars: the Last Jedi. This special, one-shot comic will be released right after the film on December 27th. It’s going to explore Crait, a mineral planet that looks like it will be a battleground between the Resistance and the First Order. Honestly, it looks really interesting, especially for comic fans. So, what’s it all about and what does it have to do with the film?
It will be written by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker (Star Wars: Join The Resistance) with art by Mike Mayhew (Star Wars, The Star Wars).
The basic plot of the comic revolves around Luke and Leia during the Galactic Civil War as they head to Crait in search of finding a new base for the Rebel Alliance.
The editor of the comic, Jordan D. White, says this about the new story:
“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.”
I don’t know about you but I love Star Wars and I love comics so I’m really excited about this.
