Storms Of Crait Comic Reveals Backstory To Star Wars: The Last Jedi
In Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi, the Resistance hunkers down on Crait in hopes that they can hold off the First Order long enough to ensure the Resistance’s survival – but over thirty years before that happened, Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa scouted the location as a potential base for the Rebel Alliance. An all-new one-shot comic will tell that story.
According to Newsarama, the comic is 40 pages in length, is written by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker, and is illustrated by Mike Mayhew. A preview of the cover (illustrated by Marco Checchetto), followed by six textless pages previewing the comic, can be seen below:
The official press release is as follows:
